Power Technology O.E.

Juneau

Options include Diesel/Heavy Duty, and Diesel/Marine with an option for engine room preparation, and Mine Mechanic. Each provides technical courses in the appropriate specialty. Students must earn a 2.00 GPA in the overall program. These occupational endorsements articulate with the A.A.S. in Power Technology.

The Mine Mechanic Occupational Endorsement prepares the student to enter into the mining industry as an entry level diesel machinery mechanic. The program includes classroom and hands-on training on diesel engines and related mechanical systems including engines, transmissions, brakes, hydraulics, DC electrical, suspension, and air conditioning. Diesel powered pickups, welding, preventive maintenance and inspections are also included.

Introduction to Mining Occupations and Operations and the Hecla Greens Creek Mine Academy or Department approval is recommended. Minimum grade of C or better 2.00 is required in all (each) of the classes to obtain the Mine Mechanic O.E.
