If you're in high school, or looking for a change, you can get a head start on a career as a Butler Dealer Service Technician.
ButlerEdge, the Ag Technician Program, is designed to develop technically competent entry-level Service Technicians. Butler sponsors students enrolled at Mitchell Technical Institute in Mitchell, South Dakota.
Students receive up-to-date technical training on various equipment and systems through a combination of classroom instruction, hands-on laboratory instruction and an internship* at Butler. Work experience at the dealership is structured to relate to the most recent classroom/lab subjects covered at school. Upon completion of the program, graduates earn an Associate in Applied Science degree (AAS) and a full time job is reserved for them upon graduation.
Starting Fall 2015 ButlerEdge will be divided up into nine terms, each approximately eight weeks in length. Students complete the 1st, 3rd, 5th, 7th and 9th terms on campus at Mitchell Technical Institute in Mitchell, South Dakota. They complete the 2nd, 4th, 6th and 8th terms interning at a Butler location. During these paid internships, students will earn over $17.25 per hour with a mandatory minimum of 1,280 internship hours. Students are responsible for housing, tuition and tool costs.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Rebecca Rensvold at 701.298.1735.
*Our First ButlerEDGE class starting FALL 2014 will NOT have the internship option, year one will be classroom work only at MTI. Starting May 2015 students will be able to start internship at their sponsoring Butler dealership.
