Objectifs du programme

The Production Equipment Operation vocational training program prepares students for the trade of production equipment operator.

Operators operate industrial equipment with single or multiple functions and automated to varying degrees. Adjusting equipment, adjusting operating parameters and solving problems during production is an integral part of their work. These activities are generally performed from a workstation, through interfaces (control panels, touch screens, etc.). The operator also performs quality control during the various stages of the industrial process and minor preventive maintenance work on equipment. Eventually, the operator may be called upon to contribute to the improvement of various facets of production.

The operator operates the equipment of a production sequence, a series of equipment or multifunction equipment (performing several production operations). This trade consists mainly of operating production equipment during industrial processing or an industrial manufacturing process. Work is performed individually with a co-worker and occasionally as part of a team of operators. The work requires collaboration with other trades (industrial mechanics, electromechanics, etc.), technical staff (quality control, instrumentation and control, etc.) and other departments of the company.
