SSMRC automation technicians set a gold standard for the industry.

With demand for craftspeople soaring in an automation sector that needs a half-million specialists, high-value training is at a premium. 

Manufacturers and project owners need mechanics who are cross-trained in installation and maintenance of automated systems that involve a blend of mechanical, electronic, computing, and other technical skills.

SSMRC members who are trained by the Carpenters International Training Fund’s Mechatronics Program present a valuable, cost-saving asset by integrating the skills necessary for installation, programming, and final startup of automated systems.

Mechatronics Training Protocol

Mechatronics trainees put in two 58-hour weeks at the United Brotherhood of Carpenters International Training Center in Las Vegas, splitting their time between the classroom and the shop floor. 

Mechanics train using four integrated systems that include a robot, its electronic controller, and other peripherals. When they leave the ITC, the technicians receive additional hands-on training at jobsites.

For the automotive industry and other manufacturers that increasingly use robotics and other automated systems, our training delivers craftspeople who are highly skilled—and who possess the vocabulary and understand the systems in order to communicate effectively. 

Those who employ highly skilled, cross-trained SSMRC technicians can expect to gain improvements in efficiency and their bottom lines. 

That’s the gold standard.
