The Industrial Maintenance Technology department offers two programs: 1) a one-year curriculum that leads to a Vocational Certificate in Industrial Maintenance; and 2) a two-year curriculum that leads to an Associate of Applied Science degree in Industrial Maintenance.
See required courses link for more information.
The Industrial Maintenance Technology curriculum is a technical program designed to prepare students for entry-level employment as multi-skilled maintenance technicians. Industrial maintenance technicians are responsible for assembling, installing, and maintaining/repairing machinery used in the manufacturing or industrial environment.
Students receive basic instruction in a wide variety of areas including: safety, machinery maintenance, troubleshooting and service; blueprint reading; basic welding and cutting operations; basic machining operations; fundamentals of piping and hydro-testing; and fundamentals of industrial electricity.
The Industrial Maintenance curriculum embeds opportunities to acquire multiple credentials through the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER).
This program requires an ACT Score of 18 in the Composite and Math areas as well as a Silver Certificate on the Workkeys exam.
A passing score of 55% on the BMCT (Bennett Mechanical Comprehension Test) is also required. Please see the program advisor or a counselor for additional information regarding testing times, locations.
This program prepares students for careers in fields like industrial maintenance, equipment service, equipment/machine operation and technical equipment installation.
Local companies such as PACCAR, Stark Aerospace,
Aurora Flight Systems, American Eurocopter and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers hire applicants with industrial maintenance training and education.
