facilities maintenance Overview
In response to requests from industry partners, San Jose City developed this program to prepare participants to monitor, maintain and troubleshoot mechanical and electrical equipment in facilities ranging from operating rooms, hotels, commercial buildings, to clean rooms. This is a high skill, high wage, and high demand occupational area, and we encourage women and minority students to apply. As with all of our programs, financial aid is available for eligible students.
The Facilities Maintenance Technology Program at San Jose City College provides students with skills to begin or advance in a career in facilities maintenance.
