Calling all Ag Mech and Heavy Duty Mech alumni! Join us at the Ag Mech 50th Anniversary Reunion on November 9-10, 2018, as we celebrate our past, our growth, and the future of the Olds College Agricultural and Heavy Equipment programs.

When the doors of Olds College first opened over 100 years ago, students were instructed in all facets of farming in Alberta. This included learning to repair the equipment used on the farm to help increase efficiency and production on the farm. After all, there were no ag technician shops to call when you had an equipment failure – you had to take care of broken equipment on your own.

By 1968, equipment had become so specialized that there was simply too much to teach in the confines of an agriculture program. Students needed a dedicated program to learn how to repair the ever growing and evolving equipment that they used. It was at this time that Olds College established a new program that would forever change the landscape of our College. Since that first year in 1968, Agricultural Technicians and Heavy Duty Technicians have become a cornerstone of the Trades and Apprenticeships offerings of Olds College. Equipment has continued to grow, the agriculture industry continues to rely on increasing efficiency and higher yields to ensure profitability, and as such, agricultural and heavy duty mechanics are more important than ever.

Today, the Agricultural & Heavy Equipment comprehensive program provides students with a thorough understanding of the fundamentals in engines, hydraulics, braking, electrical, starting, charging, fuel systems and more. It provides an excellent opportunity for students to be fully introduced into both the Agricultural Equipment Technician (AET) and Heavy Equipment Technician (HET) trades. We are proud to offer a program that is supported by our industry.
