Students will learn bearing design and application, bearing failure and analysis, properties of lubrication and correct lubrication procedures, gear drives, belt drives, gear reduction units, and chain and shaft drives. Troubleshooting and maintenance of these types of power transmissions will be emphasized.

Introduction to Industrial Controls 602-103 - 90 hours

Industrial electrical hardware such as motors and controls are studied. Industrial electrical control circuits are developed and wired. Troubleshooting techniques are used to correct problems in wiring or controls. Motor starters, industrial control relays, timers, proximity switches, and electric eyes are studied, including proper selection and wiring techniques. Ladder logic and wiring diagrams are examined and drawn. This course is for an individual that already has a basic understanding of electricity.

Workplace Safety MSSC  625-147 - 18 hours

This course introduces the student to safety and loss prevention in the workplace with an emphasis on the workers awareness for maintaining a safe, productive environment.  The student will study safety concepts, hazards controls, developing safety and heal programs and Federal and State mandated regulations.  This course will also focus on specific content in the MSSC Safety module.

Torque Applications 601-413 - 10 hours

Students will be trained, tested and certified on various torque instruments ensuring proper tool set-up and physical technique. Students will receive general hand tool safety and electrical safety plus must perform lab tests with all the equipment available in order to receive certificates. Students will develop a new appreciation for the complexities behind the proper tightening of fasteners. Students will get instant “actual torque applied” feedback while using each tool on a calibration machine, so they can hone their technique and become accurate and precise.

Speaking Principles 801-302 - 36 hours

This course focuses upon developing speaking, verbal and nonverbal communication, and listening skills through individual presentations, group activities and other projects. Students learn to: select appropriate means to convey a message, speak clearly so others can understand, write with clarity so others can understand, ask questions for clarification, participate in discussions and group presentations, interpret nonverbal communications, use active listening skills, and apply spelling, English grammar and punctuation.
