Join Our Industrial Maintenance Training Program
Industrial maintenance does not refer to one specific trade but a combination of skills that incorporates many of the other trades. Unlike other industrial maintenance training programs, students that graduate from NCST will not only be able to demonstrate their knowledge of these skills in any work environment but also receive a two-year, specialized AST degree.
A graduate of this program will be equipped to find work in an industry where the skills they have developed are required to inspect, maintain, and service the equipment and facilities that companies rely on in day-to-day life. It can be a very rewarding environment to work in.
Typical assignments that our graduates receive in a facility maintenance position are related to these areas:
- Heating and Cooling
- Industrial Mechanics
- Alternative Energy Systems Maintenance
With the ever-increasing cost of materials and equipment it is essential for business and facilities to maintain the machines that they use on a daily basis. This means that there is a very high demand for individuals who have a broad knowledge and skills base.
At New Castle School of Trades we require our students in the industrial maintenance training program to complete a 60-week program. The courses in this program balance classroom instruction with hands-on training. Some of the courses you will be required to take include:
- Electrical Services
- Combination Welding
- Solar Power
- Wind Power Generation
- Basic Rigging & Forklift Operation

Wind and Solar Power Systems
There are many other industrial maintenance training programs out there but NCST is one of the very few that educates students on renewable energy generation systems as well. This is a surprise considering as an industry, alternative energy has become very large and important over the past decade.
This industry has helped to save both the average homeowner as well as large companies significant amounts of money and paved the way for the easy adoption of clean, renewable energy sources. The market for wind and solar power systems has increased so much over the past few years that, quality wind power training and solar power training is in high demand.
Go Green with NCST’s Renewable Energy Training Programs
Our renewable energy-training program includes two of the largest alternative energy categories. Wind power generation and solar power generation are the two areas that we will give you knowledge and experience in. Both of these fields offer outstanding career opportunities. As a trade school, NCST’s goal has always been to equip our students with the knowledge and skills to make them successful.

Start Your Solar Panel Maintenance Training Today!
As you remember from fourth grade science class, the sun uses and gives off an enormous amount of energy. Without the sun humanity would never have existed on this earth.
It is a wonder it took us so many years to consider using the suns energy as an alternative energy source. In the last decade alone residential and commercial solar power systems sales have increased substantially. As a business owner, the idea of saving yourself money after only a few years of paying off the equipment is worthwhile.
However, maintaining this equipment can be difficult if it is not handled by someone who has be given quality hands on solar power experience. That is why gaining solar power training is an extraordinarily useful skill for anyone who is looking for a career.
