The Manufacturing Maintenance Technician certificate prepares students for careers in the manufacturing industry that are essential for keeping manufacturing facilities productive. These careers involve the set-up,preventative maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of a wide-range of industrial machinery. Students will learn hands-on skills in fabrication,machining, and welding through project-based lessons. Theoretical content in mechanics, fluid power, electronics, robotics, programming, and precision measurement will be reinforced with laboratory interactions using state-of-the-art industrial machinery. Students will specialize by selecting elective courses that emphasize curriculum in a variety of technologies.
We project that this certificate will produce 10 to 20 completers per year.
Create a flexible educational pathway aligned with Manufacturing Technology that allows students to gain skills and be employable in one year.
Provide local industry with a workforce that has specific skills tailored to niche manufacturing.
Offer a credential that addresses targeted industrial concepts so that students will rapidly become eligible for occupations such as Helpers-Installation,Maintenance & Repair Workers (49-9098.00), Maintenance and Repair Workers, General (49-9071.00), Industrial Machinery Mechanics (49-9041.00), Millwrights (49-9044.00), and Maintenance Workers, Machinery (49-9043.00).
Enhance our Manufacturing Technology Program to include additional areas of study such as Industrial Systems Technology and Maintenance (0945.00) and Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology (47.0303).
After successfully completing this program, a student willbe able to:
1. Set-up, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair a variety ofindustrial machines.
2. Demonstrate safe work habits using a wide-range of tools,chemicals, and materials.
3. Perform process optimization using industrial concepts such as statistical process control, root cause analysis, and lean manufacturing.
