To help meet the growing needs of our adult population, West-MEC is excited to provide educational opportunities to adults looking to further their skills and education. We offer highly-competitive industry certification opportunities to students. Take a look at our courses to see how West-MEC can help you find a faster way forward.
The Avionics/Electronics program is designed to educate students on general and aviation electronics. Adult students will be taught avionics installation, troubleshooting, system integration and avionics operating systems including GPS systems, auto pilot, communication systems and weather radar. Upon completion of the program, students may test to receive certification with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC.)
The Aviation Maintenance Technology program teaches students the maintenance and repair of aircraft mechanical systems, including turbine and reciprocating engines, aircraft finishes, sheet metal, welding, landing gears, hydraulics, propellers and much more. Upon completion of the program, students may test for Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) General, Airframe and Powerplant certification. Financial Assistance through the Veterans Affairs GI Bill educational benefits may be available to those who qualify.
The Medical Assisting program prepares students with the necessary clinical and administrative knowledge to become entry-level medical assistants. Students will receive hands-on training and will be taught how to properly administer injections, take vital signs, record EKGs, implement basic accounting procedures, and understand the fundamentals of patient documentation.
The Precision Manufacturing program is a hands-on training program that teaches the operation of Manual and Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machines. This course teaches students how to operate industrystandard machinery used to shape metals for aerospace, energy generation and robotics companies. Students will be taught how to replicate precision parts from blueprints while utilizing precise measurement tools and gauges. CAD/CAM computer applications will be among some of the skills that will be taught. Upon completion of the program, students may test to receive a certification with the National Institute of Metalworking Skills (NIMS).
The Welding Technology program focuses on incremental levels of competency based training to prepare students to enter the welding industry. This course will introduce the common welding processes used throughout many parts of the industry such as SMAW (Stick welding), GMAW (MIG welding), FCAW (Flux cored arc welding), GTAW (TIG welding) and Oxy-fuel cutting. A broad array of industry sectors such as pipeline, shipyard, power plant, buildings, bridges, and aerospace applications utilize this skill set. Upon completion of the program, students may test to receive a certification with the American Welding Society S.E.N.S.E (AWS).
