Program Learning Outcomes
This program is designed to prepare students to demonstrate the following learning outcomes:
Identify, select, and operate appropriate test equipment and tools, and interpret test results to solve problems in a controlled environment.
Use team skills to collaborate and perform in a professional and workman like fashion in a diverse workforce and a dynamic environment to meet organizational goals and objectives.
Apply appropriate Math, Science, and computer skills to support installation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of electrical equipment and systems.
Utilize effective communication, time management and conflict management skills to propose solutions to technical problems to supervisors and team members.
Diagnose and resolve equipment problems by utilizing good technical assessment skills that include planning, reliability, logical thinking, ability to use drawings, schematics and documentation, and a fundamental understanding of electrical maintenance theory and principles.
Work with a safety-focuses mindset and follow industry safety standards, local regulations, and company policies and procedures.
Apply the fundamentals of electrical skills to install, troubleshoot, and maintain electrical equipment, such as commercial wiring, HVAC, motors, motor controls, and basic PLCs in compliance with National Electric Code.
Employ cross functional skills to differentiate between HVAC, boiler, piping and tubing, and electrical power systems, and isolate and resolve breakdown(s).
MATH-1140, MATH-1141, MATH-1200, MATH-1270, and MATH-1280 can no longer count towards fulfilling the college-level mathematics requirement. These courses were re-classified as developmental mathematics by the state of Ohio in 2016. Tri-C established a 5-year transitioning window for students who had completed these courses prior to 2016 to apply them towards meeting graduation requirements, which expired in Summer 2021. It is highly recommended to see a counselor to determine the appropriate math required for your current major.
