Industrial and Farm Mechanics I teaches skills to maintain, repair, and overhaul industrial equipment and farm machinery. The fabrication of specialty equipment is also performed quite regularly. Students will evaluate all components of a machine, ranging from electronics to hydraulics to structural components. Though they may not yet possess the skills to correct a malfunction, students will learn how to diagnose machinery to determine whether or not it is operating properly. Some of the skills learned will be welding, metal cutting, metal shaping, small engine repair, project estimation, some automotive repair like brake systems, and oil changes.
This course is held at PIRCTC in room 418.
