Are you looking for a rewarding career?

ThinkBIG about your future.

Ring Power’s ThinkBIG technician scholarship program helps you build a career you can be proud of.

ThinkBIG is a two year specialized program for those technically minded, hands on individuals with a desire to understand underlying theoretical principles governing some of the largest most advanced equipment in use today.

ThinkBIG students alternate between South Georgia Technical College and their sponsoring Ring Power branch where they put their learning into practice in paid internships. Upon graduating they have earned an Associate Degree in Applied Technology and stepped into a career where they will make a difference in our world while earning the means to build the life they've dreamed of.

"Joining the ThinkBIG program was one of the best the decisions I have made. I am not the kind of person to have an inside job, said Patrick Fortunato, a ThinkBIG student.  “This career, with the education the ThinkBIG program gives, allows me to be able to work my way through the company and have an almost unlimited amount of career growth. In this day in age the smartest decision any young person can make is to get an education.  For someone who wishes to be educated and have a fulfilling career working with their hands, the Think Big program, in my eyes is, the only option." 

A career as a Dealer Service Technician means no two days will ever be the same. You'll solve big problems, using advanced technologies to service and repair machines and engines, and interface with customers in more than ten different industries.
