About the Apprenticeship program

The RDO Apprenticeship/Traineeship Program is for Australian citizens who are passionate about Mechanical Technology, Parts Interpreting, Small Motors, Sales and Administration. We encourage people who are looking to start their careers in a supportive, reputable and strong John Deere business to participate in work experience if you are still at school, (even if it is during the school holidays) and taste a trade to see your suitability. One day is never the same! Come prepared and enthusiastic and you will learn with some of the most experienced Mechanical Technicians in both Agricultural and Construction and Parts Interpreters in the industry.

You will be provided with a structured apprenticeship or traineeship process, supported by Tafe training or a registered training organisation. This is your opportunity to show your commitment and be enthusiastic about learning whilst being paid to work and training, getting good practical skills and knowledge skills that we require and gain nationally-recognised qualifications along the way.

What our team members have to say:


It’s fantastic to be recognised as a leader in the field. I strive to see each customer having their machine operating in top condition and minimal down time. To have such great support from all at RDO Vermeer demonstrate how it’s such a team effort.
– Pete, Service Technician

The nomination alone has been a great confidence boost to me. For most of my working life, I have always strived to be honest and reliable. This nomination is a personal justification for all the hard work I have put in. I look forward to the challenges and experience that these awards will provide.
– Poul, Parts Interpreter

I believe that being nominated as the RDO Vermeer Apprentice Service Technician of the Year is not only a great achievement for myself but also for the tradesmen and managers within the branch. Being nominated for this award is a great opportunity to represent my branch and the great work we do here at RDO Townsville. I am excited to meet new people within the company and to learn and take in as much knowledge as I can.
