Customized Onsite Industrial Maintenance Training

Most training is too generic and not hands-on enough to be effective for maintenance technicians.  MST's training process enables a custom approach, allowing technicians to practice skills that are relevant to their job and equip them with the necessary knowledge needed to keep your operation running at maximum efficiency. Experts in mechanical and electrical principles, MST offers customized industrial training services in-person and online. At any site, on any schedule, MST drives higher performance through personalized, comprehensive training to improve your organization.

All courses include the following:

Instructors who are experts in their field and have extensive plant experience
Use of hands-on training simulators with real-world plant components
Hands-on exercises and practice that target the needed skills
Thorough, performance-based final examination that is required to successfully complete the course

We offer a robust course catalog to cover your training needs! Our current offerings include:

Electrical Power

MST’s Electrical Power class is the starting point for working with industrial electricity, mastering electrical safety, electrical meters, series and parallel circuits, and proper electrical terminations over four sessions. Following this lineup, the class dives into more fundamental work to cover 3-phase electricity and industrial motors. For industrial engines, trainees are taught proper use and troubleshooting best practices.

Mechanical Concepts

Building on the Maintenance Fundamentals course, our Mechanical Concepts class is the next step in the Mechanical training process.Training sessions in the Mechanical Concepts class include Precision Measurements, Bearings and Seals, and proper installation techniques for Belts and Sheaves, Chains and Sprockets, and Drive Couplings.

Electrical Controls

Picking up where the Electrical Power class left off, Electrical Controls builds upon electrical knowledge fundamentals. This basic understanding is used to expand the technician’s electrical knowledge to include troubleshooting industrial electrical schematics and electrical components typically found in an industrial environment. These components consist of pushbuttons, selector switches, relays, timers, and sensing components, including photoelectrical and proximity switches.

Pneumatic Controls

A fusion of mechanical and electrical principles, the Pneumatics Controls class combines the lessons from our Mechanical Concepts and Electrical Controls classes. This class focuses on industrial pneumatic troubleshooting using pneumatic schematics and typical industrial pneumatic components such as pneumatic filters, regulators, lubricators, solenoids, and various types of air cylinders with electrical feedback.

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs)

The Programmable Logic Controller class was created to develop PLC troubleshooting skills for technicians. Focusing on input/output (I/O) wiring along with typical I/O failures, this class incorporates PLC monitoring to troubleshoot failure issues through a complete understanding of PLC instructions and their application within the program. Trainees will learn valuable skills such as online access, forcing, uploading, and downloading in a classroom environment.

Analog Controls

For the instrument technician, we’ve thoughtfully developed the Analog Controls class. This class addresses industrial methods of measuring temperature, pressure, level, and flow. Sessions on PID control take a fundamental approach to the parameters associated with this type of control with real-world guidelines to setting the P, the I, and the D. This course wraps up with a comprehensive application of final control elements including I/P, analog solid-state relays, and variable frequency drives.

Maintenance Training Classes

Maintenance Fundamentals

Covering the essential responsibilities of maintenance technicians and more, our Maintenance Fundamentals class includes industrial safety, basic math and measurements, blueprint reading, hand and power tools, and even extends to more advanced equipment such as drill presses and horizontal band saws.

Hydraulic Controls

Hydraulic Controls follows the Mechanical Concepts and Electrical Controls classes, incorporating the mechanical and electrical knowledge necessary for troubleshooting such components. This course covers valves, solenoids, cylinders, and hydraulic motors, with flow meters and pressure gauges utilized to demonstrate flow and pressure variations.
