Advanced Manufacturing

Lehigh Carbon Community College’s advance manufacturing certificates are based on AM/IST level 1 & 2 training. The Advanced Manufacturing program provides students with essential skills needed to compete in today's workforce. The program coursework is designed to fit the needs of today's working student. The typical Advanced Manufacturing student, without any prior work experience or related education, starts off with the Production Technician course.

After the completion of the Production Technician course, students chose a program track. The following concentrations are available:

  • Industrial Electrical/Electronics Technician
  • Industrial Automation Technician
  • Industrial Mechanical Technician
  • Mechatronics

Each track specifies around a particular subject area, with the exception of Mechatronics, which encompasses all other concentrations.

Students complete the theory of their coursework online. Once modules are completed, the student comes in to take a hands-on test. The hands-on test requires students to visit the main campus to work with our industry standard advance manufacturing equipment under the direction of an instructor. Based on the student's online coursework and training, the instructor programs a fault into the equipment and asks that the student troubleshoots the fault. Like the online coursework, there is much flexibility in scheduling your on campus hands-on workshops. Your instructor will work with you to schedule your campus visit at a time that is most convenient to you.

In addition to providing a flexible learning opportunity to our students, the LCCC PATH Advanced Manufacturing Program works with local employers to design customized training that fits the needs of the organization.
