Centralia College’s Industrial Trades certificate includes basic training needed for Diesel Technology, Electronics, Robotics, and Automation (ERA), Energy Technology, and Welding. It is a common first year of classes that ends with an Industrial Trades Certificate.
The common first year includes foundational classes, such as math, physics, and writing, and hands-on labs that offer basic welding, and electrical and mechanical systems. You will be introduced to all four industries and have more exposure to gears, fluids, and pumps than what was previously offered.
If you choose to continue studying to obtain your associate degree, you can decide which of the four trades to focus on during their second year. Centralia College is the only community and technical college that offers a common first year for four different industrial trades.
At the end of the first year, students with grades above a 2.0 will receive an Industrial Trades Certificate. The certificate confirms they have learned the skills and they may be hired to work as an entry-level mechanic assistant, robotics assistant, or millwright.
If they choose to go to work after completing the first year, they may add additional Industrial Trades classes to increase their skills and abilities.
