Why did you choose PCC?
PCC began a new program called FAME (Federation for Advanced Manufacturing Education) which boasted not only getting an education but also hands-on experience in the field. I had never seen a program like this so I decided to jump at the opportunity.
What will I learn?
The Industrial Technology Maintenance program will help you develop essential skills for maintaining the complex electromechanical systems found in modern automated manufacturing facilities. After completing a core of courses in math, fundamental analog, digital electronics, and programmable logic controllers, you will learn advanced concepts in electrical and mechanical systems. The program emphasizes a broader range of skills including print reading, motors and controls, and mechanical components.
The new Solar Photovoltaic Installer Certificate teaches you about safety, racking systems, and the installation of electrical and energy storage components. You’ll also learn how to inspect, test and commission the system. (This certificate is currently pending financial aid approval.)
