Registration Deadline is April 23 for June NIMS Industrial Technology Maintenance

The National Institute for Metalworking Skills (NIMS) is offering an Industrial Technology Maintenance Course in Tucson, Arizona from June 7-11. Registration is due April 23. See the NIMS PDF flyer.

Participants will learn to incorporate NIMS industry standards and industry-recognized credentials into curriculum: pneumatics, hydraulics, electrical systems/electrical control systems, maintenance operations, basic mechanical systems, and process control systems.

“Industry wants people who are comfortable working with technology-driven machines. One hour of downtime could cost a company a half million dollars,” according to Pat Riddle, Mechanical Engineering and Industrial Maintenance Program Coordinator, Pellissippi State Community College.

Designed for maintenance and mechatronics instructors, the workshop prepares attendees to test students for NIMS credentials, includes theoretical and hands-on activities, lesson plans, and equipment reviews.
