Industrial maintenance mechanics (IM Mechanic) are needed in every industry that uses machinery, from assembly plants to power manufacturers. Not only do mechanics repair and maintain equipment, they also install and dismantle it. Every time a new appliance leaves a factory or a new car rolls off the line, a skilled mechanic played a role in producing it. Wherever there are machines, there will be a need for maintenance craftworkers.
NCCER’s four-level curriculum covers topics such as Oxyfuel Cutting, Introduction to Piping Components, and Laser Alignment.
