Facilities Maintenance

Facilities Maintenance

In response to requests from industry partners, San Jose City developed this program to prepare participants to monitor, maintain and troubleshoot mechanical and electrical equipment in facilities ranging from operating rooms, hotels, commercial buildings, to clean rooms. This is a high skill, high wage, and high demand occupational area, and we encourage women and minority students to apply. As with all of our programs, financial aid is available for eligible students.

The Facilities Maintenance Technology Program at San Jose City College
provides students with skills to begin or advance in a career in facilities
maintenance. It was designed by an advisory committee to meet industry
requirements. Students will learn the skills and concepts necessary to install, maintain and repair control, piping, and mechanical systems in large medical, and industrial buildings. Students will also learn trouble
shooting skills, problem solving methods and electrical concepts. Continuous techniques and effective written, verbal, and electronic
communication skills will be stressed across the curriculum. Classes are
designed in lecture and lecture/lab format to give students a solid foundation general maintenance skills including HVAC/R. Print reading and skills will be emphasized.
