Students are able to learn hands-on in program labs by completing course assignments that mimic real project work in the field. Students will not only learn to operate the equipment found in the workplace but also how to complete typical jobs that facilities maintenance technicians would complete on a daily basis
This program provides the training needed to service, maintain and operate equipment found in public, commercial and other buildings. The required skills and knowledge that students will learn include basic carpentry, basic electrical, basic HVAC, basic plumbing, electrical control devices and safety. Graduates of this program can perform various building tasks from basic repairs to operating computerized building automation systems.
Many of the program labs in the technology wing of the Kenosha Campus have recently been extensively remodeled. Through partnerships with Trane, Bahco, and Snap-on Incorporated, state-of-the-art equipment and tools have been added to the new Facilities Maintenance lab, Refrigeration lab, Industrial Heating lab, and Electronic Energy lab.
