Original Press Release

Brooks, OR – April 23, 2024 – Chemeketa Community College marked the launch of its new Kubota Tech and NC3 partnership with a successful open house event.

The new NC3 & Kubota Tech partnership provides students with a pathway to earn industry-recognized certifications focused on the repair and service of Kubota equipment, giving them the knowledge and skills for employment as a diesel technician in the off-road diesel industry.

“Kubota Tech training supports our commitment to preparing students for careers in the off-road diesel sector,” stated Kevin Ruby, Diesel Technology Program Chair at Chemeketa Community College. “This partnership not only aligns with the industry’s expansion but also presents an exciting avenue for hands-on training, empowering our students with the skills needed to excel in this high-demand field.”

“Through the NC3 & Kubota Tech program, students have the opportunity to learn an in-demand technical trade, receive hands-on training, earn industry-recognized certifications and develop highly marketable skills that will help set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive workforce,” said Jeff Wagley, manager of educational partnerships for Kubota Tractor Corporation.

The event began with a welcome session, followed by a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by Amy Loyd, Ed.L.D., Assistant Secretary for the Office of Career, Technical, and Adult Education at the U.S. Department of Education and Congresswoman Andrea Salinas of Oregon’s 6th District, Kubota dealers and prospective students. Attendees also had the opportunity to tour the facilities and meet program faculty and industry representatives.
