Mobile Maintenance Certificate

Curriculum CE.MOM.CERT (C383A)

The Mobile Maintenance Certificate provides both lecture and hands-on training for facility engineers conducting mobile maintenance at satellite locations in open-air environments. In many instances, the value of real estate or the desire to place equipment out of sight leads companies to place an array of HVAC equipment on the roof. This rooftop equipment presents facility engineers with unique challenges, primarily related to weather and access. Local 399 Educational Training Fund participants will become familiar with the design and operations of rooftop HVAC facilities in order to address risk tolerance, reliability, maintainability, and predictive maintenance.

They will also acquire the necessary skills for employment in jobs requiring multiple maintenance competencies. These competencies will allow graduates to obtain highly skilled maintenance positions in a variety of industries.

Upon successful completion of the program, the graduate will:

  • Maintain and repair systems and functions associated with externally mounted HVAC equipment;
  • Troubleshoot and provide predictive as well as preventative maintenance of rooftop equipment; and
  • Communicate effectively, not only using the terminology appropriate to this trade, but the skills acquired in the other non-technical coursework.

Graduates of the program may seek employment as a facilities engineer, operating engineer, chief engineer, maintenance foreman, or as a building maintenance supervisor working in settings involving complex systems.
