Lake Land College offers Industrial Maintenance certificate

With the growing manufacturing industry throughout central Illinois, it’s a perfect time to earn an industrial maintenance certificate from Lake Land College.

The industrial maintenance certificate is a year-long program that introduces students to a variety of topics such as machining procedures, industrial safety, motors and generators, troubleshooting and much more. 

According to Tim VanDyke, technology division chair, this program prepares students to either continue with their education or enter the workforce directly.

“We’ve been working with area industry leaders and they continue to tell us that the skills we teach through the Industrial Maintenance Program are ideal for the positions they have open within their facilities,” said VanDyke.

Lake Land has also partnered with industry leaders like General Electric in Mattoon to offer this training certificate to its current employees. 

“We’ve worked with GE to tailor the program to fit the needs of their current employee pool,” said VanDyke. “The GE students come to campus twice a week for class and maintain full-time employment at the lamp plant.”

 To learn more about the Industrial Maintenance Program at Lake Land College, contact VanDyke at (217) 234-5313 or tvandyke@lakeland.cc.il.us.
