Top Competencies/Learning Outcomes
Apply basic mathematics to the solution of problems, develop understanding of basic measuring instruments and their uses, and develop an understanding of theoretical AC & DC Electricity.
Read and interpret basic industrial diagrams and blueprints that include international standard symbols and drawing practices.
Read, analyze, and use technical documents such as spreadsheets, basic fluid power schematics, industrial prints, electrical schematics, and other drawings showing the basic components of a mechatronic system.
Apply basic troubleshooting techniques to various industrial manufacturing systems.
The credential was developed to fulfill the mandatory related technical instruction for Indium Corporation’s Industrial Manufacturing Technology (IMT) apprenticeship program.
Upon completion of the IMT apprenticeship, individuals receive a portable journey-worker credential and 9-credits of advanced standing toward MVCC’s Mechatronics and Electrical Service Technician programs.
How the Credential was Developed
The curriculum development was a collaboration between MVCC faculty and representatives from Indium Corporation.
Classes are taught in an Indium-run technical training location by MVCC faculty.
The Targeted Learners
The learners are apprentices with Indium Corporation, and they are directed into the credential because it is a required component of their apprenticeship program.
Since the courses are restricted to Indium apprentices, the College can maintain intrusive, just-in-time supports to ensure learning and completion.
To date, the College has onboarded 1-cohort with 100% retention into the second course.
