The instructors we are using all have a minimum of an Associates Degree. But more importantly, our instructors have a minimum of 45 years in industrial maintenance expreience and teaching. Our instructors have all interviewed and were tested by representative of the JBMC. The JBMC made recommendations on who to hire, and that is who we hired. This goes along with the demand-driven, employer-led model we have developed at John Jay Center for Learning.
The SkillsTrac program is presented in five(5) levels, one building upon the next. The program is designed to train students to be skilled industrial maintenance technicians and mechanics. The classes cover safety, measurement, rigging, hand and power tool operation, industrial electricity, morors and motor controls, fluid power, basic welding and machining, industrial controls and PLC programming, automation and robotics.
47.0303 Industrial Mechanics and Maintenance Technology A program that prepares individuals to apply technical knowledge and skills to repair and maintain industrial machinery and equipment such as cranes, pumps, engines and motors, pneumatic tools, conveyor systems, production machinery, marine deck machinery, and steam propulsion, refinery, and pipeline-distribution systems.
We accept interested students as they come. If students need help or remediation to get through the SkillsTrac program, John Jay also houses the Adult Basic Education program where students can get help.
SkillsTrac is a unique program that is completely compentacy based with students entering and exiting the program at their own pace. With this said, we will accept new students on a daily basis. The compentacy based program was developed with working adults in mind.
