Industrial Maintenance Training & Apprenticeships

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

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

The mechanical maintenance apprenticeship program by Penn Foster Workforce Development provides mechanics, technicians and mechanical systems specialists with the educational tools and training to elevate their skill set, which boosts job performance and mitigates production problems.

Preventative maintenance guidelines and Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) for example, are designed to eliminate mechanical breakdowns, technical disruptions and equipment failure in a production environment. The goal is to alleviate production problems by employing highly trained and qualified mechanical maintenance operators and personnel who have extensive preventative maintenance knowledge and training in the most up-to-date best practices. Subsequently, mechanics and technicians who strengthen their skill set and progress their knowledge base have increased job security and opportunity for advancement in an array of mechanical careers.

Professional development apprenticeship and topical programs highlight the following subjects that trainees can learn immediately and efficiently:

Our industrial and mechanical training course programs are designed to meet the needs of employees and their employers. Various topical programs, from hydraulic systems repair and maintenance training to mechanical training for field service technicians, promote self-paced, flexible learning experiences led with industry expert coursework.
