Tolles Proposes Adult Manufacturing Maintenance Program – Seeks Feedback

In response to a shortage of maintenance personnel to replace aging and retiring workers,the Tolles Career and Technical Center is exploring the creation of a new program: an Adult Manufacturing Maintenance Training Program. Tolles is located west of Columbus.

The Tolles manufacturing and engineering department is proposing to create a 350 hour industrial maintenance program.This program would include classes in Robotics, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, PLCs, Machining, Blueprint Reading/GD&T, Safety, Maintenance Principles, Welding, Fittings and Connections, and both Electronic and Industrial Electric Maintenance. Official certifications would be available for some courses.

As a result, Tolles is asking for manufacturers’ feedback about the viability of this new initiative. Provide feedback here.

This program would meet the demands of the manufacturing workforce by quickly training students for entry-level employment in industrial maintenance with a flexible course schedule and at a competitive rate. 2/12/2018
