“This was an instant return on investment, as we were about to build all new tooling for this set up, which most likely would have equaled or exceeded the training cost. It really made everyone around here happy today, saved a weeks’ worth of work and everyone was empowered by it.”

Mike Deye, owner of HPC Finishing

Robotic technology isn’t the future of manufacturing. It’s now. Are your employees prepared? Our introductory robotics course builds a foundation of knowledge by introducing participants to basic systems and operations, reinforced through hands-on training.

Build on that basic knowledge with our advanced course, which covers advanced programming, flex cell system integration and troubleshooting. Hands-on labs ensure students not only have the knowledge, but also understand how to apply it.

While our courses utilize the FANUC robot and controller system, this training is applicable to a variety of robotic systems.

Industrial Automation Maintenance

As manufacturing becomes more automated, the need for qualified technicians continues to grow. We offer individual courses to help fill skills gaps, a short-term certificate program designed to help advance career options, and an associate degree for those who want to take their IAM skills to the next level.

Industrial Electrical

Maintenance personnel have some of the most diverse job responsibilities in the plant. While their skillset is usually moderate in many fields, advanced training in some topics is necessary to help ensure safety and success. Our industrial electrical courses are designed to help bridge the gap between a maintenance technician’s basic knowledge and the more advanced electrical skills that are beneficial in a variety of industrial settings. Course topics range from DC & AC principles to installing and troubleshooting electric motor drives.

Fluid Power

Fluid power has transformed the way energy moves in the industrial setting. The right training will help ensure your employees are prepared to use this technology to its fullest potential. We offer both an introductory and an advanced class in industrial fluid power. These courses explore:

  • The physics of fluids
  • Troubleshooting and design applications for hydraulic and pneumatic systems
  • Hands-on work with electro-pneumatic valves, PLCs, in/out boxes and electrical switching devices
MSSC-Certified Production Technician

The Manufacturing Skills Standards Council (MSSC) is the leading certifying organization for front-line manufacturing and logistics employees. We are proud to partner with the MSSC to offer Certified Production Technician training. The program covers safety, quality practices & measurement, manufacturing processes & production, maintenance awareness and green production. Students must demonstrate their competency in each area through skills assessments in order to earn the certification.
