Hi, Iâ€™m Matt Steel. Do you like to tinker, take things apart and put them back together just to see if you can? Are you fascinated with how things work? Are you a problem solver? Self-motivated? Do you like challenges? This is exactly what the IAMT program is about and encompasses mechanical, electrical, fluid power and automation. I have been in this industry since 1994, and have been instructing at the OWATC since 2000. I also have a U.S. Department of Labor, Bureau of Apprenticeships & Training Certificate as an Industrial Maintenance Mechanic. I would enjoy the chance to discuss Industrial Automated Maintenance with you.
