    Course Description: This program is offered in partnership with Joliet Junior College and will be held at the Main Campus. Students will participate in four separate college courses building skills and awareness in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, industrial maintenance, basic wiring/circuit design, and industrial fluid power. Students will learn about OSHA safety programs, maintenance physics, hand and power tools, precision measuring, technical diagrams and assembly prints, fastening devices, lubrication, basic pump operation, and basic pipefitting procedures. Students will study the principles of hydraulics and pneumatics as applied to the basic theory of fluids and typical industrial circuits. Students will build fluid power circuits as applied to industrial applications. Next, the fundamentals of electrical and electronic circuits, including the usage, print reading and exposure to a variety of electrical technologies currently used in industry. Topics included introductory residential wiring, operation of AC motors, industrial solid-state devices, variable frequency drives, industrial controls and single-phase/three phase power distribution along with skills necessary to safely use electronic test equipment on low- and high-voltage components. The course will introduce students to the installation, service, troubleshooting, and repairs on various types of electrical controls, circuits and components. Students will need their own transportation to and from class. Students must submit an application to the technical Department at Joliet Junior College. Application to the program is required. Students will be dual enrolled earning high school and college credit in IMT 101, IMT 121, EEAS 111, and EEAS 101 (14 credit hours). Recommended that students have solid math schools with a record of good attendance and behavior.
