Have you ever wondered what’s involved in keeping an industrial plant working? Complex equipment and systems are at the heart of every bustling production facility. Learn how to control and maintain these critical components in Mohawk’s Power Engineering Techniques certificate program. Power Engineering Techniques is a one year certificate course that prepares you to successfully write your Technical Standards and Safety Authority 4th Class Operating Engineering and Oil Burner Technician III examinations.
