Local economies always need good jobs, and local employers always need qualified candidates. To help this combination become reality in Greenville, NC, Caterpillar Forest Products, Cat® dealer Gregory Poole Equipment and Pitt Community College have joined forces to develop top-notch logging-equipment operators.
Pitt created a 12-week course to train logging-equipment operators who, upon graduation, are certified by the North Carolina Association of Professional Loggers as entry-level logging-equipment operators. To support the course, Caterpillar Forest Products donated $1.25 million in equipment to the program, including a Cat 525C Skidder, a Cat 573 Wheel Feller Buncher and a Cat 559 DS Loader package, while Gregory Poole is maintaining the equipment.
