Industrial Safety and Manufacturing

Industrial Technician Certification

The skills required in this certificate prepare the student for an entry-level career in Industrial Maintenance Technology.

Math for Electronic Technicians

An applied mathematics course with emphasis on the numbering systems, calculations and problem solving skills needed to solve for electronic circuit parameters. Schematic and electronic terminologies are introduced.

  • Math Fundamentals: Reviews general math, basic algebra, and nominal trigonometry. Perform calculations involving whole numbers, fractions, exponents, logarithms, roots, percentages, radicals, and averages, basic trigonometry; demonstrate the ability to apply Ohm's and Watt's law.
  • Metric Conversions: Fundamentals, Length, Area, and Volume Conversions Mass: Units and Conversions Time: Units and Conversions Temperature: Units and Conversions Pressure and Torque. Reviews the International System of Units (Metrics) and how to convert to other systems. This includes three dimensional units, mass, time, temperature, pressure, and torque.

Technical Drawing - Basic Blueprint Reading

Emphasis on accurate/efficient interpretation of symbols/graphic language required to produce working drawings. Gives basic instruction for creating electronics drawings. Begins with general topics such as electronics terms, electronics symbols, and component descriptions and reference designations. Students progress into specific applications, including wiring, cabling, harnesses and component enclosures. Gives a basic understanding of mechanical drawing practices so the student can properly interpret blueprints. This includes threads, gears, and surface texture notations View and Sectioning Conventions, Dimensioning Practices, Tolerance as a method of control, Related Elements, Interpreting special applications.

Electricity I - DC Circuits

A study of the fundamentals of direct current including Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's laws and circuit analysis techniques. Emphasis is on circuit analysis of resistive networks and DC voltage measurements. – Gives a foundation in Direct Current (DC) Circuits and how voltage, current, resistance, and power all relate in circuits. DC motors are also introduced in this course.

Electricity II - AC Circuits 

A study of the fundamentals of alternating current including series and parallel AC circuits, phasors, capacitive and inductive networks, transformers, and resonance. Gives a foundation in Alternating Current (AC) Circuits to include capacitance, inductance, three phase power, diodes, filters, and AC motors. Prerequisite: CETT 1003 Electricity 1 - DC Circuits.

Pneumatics/Hydraulics - Basic Fluid Power

Course Description: Basic fluid power course covering vacuum systems, pneumatic and hydraulic systems, fluid power symbols, operating theory, components, and basic electrical and manual controls. Hydraulics – Introduces hydraulic concepts of mechanical control of cylinders, valves, etc. that are used in manufacture. This control includes the physics and formulas necessary to troubleshoot these systems in industry. Pneumatics – Carries the hydraulic concepts further to include that of compressible fluids and how compressibility affects the mechanical systems. Prerequisites: EEIR 1001 Math for Electronic Technicians (Recommended)

Instrumentation & Controls Technician

An entry level Industrial Instrumentation Technician trained to install,
maintain, troubleshoot, repair, configure and calibrate Electronic and Electrical
Motor and Fluid power controls systems.
