IPT's Industrial Trades Training Manual is a user friendly, spiral bound classroom size of 8 1/2" x 5 3/4", with 488 pages, 9 sections, 420 illustrations and 81 tables. The Manual version has identical contents to the Handbook, but varies in that it has comprehensive questions at the end of each section and comes with a separate answer book. This format is excellent for classroom training or self study. This book is an excellent trouble shooting guide for Millwrights and Industrial Mechanics. It is a required text in many apprenticeship and upgrading programs, and is used by technical colleges, trade unions and the maintenance departments of refineries and chemical plants, utilities, mines, and construction and maintenance companies.
