The Industrial Maintenance program allows the student to earn two one – year certificates (Entry and Advanced) as well as the opportunity to earn an Associate’s of Applied Science (AAS) in Industrial Maintenance. The Industrial Maintenance field is a growing career field and the need for the number Industrial Maintenance craft workers is projected to increase by almost 20 % over the next ten years. The Certificates and the AAS degree are valuable assets for an individual when applying for an Industrial Maintenance position with most large to medium companies. The Certificates and AAS degree prove that you have the necessary training, experience and education for their entry level positions. This gives you an advantage when applying for an open position.
The Industrial Maintenance program was developed with the input from leading local industries and is continuously critiqued and reviewed by an advisory board that is composed of technicians, supervisors and engineers from these industries. The program also meets or exceeds the requirements of the State of Texas Workforce Education requirements.
The Industrial Maintenance program is also incorporating the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) curriculum into the educational process. NCCER is a nationally recognized organization that is a leader in the development and training of craft workers. Upon completion of the Industrial Maintenance program in addition to the Certificates awarded by Texarkana College and the AAS degree a student will be eligible to take the NCCER credentialing exam in Industrial Maintenance. The successful passing of the exam will provide the student an NCCER credential that is recognized nationally and internationally. This provides the individual a skill set that is recognized as valuable locally as well as nationally.
