Industrial Maintenance and MechanicsDIPLOMA, 72 CREDITS
Are you someone who likes challenges and can think under pressure?
This Riverland program is one of a kind in Minnesota. Machines are getting more costly to maintain and good maintenance workers play a major role in cost control.
Students will receive training in the maintenance and repair of industrial equipment including operation of lathes, mills, drills and small tools used for machine repair.
Our programs also focus on hydraulics, pneumatics, piping, sheet metal, electrical, bearings and seals, blueprint reading, preventative/predictive maintenance, safety and welding. Welding classes include gas, ARC, tig and wirefeed.
This program includes preparation for boiler exams. In the first year, you will prepare for a special engineer license exam. Upon successful completion of this exam, students start clocking hours with actual operation of an in-house boiler. In the second year, students will be qualified to apply for and take the Second Class high pressure boiler exam. After graduating, students will hold a Minnesota Steam Engineer Second Class License Grade A or B license.Location: Albert Lea
