SIAST doubles Ag Machinery seats

Technician program increase responds to industry demand

In response to industry demand, the Saskatchewan Institute of Applied Science and Technology (SIAST) will double the number of seats in its Agricultural Machinery Technician (AMT) certificate program next year, bringing capacity to 24.

Dealers across Saskatchewan report a significant shortage of technicians, exacerbated
by a retirement rate of approximately eight per cent annually.

“I would like to commend SIAST on responding to industry demand by doubling the number of Agricultural Machinery Technician training seats,” said Hon. Rob Norris, Minister of Advanced Education. “As part of the Saskatchewan Plan for Growth, our government wants to ensure our post-secondary students are receiving the training needed to find careers in our growing labour market. This training expansion is just another example of how we are linking learning to earning.”

“We have a large agricultural base in Saskatchewan,” said Dennis Johnson, dean of SIAST’s Industrial Training Division. “We know the SIAST AMT program is critical to this
industry. The current shortage of agricultural machinery technicians can make it very difficult for farmers to get their equipment fixed and continue working in the field.”….read more
