Industrial Maintenance and Mechatronics is a comprehensive text that provides curriculum support for Industrial Technology Maintenance (ITM) programs. The text consists of 40 chapters grouped into sections that correspond to principal industrial technology disciplines, with a special focus on electrical systems and electronic controls. With an exclusive endorsement from NIMS, this learning program is designed to work hand-in-glove with the NIMS Smart Duties and Standards for Industrial Technology Maintenance, providing students with the necessary knowledge and skills for entry-level positions in industrial maintenance and helping them prepare for NIMS credentialing. Instructors and students will appreciate the convenience and value of a comprehensive text that can be used in multiple courses and programs.
This organized, student-friendly text imparts need-to-know information in an accessible style. While providing the background theory instructors look for, the authors also explain why ITM students need to know it. They have drawn on a deep reservoir of industry and teaching experience to bring the material to life with Tech Tips and other features that support hands-on learning. As a member of the NIMS Technical Working Group that prepared the Industrial Technology Maintenance Duties and Standards, Mr. Shearer gained a deep understanding of the competencies desired by NIMS industry partners. Mr. Ballee is a member of the NIMS Advisory Council and he has also served on MSSC's National Expert Panel.
