Multi-Craft Industrial Technology

The Multi-Craft Industrial Technology program is a machine maintenance based program that prepares students to trouble-shoot and repair machinery.

Skilled industrial positions are in demand and companies are hiring. The trend in the maintenance industry across the nation is a shift from having skilled workers who specialize in only one craft such as welding, hydraulics, electricity, or mechanical repairs to a worker skilled in all areas of maintenance, referred to as multi-craft.

Many Multi-Craft Industrial Technology (MIT) students have jobs before they graduate and local manufacturers are hiring our students because they have the training they need for an entry level skilled industrial position.

When you graduate from Apollo’s MIT program you’ll be able to maintain, troubleshoot and repair high-tech machines, tools, electronics, and equipment essential to the success of today’s business and industry. In some instances you will start with the design phase of a project and progress through the building, assembly and troubleshooting phases including welding. These individuals play a critical role in service quality and their responsibilities are great.

Course work includes the following:

  • OSHA Safety
  • MIG, TIG, and ARC Welding
  • Technical Mathematics
  • Dimensional Metrology
  • Blueprint Reading: Mechanical
  • Electrical Schematics
  • Technical Sketching
  • Single Phase Circuit
  • AC Motor Controls
  • Machine Control Systems
  • Machinery’s Handbook/Metallurgy
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC)
  • National Electric Code
  • Analog/Digital Electronics
  • Maintenance Machining (Engine Lathe/ Vertical Milling Machine)
  • Integrated Circuits/Microprocessors
  • Industrial Mechanical Drives
  • Hydraulics / Pneumatics
  • Professional Development
  • Resume writing, job search and interviewing skills and employability training.

Robotics Certification – NEW!

If Apollo’s MIT program interests you, ask about our new Fanuc Robotics Certification course. This program trains students how to use the latest real-world robotic automation while applying science, technology, engineering and math in both a hands-on and on-line learning environment.

After completion of this course, a student will have the knowledge to use the teach pendant, move robots in 3D, view multiple windows, create a robotic work cell, edit robot properties, parts and fixtures and create fixtures for pick and placement.

A Fanuc Robotics Certification will be issued upon successful completion of the course, qualifying the student to enter the workforce as a Robotic Technician in virtually any industry in the country.

The class is 40 hours.

Customized Training Available

Apollo offers customized training for area business and industry in manufacturing, healthcare, transportation, public safety and computer technology.

We can provide high quality skills training at your company or on Apollo Career Center’s main campus.

Our team of industry experts offers flexible scheduling for both day and evening training. For more information please contact our Adult Education office at 419-998-3000 and ask about our customized training options.

Articulation Agreements

Apollo has articulation agreements which link the classes taken at Apollo with courses offered at State supported two-year colleges. The intent of the articulation plan is to recognize student achievement in career programs by providing advanced placement at the college level. The advanced credit earned reduces the number of credit hours needed for a degree. Students will not need to re-take classes already completed.

Multi-Craft Industrial Technology Testimonial

“I chose to go back to school after being laid off from my job and the best decision I have ever made was choosing Apollo Career Center. The training I received from Apollo has enabled me to find a job in Dayton, OH with a very good company even before I graduated. Thanks to the great teachers and staff, I am on my way to a very successful career.”
