Matching Funds Available for Training Program

In partnership with the Community College of Allegheny County, the Allegheny Conference is offering a pilot program in which companies can register incumbent workers (current employees) to participate in a program of e-learning and laboratory sessions with hands-on industrial simulators, which will enhance their troubleshooting skills in mechanical, electrical, and electronic (PLC) content areas. The Industrial Maintenance Technician Pilot is part of the plan to build 21st Century Career pathways in energy and manufacturing.


  • Mechanical: Mechanical Drives, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electro-Fluid Power 1, Hydraulic, Troubleshooting 1, Piping Systems
  • Electrical: Basic Electricity, Electrical Motor Control, Industrial Electrical Wiring 1, Industrial Power, Distribution 2
  • Programmable Logic Controllers (1-3)

The program is scheduled to begin in September.  Courses are individually paced and learners have up to one year to complete the coursework.  CCAC will work with employers to develop a schedule of classroom and laboratory hours that meet the needs of their employees/students.

Regular cost for the entire in-class portion is $5,900, however, the Allegheny Conference will provide support in the amount of $2,950 per student for this pilot program only (up to 12 total participants).  There are additional charges for e-learning that can be purchased depending on the time the student is in class: 3 months, $75; 6 months, $150; and 12 months, $300.

Funds are limited, so inquire now for more information.
