What do Ashley Furniture, Pro Refrigeration, Dunlop Tyres, Ingersoll Rand, Hampton Inn, Wake Forest Baptist Health Davie Campus, Lee Jeans, Funder America, Avgol and CPP Global all have in common? They have all expanded or opened new facilities in Davie County over the last several years… AND, they all need people with proven skills in industrial technology.
In a perfect example of how North Carolina Community Colleges respond to the needs of local industry and prepare students for local careers, the Davie Campus of Davidson County Community College will offer a new course, Introduction to Industrial Technology beginning in February, 2015.
This course introduces students to the repair and maintenance of electrical and mechanical systems, and physical structures of commercial and industrial institutions. This introductory course will also prepare students to enter more advanced programs and apprenticeship programs at DCCC.
Topics covered include the following:
