Students will have basic skills in piping systems and fundamental knowledge of industrial systems and their operations.



The Basic Industrial Systems Technology Certificate (BIST) was designed to educate students wishing to enter industrial manufacturing equipment maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair. Successful graduates of the program should be able to maintain and repair production equipment in the areas of mechanical, electrical, and hydraulic systems.



The BIST certificate supplies the basic knowledge for entry-level maintenance and repair technicians in manufacturing facilities. Manufacturing companies use a host of mechanical equipment such as presses, conveyor systems, wood and metal shaping, and applied coating applications. Students entering these companies need a strong background in electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic systems and an awareness of industrial safety procedures.
