Certified Maintenance and Reliability Technician Exam Prep

240 Hours / 12 Months / Self-Paced

Course Overview:

Industrial Maintenance addresses the needs of the multicrafted maintenance technician and presents an all-encompassing view of the field of industrial maintenance, which covers a variety of technical skill areas. These include, but are not limited to, mechanics (mechanical installation, fluid power, piping systems, power transmission, print reading, and safety, to name a few), electrical (electrical theory, test equipment, electronics, the National Electrical Code, control circuits, rotating machines, PLCs, and drives, for example), and welding (gas welding and arc welding). A multicrafted maintenance technician must have knowledge and skills in all these areas. Industrial Maintenance addresses these areas in a format designed with the technician in mind.

Industrial maintenance technicians must be multiskilled (or multicrafted) in order to perform their required job duties. As a result, these individuals must possess knowledge in three key areas: mechanical, electrical, and welding. To facilitate learning in these areas, Industrial Maintenance is divided into five sections: General Knowledge, Mechanical Knowledge, Electrical Knowledge, Welding Knowledge, and Preventive Maintenance. Mastery of the required competencies in these areas is demonstrated by the completion of assignments in the accompanying workbook and by passing related tests created from the accompanying test bank.
