Industrial Maintenance Technicians are skilled mechanics that install, repair, and maintain industrial machinery. They usually work in manufacturing plants or small factories where they ensure the smooth running of in-house production equipment.
In this program you will earn several certifications! Certifications include CPR, Forklift, Bridge crane, OSHA, Electronics, PLC, and more!
Entry level positions start around at $36k per year. Experienced workers can earn up to $90k per year.
Here you will receive an introduction to alternating current electricity. When analyzing AC circuits by use of AC network theorems, resonant circuits, and filter circuits, you will study the characteristics of sine wave including:
Variable frequency drives (VFDs) are a type of motor drive used in electromechanical systems.
This course introduces you to VFDs and their applications in industrial plants. Through hands-on exercises and scenarios you will learn how VFDs control AC motor speed and torque by varying motor input frequency and control associated voltage or current variation.
