Industrial Maintenance Technology Accepting New Students
Olney Central College’s Industrial Maintenance Technology Program is currently accepting new students for the fall semester.
The IMT courses are designed to prepare students for employment and advancement in today’s technologically advanced industrial workplace. Portions of the curriculum are online and include virtual lab simulators. During the program, students study fluid power pneumatics and hydraulics, relay control, motor controls and heating, ventilation and air conditioning.
Most of the IMT classes are hybrid courses, which allow students to complete some coursework at home or in the computer lab while still maintaining face-to-face contact with the instructor. Students can complete a progression of three certificates, which can lead to an associate’s degree.
The IMT Program is ideal for recent high school graduates or individuals looking to retrain for the job market. Those already working in the field can increase their chances for advancement and higher salaries by completing the program.
Those interested in the program are encouraged to meet with an advisor as soon as possible. To schedule an appointment, contact the Student Services Office at 618-395-7777. Students interested in the program will need to complete CIS 1104 Introduction to Online Learning prior to Aug. 21.
