Facility Maintenance Mechanic

Geared to both entry-level workers and veteran personnel, the curriculum helps trainees perform up to the task within a typical industrial plant or off site at a service location.

After initial courseware covering pre-technical foundation skills in industrial math, measurements, and safety, they'll learn all about blueprint reading, building, troubleshooting, mechanical maintenance, electrical and electrical motor maintenance, and welding equipment / techniques.

Take advantage of supplemental courseware in basic electronics, steam boiler and generator maintenance, and refrigeration and air conditioning skills if your employees require specific training to work at your plant. Successful program graduates will be able to:

  • Perform multi-craft tasks associated with in-plant or facilities maintenance.
  • Read and interpret the standard prints, drawings, and schematics used in the building, electrical, electronic, mechanical, and metalworking trades.
  • Identify the tools, equipment, and skills used in industrial plumbing, pipefitting, and HVAC.
  • Handle preventive maintenance and equipment downtime situations and procedures.
  • Explain and apply the principles of fluid power and hydraulic systems and the associated equipment operations and maintenance skills.
  • Install and test electrical wires, circuits, and equipment using the correct equipment, materials, and procedures for safe operation.
  • Learn the concepts of welding fundamentals, gas and arc welding practices, and the proper use of equipment.
