Diesel ButlerMAX Option
Lake Area Tech is excited to partner with Butler Ag Equipment to offer ButlerMAX, an ag-focused option in our Diesel program. The ButlerMAX option will train and prepare students to enter the field as ag diesel technicians in Butler Ag Equipment and Butler Machinery Company dealerships in South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, and Montana.
Students will spend half of their time on Lake Area Tech’s campus and the other half at a Butler dealership. During their time, they’ll complete hands-on training on industry-leading agricultural equipment, classroom instruction, and a paid internship at a Butler dealership location.
Successful applicants to the ButlerMAX option will receive a scholarship and paid internship package starting at $30,000. During the first year of the internship, students will earn wages starting at $16 per hour. Graduates of the program will earn an Associate of Applied Science degree in Diesel Technology from Lake Area Tech and will have the opportunity for full-time employment at a Butler dealership.
