Students learn how to integrate decision making, troubleshooting, problem solving, and critical thinking into their classroom training through project-based learning and other activities.

The Facilities Maintenance program enables our students to perform mechanical operations found in the maintenance industry. All training in this program provides our students with the ability to work safely, follow instructions, and work productively on an individual basis and with others in a team environment.
