LandMark Implement has a special program to offer high school students the opportunity to attend college and earn a degree at LandMark’s expense.
Students who attend Southeast Community College in Milford and go into the John Deere Tech program are eligible for LandMark’s tuition remission program. This program provides an opportunity for 100% paid tuition, books and fees with a $5,000 stipend for a tool set and guaranteed employment after graduation for students who successfully complete the two-year program.
This model program is the first of its kind in the United States. It’s offered jointly by John Deere and SCC Milford in cooperation with John Deere dealers.
To apply, a student needs to find a LandMark location for sponsorship. At this location they will have off campus training, as well as a three-year contract with the location after graduation. After selecting a location, the student then needs to apply to the John Deere Tech program at SCC Milford. Students are still encouraged to apply for Financial Aid and other scholarships through their high school, college or other outside scholarships.

Qualities of a successful technician are a high mechanical ability, and basic math skills. Technicians also need good communication skills. They must be able to read, understand and follow written directions, and read manuals and computer-generated instructions. A detail-oriented mindset is also essential for technicians to accomplish a job thoroughly and completely. Technicians at LandMark also work cooperatively as part of a team, allowing them to be “mind-on” as well as “hands-on.”
With locations across Nebraska and northern Kansas, it’s easy to find a LandMark location to sponsor students across the region. There is a LandMark Implement dealership in each of these communities: Arapahoe, Beatrice, Fairfield, Gothenburg, Hastings, Hebron, Holdrege, Kearney, Lexington, Marysville, Minden, Phillipsburg, Red Cloud, Shelton, Smith Center and Superior.
