On Aug. 1, 11 ThinkBIG applicants and their families gathered in St. Augustine, Fla. for “signing day.”

“You guys are the cream of the crop,” Teri Brown (Customer Training Manager) told the newest ThinkBIG interns. “We chose you not just based on your mechanical aptitude tests and interviews, but also your attitude.”

The 11 students make up the class of 2018, and are the largest group ever to enter the program through Ring Power.

Over the next two years, they will rotate in eight-week intervals between classroom instruction at South Georgia Technical College and hands-on training at Ring Power.

In addition to the heavy equipment technician track, a generator technician track is now available. Ring Power worked closely with Caterpillar to develop the curriculum for the new track — the first power systems ThinkBIG program in the world.

ThinkBIG is a technician scholarship program offered by Ring Power and five other Southeast Cat dealers in partnership with Caterpillar and South Georgia Technical College in Americus, Ga.

Welcome, Class of 2018!
