This senior only program is offered in partnership with Joliet Junior College and will be held at the Main Campus on Hoboult Rd, Joliet, IL.  Students will participate in four separate college courses building skills and awareness in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, industrial maintenance, basic wiring/circuit design, and industrial fluid power. Students will learn about OSHA safety programs, maintenance physics, hand and power tools, precision measuring, technical diagrams and assembly prints, fastening devices, lubrication, basic pump operation, and basic pipefitting procedures. Students will study the principles of hydraulics and pneumatics as applied to the basic theory of fluids and typical industrial circuits. Students will build fluid power circuits as applied to industrial applications. Next, the fundamentals of electrical and electronic circuits, including the calculation and measurement of voltage, current, resistance and power will be instructed with emphasis placed on safe meter usage, print reading and exposure to a variety of electrical technologies currently used in industry. Topics include: introductory residential wiring, operation of AC motors, industrial solid-state devices, variable frequency drives, industrial controls, and single-phase/three-phase power distribution along with skills necessary to safely use electronic test equipment on low- and high-voltage components, the course will introduce students to the installation, service, troubleshooting, and repairs on various types of electrical controls, circuits and components.  Students will need their own transportation to and from class.  Students must submit an application to the Technical Department at Joliet Junior College.  Students will be dual enrolled earning high school and college credit: IMT101, IMT121, HVAC121, and EEAS101, 13 credits.  Guidance Notes:  Solid math skills needed with record of good attendance and behavior.
