ThinkBIG is a 2-year hands-on program. You’ll learn secrets to servicing the most advanced heavy equipment in the world. Students accepted to OSU Institute of Technology’s Cat® Dealer Prep program have the opportunity to work with their head and their hands on the most advanced and powerful machines built by the world’s leading manufacturer of construction equipment, Caterpillar.
Those in the two-year Cat program will spend half their time on campus for technical instruction on current products and equipment learning the latest diagnostic and service procedures. The rest of the time will be spent getting real-world training through paid internships at Cat dealerships.
Caterpillar dealers have a critical need for highly qualiﬁed, motivated and skilled employees who can diagnose problems, ﬁnd solutions and perform equipment service and repair. The Cat program upgrades the skills of incoming service technicians and trains students to use recommended procedures, special tools and service information in order to maintain Caterpillar equipment.
Graduates with an Associate in Applied Science who complete the Cat Dealer Prep program become a part of team that helps get important work done like building projects and road construction.
