Industrial Maintenance Technology - Mechanic

Industrial Motor Controls

Students learn to construct, troubleshoot, service and repair computer systems, related components, software, and install and maintain local area networks. At the end of the program students are prepared to take the A+ certification exam for Computer Technicians as well as for entry level.     Possibly the most popular entry-level certification is the A+. This is an excellent certification for anyone looking to enter into the world of information technology.
Industrial Motor Controls provides a comprehensive coverage of the control devices used in contemporary industrial electrical systems. Beginning with basics such as hand tools, safety, electrical symbols, line diagrams and meters, the students will draw, wire and check many different motor control circuits. Many of the devices used on the labs have been donated by local industries and therefore help familiarize the students on what they will see in industry. Instruction in different methods of two-wire, three-wire and Programmable Logic Control for a variety of switches, contactors and motor starters is included.

Students will be given an opportunity to acquire certifications in Contren Electrical Level One and OSHA 10 which are nationally recognized certification programs. The Contren Electrical Level One Exam can be used as a verified credit if the student passes an on-line assessment of the course. Apprenticeship programs have been approved for students that meet the requirements and may begin any time after mid-term exams their senior year. Each student will receive three (3) high school and three (3) Danville Community College credits for completion of this course.
