Three students completing Northwest State Community College’s industrial automation maintenance program were recently recognized during a special event. The program prepares graduates for entry-level positions in the industrial maintenance field, teaching them how to improve and maintain automated equipment used in advanced manufacturing. Coursework includes troubleshooting PLC systems, robotics and other data collections systems.
Graduates also gained entry-level knowledge and hands-on skills in the areas of industrial electricity, machine repair, pipefitting, fluid power and welding. In addition to the industrial automation maintenance certificate from NSCC, students earned Lean Six Sigma Yellow Belt and OSHA safety certifications.
The following graduates were recognized:
Lucas County: John Eagan (Toledo), Zach Morris (Toledo)
Williams County: Scott Mocherman (Bryan)
Students received free tuition, books and support services for the program thanks to a grant from the US Department of Labor.
