At the core of every program at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center is the partnerships built with its business and industry. One such effort is between the Diesel Service Technology program at Caddo Kiowa Technology Center and Warren CAT in Oklahoma City. Recently Warren CAT donated a diesel engine (D3512 Cat V-12, min/1020 to 1500/max. HP) to the program.
“This creates a tremendous training opportunity for the students,” said Instructor Allan Leatherbury. “The students are all excited for the chance to learn on this new piece of equipment.”
“Our hands-on training helps shape student’s talents into marketable skills,” said Instructor Allan Leatherbury. “Through partnerships with our businesses and with donations like this, we are ensuring that students are learning skills they can apply to equipment in the industry.”
