Preventative Manufacturing Maintenance
Manufacturing equipment needs to be maintained and kept in good shape for machine shops to meet their goals. This is the job of a preventative manufacturing worker. The Preventative Manufacturing Maintenance program trains students to work in machine shops as manufacturing maintenance workers. In just one quarter, students will learn to identify and work with lathes, grinders, milling machines, Computer Numeric Control (CNC) machines and other equipment used in manufacturing facilities. Students will learn how to use oils, solvents, lubricants, and hand tools. They will also learn to read basic blueprints, interpret schematics, and apply math in the field.
