They are your unsung heroes. They are the first line of defense making sure your Cat products are ready to go wherever and whenever you need it. They are service technicians.

Whether they work for Carolina Cat, a local repair shop or directly for you, these men and women are critical to the success of your business. Over the next decade, Caterpillar, Carolina Cat and other Cat dealers alone will be hiring tens of thousands of technicians just to meet current demands.

Cat Trial 10: Tech Test celebrates the amazing work technicians do and gives them the chance to show off their skills! Technicians work in a fast-paced environment and Tech Test combines that with exciting challenges to test their skill and endurance.

The course consists of four challenges: The Cat Can Test is a 3D puzzle we designed; an oversized version of the one that some dealerships use to gage mechanical aptitude. Next, we test their desire to learn, where they’ll match Cat engines to specific applications. From there, they’ll hit the troubleshooting challenge, testing their knowledge of Cat services. And they’ll finish with a safety mindset assessment, where they use the Cat App to do a walkaround and pull a parts order.


Qualified technicians do so much more than turn wrenches. They understand your business. They understand your industry. They have access to all the latest tools and technology. And they have a team of people who serve as mentors, who guide them and help them learn to be the ultimate troubleshooters, doing their best to figure out your problems the first time.

Through guided training, like the Think Big program and hands on experience, they come experts who are knowledgeable in a wide range of technologies such as:

  • Electronically controlled engines
  • Sophisticated computer-based diagnostics
  • State-of-the-art hydraulics
  • Transmissions and more

And in the end, you'll have technicians as invested in understanding and take care of your equipment as your are in your business. They let you focus on what you do best.
