A basic course of study that will develop the student's understanding of reading schematics and symbols through lectures and hands-on examples.
This course provides instruction in rigging and lifting techniques including usage and inspection of rigging equipment, developing lift plans, anchoring to concrete, and heavy machinery installation. Students will be expected to perform lifts independently and in groups.
This Course will introduce students to the basics of preventative maintenance programs in an industrial environment. Students will learn about how maintenance departments are organized, how projects and tasks are defined and delegated. Topics will include Maintenance organization, work order systems, maintenance planning, Scheduling, Quality control, Controlling parts and materials costs.
This course will introduce students to industrial machinery and power equipment with respect to industrial maintenance. Students will learn the fundamentals of electro-mechanical machinery repair, assembly and disassembly and how to work safely around mechanical equipment and power tools. Topics discussed will include hand and power tools, preventative maintenance, power transmission systems, fasteners and torque.
Emphasizes theories and practices useful in troubleshooting failures in electrical applications. Focuses on the overall philosophy and strategy of troubleshooting, drawing applications from residential and varied industrial situations. Includes laboratory projects.
This course emphasizes applied electromechanical principles. The theory and application of force, work, torque, energy power and force transformers are explored. Covers motion control systems, basic relay circuits and sensors, stepper and servo motors and power transmission systems. Introductory mechanics areas also covered, including simple machines and an introduction to static and dynamic forces.
This second course in industrial machinery will focus on advanced concepts in machinery trouble shooting, repair and maintenance. Students will learn about the integration of mechanical, fluid power and electrical systems, their characteristics and repair.
