Gateway Technical College students will soon gain the skills and certifications to work on Kubota equipment and help meet the increasing demand for qualified, early career technicians who can work on the heavy equipment at dealerships and other businesses.
Diesel students will begin gaining those starting in the Spring 2019 semester. Gateway is one of only five institutions nationally to be initially approved to provide this training, and was chosen because of its national reputation for automotive and diesel training as well as its cutting-edge equipment and facility. Gateway delivers nationally recognized training and certifications for other equipment, as well.
The partnership between Gateway, Kubota and the National Coalition of Certification Centers for this effort was announced recently. The training will provide a great opportunity for students to become skilled and proficient as technicians of the equipment, help diversify their skills and make them more marketable to a wider range of employers.
