Education Question

I am currenty studing Ag Technology Management with a specializaton in Ag Economics and KSU. I eventually want to come home and farm and was wondering if after I graduate from KSU if it would pay me to spend a year and a half at a vo tech to study ag equipment repair. Shop time in our area runs from $50 to $75 per hour and I think I could save myself quite a bit of money by learning more about equipment repair and performing all our farm repairs at home. Currently we do most of our own mechanical work with the excepiton of major engine or transmission/clutch work and I feel that I have pretty good mechanical skills already. I was just wondering if anyone else had gotten a four year degree and then gone back to a vo tech. In my current major, we learn all about equipment management but not so much about fixing equipment. I just want to give myself every advantage I can have when I actually get to start farming on my own (and that day cannot come soon enough!!). Thanks for any replies.
