The heavy equipment industry offers tons of opportunities for people with the right
skills and education to meet growing demand. Western States Cat offers two specialized
programs that provide the education and hands-on training you need to become a
Caterpillar trained technician. The sooner you get started the sooner you can get to
work – on the job, on your career, on your life.

at an Idaho college followed by a 3-month capstone internship within the
area. Ideal for recent high school graduates or individuals with no prior
industry experience from military service or on-the-job training.
The 24-month entry-level program created in partnership with an Oregon-based
college, featuring alternating on-campus academic terms and paid internship
rotations within the region. Designed to meet the needs of recent high school
graduates or anyone who lacks post-secondary technical training or job experience.
