Production Line Maintenance Mechanic

Production Line Maintenance Mechanic covers the theory and instructional skills of maintaining production line equipment.

Covers the theory and instructional skills of maintaining production line equipment.

Developed for both production and maintenance staff in a discrete manufacturing operation, this extensive topical program introduces a broad range of important topics for workers cross-trained in technical foundation skills, electrical principles, motors and machines, fluid power and hydraulics, and mechanical power transmission machinery.

An initial grounding in pre-technical foundation skills provides trainees important background material and/or a chance to brush up on existing skills. Optional supplementary lab work is electronics and DC principles is available midway through the curriculum. Students will learn to:
