Manufacturing Technology: Industrial Maintenance Specialization, AAS

MAFT.AAS.V62

Program Overview

The Manufacturing Technology: Industrial Maintenance Specialization is designed to prepare students to construct, install, maintain, troubleshoot, and repair electrical circuits and systems in the manufacturing setting. This program is designed to develop practical skills in drafting, welding, troubleshooting and repairing electrical circuits, precision measurement, welding and machine tool. Basic knowledge, fundamental skills and industry standards will be emphasized. Students are required to purchase a minimum set of components and/or tools for some courses.

The core competencies of manufacturing production taught in this program are based on the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council criteria. The MSSC is an industry-led, training, assessment and certification system focused on the core skills and knowledge needed by the nation’s front-line production and material handling workers.

Students can finish a number of short-term training certificates as they progress through the program, and can join the program at multiple points, depending on assessment results and educational goals. To be successful in the Industrial Maintenance Specialization, students should first complete the Manufacturing Production Certificate.

This program was created as part of the Illinois Network for Advanced Manufacturing, which includes 21 Illinois community colleges.

Additional Program Information

Students who successfully pass all four assessments (MAFT 1112, MAFT 1222, MAFT 1232 and MAFT 1312) will be recognized as a Certified Production Technician (CPT) by the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council (MSSC).
