Provides the learner with opportunities to practice the principles and procedures of laboratory medicine in a clinical laboratory setting including the operation of state of the art instrumentation and the use of laboratory information systems to report results. The fourteen competencies will be divided between Clinical Experience 1, Clinical Experience 2 and Clinical Experience 3. Order that competencies will be covered vary based on staffing at clinical sites.
Applies the principles of industrial control systems. Students learn the fundamentals of operating various industrial control systems including open/closed loop servo-hydraulics and PID control systems.
Introduces General Industry Safety Practices and is intended to provide an entry level worker’s general awareness on recognizing and preventing hazards in a general industry setting. An OSHA 10 General Industry certification will be obtained with completion of the course. In addition, lab specific safety will be covered. OSHA has some very specific rules for receiving the certification card for OSHA 10. OSHA 10 Cards can only be issued to students in the face-to-face classes who attend every class. OSHA will not allow anyone taking this course in an online/flex format to receive a certification card. If you need the OSHA 10 card upon completion of this course, please be sure you are enrolled in the face-to-face section.
Introduces the principles of motion control. Multi-axis CNC machines are operated using G-Code programming and CAM software. Servo motors, stepper motors and feedback devices are studied using hands on lab activities.
Introduces troubleshooting methods that apply to basic motor control circuits, PLC applications, VFD applications & mechanical system applications. Troubleshooting methods are practiced using hands-on lab activities. Preventive & predictive maintenance techniques are also explored.
Incorporates the detailed study of mechanical power transmission system components. Included are gear, belt, chain and screw drive systems. Lab experiments include the selection, installation and maintenance of mechanical power transmission components and systems.
