Current job role: Field Service Technician, CNH Industrial

Previous course: Level 3 Extended Diploma in Land-Based Technology, 2014

“Reaseheath’s links with industry helped to further my skills and knowledge – not just through the provision of modern machinery – but also through the contacts I made. On completing my course, I progressed into a paid product support internship at CNH Industrial and this led to a full time role in their product support department.”
