Maintenance Awareness - MSSC (ended)
#: CMAE 1526   ID: 61020   Section: 01-61020  
MSSC Training for Secondary & Post Secondary Instructors

This course aligns with the Manufacturing Skill Standards Council’s (MSSC) assessment and certification system for Maintenance Awareness.  The curriculum is based upon federally endorsed national standards for production workers.  The course introduces the concepts of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and preventative maintenance with the fundamental principles of lubrication, electricity, hydraulics, pneumatics, and power transmission systems. 
This two-day course will prepare participants with the skills and knowledge to pass the MSSC Certification exam for Maintenance Awareness.  If not registered already, participants will register with MSSC on the first day paying the one-time registration fee of $60 with a credit card.  The $45 exam fee for the Safety assessment will be paid at the same time.  The exam will be administered at the end of the second day of training allowing participants to gain the skills and national credential in two days!
Clock hour certificates will be awarded upon completion of the course.  In addition, participants who pass the certification exam can apply to Pine Technical and Community College for Credit for Prior Learning at no cost.  The MSSC Maintenance Awareness certification leads to two college credits for CMAE 1526 Maintenance Awareness.
Because of grant funding, the cost of this course is minimal.  The course registration fee is $55 payable by credit card or PO.  Participants will be provided the course textbook and lunch both days.  In addition to the knowledge to prepare your students for high-demand jobs in manufacturing, participants will gain access to curriculum resources including hands-on activities specific to this course.

This course will be online due to the Covid 19 outbreak. The certification testing will be Friday June 12th at PTCC at 9am
