ONGOING LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT

Build a Career That Matters

Cat® dealer technicians are amongst the very best, with Cat dealers and Caterpillar offering world-class training and development. We depend on talented people to maintain and repair Cat equipment and encourage professional growth through ongoing technical and leadership training opportunities.

See some of the programs built to help Cat dealer technicians become the best at what they do.

Technicians for the World is an online program sponsored by Caterpillar that meets the growing need for skilled service technicians. The program began with Technicians for Africa, which launched in Nigeria, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It has since expanded to more than 30 countries. We also launched Technicians for Arabia in 2018 and started Technicians for the Caribbean in 2019.

ThinkBIG is a 2-year program teaching students how to service Cat equipment using cutting-edge diagnostic and maintenance systems, advanced technologies and high-tech tools. It combines classroom work with hands-on learning in the field and in state-of-the-art labs, so students see technologies in real-world applications—solving problems and helping Caterpillar customers get their jobs done. Graduates of ThinkBIG receive an associate’s degree in applied science.

However, this 4-year program also equips students with engineering technology, theory, logic and business skills to broaden their knowledge and make them more versatile employees. Graduates of ThinkBIGGER receive a bachelor of science degree in science and technology.
