Think BIG about your career!
Are you interested in becoming a Caterpillar Service Technician with a specialization in Heavy Equipment or Electric Power Generation?

Thompson Tractor offers scholarships for the Caterpillar ThinkBIG program which is a two-year college education program.

The major emphasis of the ThinkBIG program is on heavy equipment engines or power generator repair theory and practical application.
