The program is designed to provide a very broad and complete short term intensive training for individuals desiring to enter into the multiple occupations that make up the Advanced Manufacturing sector. Similar to the Electronics Assembly Technician program it continues to build in supporting the required training and skills needed in manufacturing. The program includes Basic Computer Literacy course, which will ensure basic computer usage for daily work requirements, National Electrical Code that will cover Electrical safety and terminology, getting acquainted with the NEC standard while learning such terms as, ampacity, bonding, branch circuits, conductors, energized, ground, the intent is to relate the standard to Electromechanical systems and assemblies and safety for the person and equipment. An in depth coverage of soldering theory, materials and tools, begin with the Universal Assembly & Repair course, to include projects such as wiring, terminals, component identification, and thru-hole soldering procedures and techniques. The Surface Mount course continues with the installation and removal of surface mount components, both soldering courses are project based that set the workman ship standard to IPC Class 3 levels. This program includes 3 IPC certification courses, the IPC-A-610F, IPC-J-STD-001F, and the IPC/WHMA-A-620B, together these cover the majority of assemblies and criteria that is required by most companies involved in the manufacturer of Electronics. This program also includes an Electromechanical Project, which will include safety requirements, chemical handling, chemical standards, and understanding chemical disposal according to MSDS standards, blue print reading, assembly drawings, and the requirement for assembly to conform to these drawings, installation of hardware according to applicable assembly drawings, use of torque equipment according to assembly drawings, industry or company specifications or requirements. In addition, Basic Math and Measurements will be covered and applied, the proper use of the following tools: microscope, scales/rulers (metric, British, decimal, fractions), calipers (analog and digital), ohmmeter/millimeter, crimpers, and an understanding of basic hand tools. The final course in the program sequence will provide an introduction and overview to manufacturing , covering materials, dimensions, tolerances, manufacturing processes, powder metallurgy, sheet metal working, brazing, soldering and adhesive bonding, mechanical assembly, production systems, process planning, cellular manufacturing, lean production, and product quality. This complete training provides a solid foundation to support the many occupations that Electrical and Electronic Equipment Assemblers are classified under, this program will support industries that are involved almost every area of Advanced Manufacturing. At the completion of this program the student should be prepared to enter into the work force and ready to be productive.
The following are titles associated with this career field: Electrical and Electronic Equipment Assemblers, Electromechanical Equipment Assemblers, Electro-Mechanical Technicians, Assembler, Assembly Worker, Production Worker, Electronic Assembler, Factory Assembler, Factory Worker, Armature Assembler, Breaker Units Assembler, Final Motor Assembler, Gear Assembler. The manufacturing sectors that build electromechanical electronics systems, assemblies and devices are many and include defense, medical, and avionics.
