Online Technical Training

Develop your qualifications for a rewarding career in technology. Earn a certificate in these areas of industrial technology:

  • Robotics Technician
  • Electronics Technician
  • Electromechanical Technician
  • PLC Technician

Each technician certificate program enriches your skills and knowledge in design, programming, installation, operation, maintenance and troubleshooting industrial electronics, robotics and PLC equipment. The self-paced distance education alternative provides you with practical know how and technical skills needed to become more employable and successful in your field. The programs also provide an alternative for students who cannot attend a traditional college environment or a full or part-time basis.

One of the main features of the programs is the complete integration of lab experiments within the presentation of theory. This is accomplished through the introduction of software that simulates the behavior of real-world tools and systems. This simulation software (LogixPro, PLC Logix, CircuitLogix or RoboLogix) converts the student’s computer into a virtual electronics lab, PLC or industrial robot.
