Addendum to Course Description
Required Course for Apprentices registered in the Millwright/Industrial Maintenance Technician Apprenticeship Program. It is open to any other student but requires Department Permission to take this course.
Intended Outcomes for the course
- Determine the appropriate monitoring technologies that are applicable to a site specific piece of industrial equipment and/or machinery.
- Collect data using appropriate instrumentation, such as Infrared Thermography Cameras and Ultrasonic Detectors, for a site specific piece of industrial equipment and/or machinery.
- Use computer software to create a written PdM plan based on data collected from site specific industrial equipment and/or machinery.
- Apply appropriate maintenance procedures, using a PdM plan, to Industrial equipment and /or machinery
- *Define lubrication processes with trade-specific industrial materials and equipment (*required statewide outcome).
- *Develop machine shops skills in troubleshooting (*required statewide outcome).
Course Activities and Design
The Course Design is primarily lecture with in-class demonstrations of monitoring technologies, instrumentation, and tools; and the application of computer software to develop written PdM plans.
Outcome Assessment Strategies
Assessment will be accomplished using skills' checklists filled out by an adequate sampling of Millwright/Industrial Maintenance Technician Training Agents and/or an Apprentice's Journey Person.
