The Advanced Integrated Technology (AIT) program, which offers 3 certificate options, integrates various technologies in order to educate you with a diverse skill set as needed in today's high-tech settings.
The Biomedical Technology Systems (BTS) program is the only program of its type in Kentucky and prepares students how to repair, maintain, and manage a wide variety of both simple and complex medical devices, equipment, and systems utilized in a variety of settings including hospitals, clinics, doctor offices, and within the home environment.
100% online program with no textbooks required. All learning is done on an iPad (or other Apple approved device). Labs completed through distance learning (lab fees applied) Energy Management courses have no pre-requisites and have a bi-term (8 week) delivery. 5 national, industry-recognized certificates are embedded in the curriculum (fees for certification exams extra).
The Fire Rescue Science Technology Program prepares you for the challenges you will face as an emergency responder in the 21st Century.
The Mining Technology program focuses on the knowledge needed to succeed in the coal mining industry. Emphasis is given to the statutory rights and safety procedures in all offerings, including the self-rescuer device, transportation controls, communication controls, mining conditions, mining methods, and mining cycle.
Certified welders are among the highest paid of all the skilled trades. Welders join metals by applying intense heat from a gas or electric source to melt metal to form a permanent bond with or without the use of filler metals.

Industrial manufacturing goes high tech!
Advanced Technological Education Television
Multi-skilled technicians are a critical component in
today's manufacturing work force employers are looking
for candidates with diverse skills that can be adapted to
many industrial situations.
- Voice Over -
"We supply local industry with multi-skilled technicians."
Student #1, "Multiple 1 data 1; so it will be right there."
"This person can handle the welding, the HVAC
requirements, the machine, the industry mechanics,
the industrial electrician, the PLC program, the Robotics
program, all of these are going to have to be
encompassed in one person one employee in order for
them to compete."
"Right there you’re missing something in your address.
So double click on that."
Student #2, "I was working at an aluminum plant
and I was a high candidate for supervisor, but they
wanted our supervisors to have the skills and knowledge
to work on PLC or motor controls or change a limit switch."
Let’s change to that red switch.
Hit start button and start the circuit.
The students work installing a seal-in circuit, very much like
a relay circuit, except it's done in later logic which is for
programmable logic controllers.
Male Student, "We're going to have to branch it
around the stop switch."
Mike Deal, "How does that relate to what you learned
back in motor controls?"
Female Student, "In motor controls 1 and 2 we will wire in the
seal-in. As to here where it's done on the computer."
Motor Controls, PLCs', drive systems and things like that
these are core things you've just got to have. It's almost as
important as having a high school diploma.
Go to a plastic side.
We teach using a mechatronics trainer so the students
can see the integration of the four things that make up
mechatronics. They can see the fluid power, mechanical,
electrical, and the PLCs. How it integrates together to
produce a final product.
It let's us know it's going to pick
it up and then put the spool in there.
Jake Hildebrant, "We teach what's called a systems approach,
and what that means is we try to teach the students a system
and learn on the system and then we teach the theory
from that system."
Student #3, "It makes me very comfortable with technology
and my mechanical abilities as a whole is broad enough that I
don't have to limit myself to one specific job, and they were really
emphasize on what you really need to know as far as hands on training."
(Students working) "If I was going to give you my reverse
number six would give me forward."
Mike Deal, "When they come into the lab that's where we
challenge them to shows us that they know the content
frontwards and backwards. That's where we have problem
based scenarios that they have to be introduced to."
It's more a matter of lab coats and meters than it is wrenches and grease.
"You have control over the robot with this."
Mike Deal, "A lot of people still have the dirty hands image of
technical education and so much has changed with automation
and motion control and robotics and things that separates the
older generation technical work force from the new."
Student #2, "You're expected to be able to fix whatever the
problem is they call you and say, "We're not running we need
you to find what it is." Everybody from production, to the
maintenance management, plant manager, president, everybody
is depending on you to go in and diagnosis this problem and fix it.
