Electromechanical Technician Program

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate program provides flexible, skills-based training in basic electronics and electromechanical systems. It has been developed for adult learners pursuing basic technician level training through independent study, specifically students who cannot attend college full-time because of work or family commitments. The program provides a complete introduction to electronics and electromechanical systems. This program is often of interest to people who want to study electronics with an emphasis on mechanical systems, for example someone coming from a millwright background. The program covers mechanical topics outside of a typical electronics program, like industrial control devices, DC and AC motors and control circuits, transformers, analog and digital transducers, industrial process control and PLCs. It integrates the CircuitLogix and 3DLab simulators for laboratory exercises. Modules: Introduction to Electronics; Current, Voltage & Resistance; Ohm’s Law, Power & Energy; Series Circuits; Parallel Circuits; Series-Parallel Circuits; DC Measuring Instruments; Industrial Control Devices; Magnetism; DC Motors and Control Circuits; Alternating Voltage & Current; AC Measuring Instruments; Capacitance and Capacitors; Inductance and Inductors; Transformers; AC Motors and Drives; Analog and Digital Transducers; Industrial Process Control; Semiconductor Fundamentals; Transistors and Thyristors; Amplifier Circuits; Integrated Circuits; Digital Electronics; Programmable Logic Controllers.
