IMPAC Program

NEW! IMPAC (Industrial Maintenance Pathways of Ashtabula County) Program Coming Spring 2018







The IMPAC program prepares students for entry-level employment in the Industrial Maintenance Field. Once enrolled in the program, students are pre-tested to locate skill caps to develop a specifically focused training plan. Training then includes instructor lead discussions, self-paced computer-based simulation projects, and hands-on troubleshooting. Students are required to pass a comprehensive final assessment on all skills. The IMPAC program provides training in Electricity, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, PLCs, Pumps, and Mechanical Drives. Supportive training also given in Math, Blueprint reading, Transition Skills, Welding and OSHA. Upon successful completion of the IMPAC program students will receive a certificate of completion issued by the Ashtabula County Technical & Career Center.

The number of available seats in the program is limited. 



All modules may be taken individually. Call for Pricing.


AC/DC Electrical- Teaches fundamentals of AC/DC Electrical systems used for power and control in Industrial, Commercial, Agricultural, and Residential applications using virtual training technology. Students learn industry-relevant skills included in subject areas such as Basic Electrical Circuits, Electrical measurement, Circuit Analysis, Inductance and Capacitance, Combination Circuits, and Transformers.

Hydraulics I & II -Takes learners through key topics and skills in Hydraulic power & Safety, Hydraulic circuits, hydraulic schematics, the principles of hydraulic pressure and flow, and hydraulic speed control circuits. It covers pumps, fluid friction, how to connect hydraulic circuits, hydraulic cylinders and valves and a wide array of applications.

Pneumatics - Introduces pneumatic power and takes learners through key topics and skills in pneumatic power & safety, pneumatic circuits, pneumatic schematics, the principles of pneumatic pressure and flow, and pneumatic speed control circuits. It covers pressure regulation, air filtration, how to connect pneumatic circuits, pneumatic cylinders, valves, and actuators, a wide array of pneumatic applications, pressure and cylinder force, pneumatic leverage, pressure and volume, and air flow resistance.

PLC – Siemens - Teaches modern PLC systems, troubleshooting, HMI panels, networking, and basic to Advanced Command Program.

Electric Motor Control –  Learners gain understanding of the operation, installation, design, and troubleshooting of AC electric motor control circuits for many common applications. Develops skills in interpreting schematics, system design, motor start / stop circuits, motor sequence control, reversing motor control, and motor jogging.

Electrical Machines -  Introduces electrical circuits and works through many industry tasks in Electrical Systems including DC Series Motors, DC Shunt and Compound Motors, Motor Speed and Torque, Motor Performance, Split-Phase AC Motors, Capacitor-Start AC Motors, Permanent-Capacitor and Two-Capacitor Motors, and Three-Phase AC Induction Motors.

Relay Control -  Introduces the functions of relay logic control circuits used in industrial, commercial and residential applications. Describing functions and application of functions covered in control logic include logic elements such as AND, OR, NOT, NOR, and NAND. Ladder Diagrams are explained and learners connect, operate, and design a ladder diagram using one or more logic elements.
