Course Description

The Automation Technician Certificate was developed to meet industry's growing demand for workers with a broad set of skills and knowledge in industrial automation, including digital electronics, process control, SCADA systems, and programming of Programmable Logic Controllers and robotics. The program examines applications and examples of automated manufacturing systems including both the theory and function of digital and industrial electronics, hydraulics and pneumatics, robotics systems, programming languages and alarm management. This online program is delivered to students using a combination of theory and laboratory simulations using LogixSim, a simulation software suite that includes electronics, PLC and robotics simulation.

The learning materials, provided in a web-based downloadable file format, includes 18 modules of interactive curriculum using text, 2D and 3D animations, photos, audio clips and interactive lab simulations. Interactive exercises, practice exams and online support prepare you for computer-based final exams. The flexible computer-based modules are designed to fit into your schedule, not ours, so you can work at your own pace to complete the program. The average completion time of the 18 training modules is 32 weeks, but there are no time limits.

One of the main features of the Automation Technician program is the integration of theory with laboratory projects. Students who enrol in the program receive a licensed copy of LogixSim, which includes both 2D and 3D simulation software and features CircuitLogixPro, RoboLogix, PLCLogix 5000, and 3DLab simulation products.

LogixSim is a suite of software products that provides “real world” laboratory simulation of electricity, electronics, robotics, and programmable logic controllers. It combines four simulators in one, and allows for the design, testing, and debugging of control devices and automated equipment as well as circuit schematics and systems. From the simplest control circuits to the most complex, LogixSim has the versatility to suit almost any requirement for real-world simulation.

Continuous Enrollment - Enroll at https://miracosta-gbc.com any time that's convenient to you and work at your own pace. Because of the course's flexible delivery format, students can enroll in the program at any time during the year and complete the home study training on your own terms. We provide you with the tutorial and technical support but leave the scheduling of studying and completion time up to you. The average completion time for the Automation Technician Certificate is 32 weeks of part-time study, however previous work experience, education and time spent per week may reduce that time significantly.
