NEW this Summer & Fall!
Clark College introduces a new program:
Industrial Maintenance Technology
Clark College will begin offering a brand new degree and certification instruction program in Industrial Maintenance Technology (IMT) with classes to start this summer and fall. In the Industrial Maintenance Technician program, students gain hands-on, practical experience in welding, hydraulics, electricity, mechanical fundamentals and machine alignment. Students build skills in electronics, computerized equipment maintenance and preventative/predictive maintenance.
Graduates of the industrial maintenance technician program leave with the ability to install, maintain and troubleshoot industrial mechanical drives; fluid power systems; industrial electrical control systems; process logical control systems; and fabricate and repair industrial equipment.
The maintenance technician must be a multi-talented individual with a specific skill set that can keep equipment and machinery operating at peak performance to eliminate costly down-time.
Employment opportunities are as follows: industrial maintenance technician, (multi-craft) maintenance mechanic, maintenance technician, maintenance specialists, maintenance electrician, or maintenance lead/supervisor/assistant.
The program will focus on the instruction of mechanical skills along with electrical training for machinery repair. Higher level math and technical competency will be required for admittance into the program and for successful completion of degree and certificate program requirements.
Instruction involving team participation skills will also be part of the program to make students more familiar with these kinds of technical processes increasingly utilized in today's work environment.
