Mechanical equipment maintenance technician careers offer some of the highest paying and most satisfying opportunities available as companies increase their usage of newer and more complex machinery. A highly trained/highly skilled technician can earn more than $50,000 per year in today’s sophisticated workplace. To perform these jobs well, technicians must have higher skill levels in a wider range of technologies than ever before. Our Mechanical Systems Program includes training in mechanical drives, pumps, pneumatics, hydraulics, electricity-electronics, welding, and piping.
