Mechanical Maintenance

Comprehensive Training Systems For Mechanics, Technicians, And Mechanical Systems Specialists

Comprehensive Training Systems For Mechanics, Technicians, And Mechanical Systems Specialists.

New mechanical maintenance strategies such as TPM and preventive maintenance are placing new demands on mechanics, technicians, and other mechanical systems specialists to upgrade their skills as quickly and efficiently as possible in order to maintain job security and enhance their chances for career advancement.

Industrial Mechanics introduces trainees to what they need to know to perform well on the job immediately, with minimal learning curve. Key subjects include: bearings, seals, and lubrication; hydraulics and pneumatics; mechanical power transmission systems; and robotics.

You and your employees can choose from a variety of self-paced topical programs that group together related coursework and are designed for flexibility, addressing the professional and personal needs of each student. Like all Penn Foster training systems, Industrial Mechanic courses are available in print, video or via Computer Based Training (CBT and CD).
