CCC'S HEAVY EQUIPMENT OPERATOR TECHNICIAN PROGRAM

In 2016, Central Community College in Hastings launched a new Heavy Equipment Operator Technician program. The AGC Nebraska Chapter chose to invest a total of $500,000 in this program - $250,000 was initially distributed in 2016, and then $25,000 will be given to the program each year for the next 10 years. The state of Nebraska has a huge need for heavy equipment operators, and we are confident this program will begin to fill those gaps in the workforce.
