Certificate of Achievement in Industrial Maintenance Technology
This certificate prepares students for entry-level employment in the fields of industrial maintenance, industrial machine operation, industrial electrician, corrections facilities maintenance, hospital engineer, and food service machine technicians. Students completing this certificate will acquire employment skills in the area of electricity, motor controls and programmable motor drives, programmable logic controllers, hydraulics/pneumatics, industrial mechanics, machining, refrigeration and boilers, and various welding methods.
- Identify, design, and troubleshoot an industrial electrical circuit with a multi-meter to industrial standards.
- Read a print, repair and maintain the mechanical components of hydraulic and pneumatic circuits found in industrial machines to like new condition.
- Design, program, and troubleshoot both programmable logic controllers (PLC), and variable frequency drives (VFD). This is accomplished in single phase and three phase circuits.
- Weld in three modes: MIG, STICK, and TIG to industrial maintenance standards.
- Have additional entry level job skills in: machining, boilers, refrigeration, mechanics, motor control, and fabrication.
- Possess entry-level job skills necessary to program controllers in the industry.
Upon successful completion of this certificate, students will be prepared for employment in the following fields: industrial maintenance technician, industrial machine operator, industrial electrician, corrections facilities maintenance, hospital engineer, and food service machine technician.
