Advanced Manufacturing Training

Under Advanced Manufacturing Certificate Training:

Our programs provide essential skills to compete in today’s manufacturing workforce. Our Production Technician training teaches “manufacturing fundamentals” and provides a foundation for more advanced training in electrical, mechanical, industrial automation, mechatronics or programmable logic controllers.
  • Production  Technician – Completion of this certificate will provide the student with knowledge in math used in industry; the line alphabet and understanding of blue print reading; facility electrical wiring; knowledge of hand tools used in industry; assembly techniques of hose and tubing fittings; safety and personal protection equipment; overhead crane safety, communication skills; working in groups; hazard materials and communication, conflict resolution; and the use of precision measuring tools.
  • Electrical Curriculum Level 1 – Completion of this certificate will provide the student with knowledge in basic circuit calculations of power, voltage, energy and resistance; facility electrical wiring; components used in controlling an electrical motor along with troubleshooting faults; basic conduit bending and the use of raceways; conductor disconnects and overload protection with wire sizing and pulling techniques; electro-fluid power components, control devices, sequencing control, timers, pressure control and circuit application; and programmable controllers, basic programming techniques, timer and counter instructions, event sequencing, motor control and troubleshooting.
  • Mechanical Curriculum Level 1 – Completion of this certificate will provide the student with knowledge in basic circuit calculations of power, voltage, energy and resistance; basic mechanical drives; v-belts and chain drives; heavy duty v-belts and chain drives, lubrication concepts, couplings and spur drives; bearing and bushings selection and maintenance; gasket and seals selection and maintenance; metal piping systems and installation, and metal tubing systems and installation; pneumatic construction; electro-fluid power components, control devices; and electronic sensors including: capacitance, inductance, magnetic reed, hall and photo-electric cells.
  • Industrial Automation Curriculum Level 1 – Completion of this certificate will provide the student with knowledge in circuit calculations of power, voltage, energy and resistance; facility electrical wiring; components used in controlling an electrical motor along with troubleshooting faults; basic conduit bending and the use of raceways; conductor disconnects and overload protection with wire sizing and pulling techniques; and programmable controllers, basic programming techniques, timer and counter instructions, event sequencing, motor control and troubleshooting; basic mechanical drives; v-belts and chain drives; industrial wiring of electrical panels and control panels; facility electrical wiring; electoral control systems, ladder logic, sequencing controls and timers; electronic sensors including capacitance, inductance, magnetic reed, hall, and photo-electric cells; and hose connections and repair.
  • Mechatronics AM/IST Level 1 – Completion of this certificate will provide the student with knowledge in all of the above topics covering electrical, mechanical and industrial automation.
  • Programmable Logic Controllers   Our programs align with PMMI “The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies” and prepare the student to test for one of the nationally recognized Mechatronics Certificates.  Credentials have  pathways that can lead to even more rewarding Associate Degrees at LCCC.
