Lake Land College’s power plant programs offer sustainable, local employment for graduates
The electricity industry is about ready to undergo some big changes throughout central Illinois. While electricity rates and consumption won’t change over the next three to five years, the demand for highly qualified employees who are looking for a long-term career will.
The Power Plant Mechanic program is designed to prepare graduates for employment in power generation facilities. The program focuses on multiple welding processes, machining and mechanical systems associated with power generation facilities. Graduates of this program will function as skilled technicians performing installation, troubleshooting, maintenance and repair of mechanical systems employed in the production of electric power.
Power Plant Technology graduates perform installation and maintenance functions on instrumentation and control equipment in electric utility power plants, and other related industries. Job responsibilities include installation, calibration, maintenance, troubleshooting, and repair of communications systems, motor controls, programmable logic controllers, pneumatic and hydraulic equipment, and HVAC systems. Upon successful completion of the program, students are prepared for entry-level employment in the utility industry as instrument control technicians or electrical repairmen in a power generation facility or related industry.
