The Industrial Maintenance Technology curriculum provides upgrading of skills for those presently in the manufacturing field or basic skills for those who want to enter the field. The certificate is based on developing preventive and predictive skills in the following areas: print reading, applied mathematics, hydraulics, pneumatics, power trains, mechanisms, electronics, and PLCs.
Credits earned may be applied toward the Electromechanical Technology, A.A.S. degree. High school graduate reading and writing skills are expected, as development of technical reports, use of technical manuals and interpretation of codes are required in these courses. Math skills should include practical knowledge of algebra, basic trigonometry, and geometry.
Courses in each level (Foundation and Core) must be completed prior to advancing to the next level. Where more than one course is offered within a level, courses may be taken in any sequence.
