Module IV Certified Production Technician
The Certified Production Technician (CPT) course trains students in the production skills needed
to be successful in manufacturing jobs. The training is divided into four modules: Safety, Quality
Practices & Measurement, Manufacturing Processes & Production, and Maintenance Awareness.
At the completion of all four modules, students are guaranteed an interview with Jordan Lumber
and Unilin. Scholarships are available.
The Maintenance Awareness module covers the following:
• Prepare preventive maintenance and routine repair.
• Monitor indicators to ensure correct operations.
• Recognize potential maintenance issues with basic production systems including knowledge of
when to inform maintenance personnel about problems with electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic,
automation, and lubrication systems, bearings and couplings.
Students test at the end of each module. Upon successful completion of all four modules,
students are awarded the CPT certificate.
