Course Philosophy
The Industrial Equipment Maintenance Department’s philosophy is to provide and educate students in as many aspects of the Industrial Equipment Maintenance industry as possible and to provide them the opportunities to become skilled, successful citizens of the global community. The instructor is committed in providing a safe, industry-standard learning environment that promotes commitment, teamwork, communication skills, strong work ethic and responsibility. Students are encouraged to pursue work in a related field, continuous education and industry related training upon successful graduation from the department. During the senior year SkillsUSA competitions and championships reward students for excellence and keep training relevant to employers’ needs. An important part of the program is the PORTFOLIO. It provides students an experience that actively engages students in reflective exploration of self and to help students to make a smooth transition from high school to their post high school experience with resume development and interview skills.

The goal of this program is not only to produce skilled Industrial Equipment Maintenance workers who are ready to complete the various FCAW, GMAW, SMAW and GTAW welding exams, and skills with the lathe, but to give students the ability to adapt their talents to the ever-changing technologies in the job market.
