Students Build Outdoor Furniture in Construction Lab Outdoor Bench

Students in the Industrial Maintenance Technology (IMT) program at the Laurel County Schools Center for Innovation (CFI) have been learning about advanced manufacturing processes such as electrical motor controls and programmable logic controls while developing construction skills in the lab. Mr. Gary Karr, IMT Program Coordinator, spoke of the applied learning students are participating in through lab projects and how students enjoy creating designs and then fabricating a product.  

Students can earn industry-recognized career-ready credentials from the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) as an Electrical Technician and safety certification by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) before graduating from high school. Dr. Davis remarked that students interested in in-demand, high-wage career path in advanced manufacturing or industrial trades such as electrical, construction, welding, plumbing, or air-condition technology should look into the IMT program at the CFI.
