The AED Foundation recognizes the importance of building relationships and bridges among college diesel-equipment technology programs in the U.S. and Canada. Toward that end, the Foundation has launched the The AED Foundation Canada College Affiliate initiative. This initiative, combined with The AED Foundation’s Accreditation program, creates an AED Foundation “umbrella group” of North American diesel-equipment technology college programs. The value proposition to schools includes networking opportunities, sharing of best practices, student scholarships and more. This also positions AED and The AED Foundation to better leverage its resources, speak more forcefully to Career and Technical Education challenges that exist in North America, and facilitate positive change

Heavy equipment technology programs at Canadian colleges are eligible to become an AED Foundation Canada College Affiliates. Contact The AED Foundation for more information.
