This program will provide learners with the fundamentals necessary to diagnose, repair, and maintain outdoor power equipment with an emphasis on aluminum-haul harvesting boats. Preference will be given to those actively involved in wild rice harvesting or the maintenance of wild rice harvesting equipment. However, the mechanical skills you learn will be transferable to other types of old and modern engines.

This program is offered rotationally in two-week periods between November 2023 – May 2024 with a total of 180 hours of learning.

If you have questions about the open house or program, please contact the Program Coordinator Daniel Downs at 1 (877) 488-6888.
