Manufacturing Classes to Begin at The Hoke Center Soon

Programable logic controller (PLC) wiring cable communication and socket connection.If working with blueprints, drilling speed calculations or industrial mathematics piques your interest, check out the Advanced Manufacturing classes set to begin soon at the Hoke Center. And because of the generous donors to the College, these classes will be offered at no charge. The donors have paid the class fee.

Sandhills Community College continues to provide exceptional training for in-demand skills and even assists with job placement and career coaching. These courses do not take an extended amount of time to complete, and most students have employment lined up by the time they are completed.

These classes require face-to-face interaction. The College will stringently follow CDC recommendations and precautions for a safe environment. The number of students in the classroom has been reduced to allow for distancing and students are required to wear a face/mouth covering when on campus.

“Mechanical Power Transmission Fundamentals Level 1” is designed to provide students with the necessary foundation content to understanding working with mechanical power transmissions. This class covers reading blueprints, industrial mathematics to linear motion, drilling speed calculations and more. Topics are instructor led with hands-on demonstrations and troubleshooting performed by the student. Upon successful completion, students should be able to identify and apply learning to all fundamental content and demonstrate safe, proper maintenance and troubleshooting procedures.

“Mechanical Power Transmission Fundamentals Level 1” will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays, Aug. 17-Feb. 1 from 6-9 p.m. A second class will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Aug. 18-Feb. 2, from 6-9 p.m. The cost is usually $185 but the fee is being paid for by donors to the College this semester. Students will be responsible for the cost of text.

“Mechanical Power Transmission Fundamentals Level 2” covers the various mechanical power transmission technologies and their applications. Students will perform and understand safe proper service procedures, tools, proper installing and set-up procedures, and equipment necessary to analyze and repair typical industrial equipment. Emphasis is placed on mechanical equipment troubleshooting and repair, including common techniques and procedures.

“Mechanical Power Transmission Fundamentals Level 2” will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays, Aug. 18-Feb. 8 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. The cost is usually $185 but the fee is being paid for by donors to the College this semester. Students will be responsible for the cost of text.

In “Basic Programmable Logics Control” students will learn the basics of PLC operations. Students will learn how to create a PLC program and design complex logic operations. Storage function applications and how to implement program flow control will be covered. Analog processing and how to solve complex text assignments will be taught as well. This is the second of three classes in the SCC Automated Technology Certificate program.

“Basic Programmable Logics Control” will be held at the Hoke Center on Tuesdays and Thursdays, Sept. 1-Feb. 4 from 6-9 p.m. The cost is usually $185 but the fee is being paid for by donors to the College this semester. Students will be responsible for the cost of text.
