Production line workers with operator and control responsibilities benefit most from this topical training program. After an overview of important, need-to-know pre-technical foundation skills like measurements and safety, students receive intensive instruction principles of electricity, instrumentation and process control equipment, chemistry, and statistical quality control. Preventive maintenance procedures and standard troubleshooting techniques round out the curriculum. Trainees gain the expertise to:
- Understand the theory of how DC and AC circuits, components, and machinery function.
- Use the related mechanical principles and applications in the implementation, operation, and maintenance of instrumentation and process control systems.
- Learn how mechanical, hydraulic, and pneumatic components used in control systems convert measurements into useful data or appropriate system responses.
- Explain the classification and theories of chemistry, chemical elements and components, and how they are applied in an industrial production environment.
- Describe the use of statistical concepts and control charts in monitoring a manufacturing process.
- Apply quality and inventory control concepts to a manufacturing operation.
- Describe the basic preventive maintenance procedures for electrical and mechanical components, including scheduling downtime for equipment and using common troubleshooting skills, tools, and techniques.
