Industrial Maintenance Course Overview

With hands-on labs and an in-person, instructor-led online curriculum developed hand-in-hand with industry experts, our students receive relevant training fit to industry needs.18

Here’s a look at the courses in our Industrial Maintenance program (course titles and descriptions are subject to change):

Energy Industry Fundamentals and Safety Compliance

This course reviews the history of the power technology industry up to and including the present, as well as a review of common terminology and definitions used in the industry. Students engage in hands-on activities that support principles of physics as they apply to hydraulics and pneumatics, as well as the basic knowledge of the many components used in these systems.

Math, OSHA, and First Aid

Students cover mathematics that are applied to the relevant subject areas throughout the program, including applications of formulas, conversions, imperial systems, metric systems and additional subject areas relevant to progress in the program. Additionally, students learn the safety requirements while performing tasks on the job, including an understanding of Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and certification.

DC and AC Basic Electricity

In this course, students learn direct current (DC) electrical theory and applications. Students learn alternating current (AC) electrical circuit schematics and design, including AC electrical component operation, electrical fundamentals, circuit calculation, circuit design, circuit construction, proper procedures for testing for advanced electrical functions, and troubleshooting.

Applied Physics and Precision Measuring

In this course, students learn the proper use and interpretation of precision measuring devices like dial indicators, micrometers, calipers, depth gauges, and thread pitch gauges, as well as the importance of precision measuring devices. Additionally, students learn physics concepts and calculations with relevance to the disciplines of the program's course content.

Materials Processing, Fabrication and Diesel

In this course, students complete standard inspections, and preventative maintenance practices will be demonstrated. Students demonstrate what they’ve learned by completing assigned hands-on projects in the lab that bring together precision measuring, drilling, threading, fastening, torquing and similar other material processing techniques.

Industrial Heating and Cooling and Compression Systems

This course covers basic principles and fundamentals of refrigeration processes and operations, with a primary focus on industrial and commercial refrigeration equipment. Students study basic preventative maintenance, basic scheduled maintenance and basic troubleshooting.

Steam and Gas Turbines, Boiler Operations and Valves

In this course, students learn about scheduled and nonscheduled maintenance required for gas turbines. Students learn the basic operation and design of boiler systems, as well as startup and shutdown procedures.

Advanced Electrical Theory

Students are introduced to more advanced electrical theory and applications. Students work on projects that enhance their ability to design, navigate, troubleshoot and analyze circuits using electrical schematics.

Next Steps After the Program

After completing training in just 30-39 weeks in our Industrial Maintenance Technician program, students are prepared for entry-level roles in the industry.

There are several different career avenues1 that could be pursued by skilled industrial maintenance technicians, including:

  • Machine technician
