- Textbook (available at an additional charge)
The interactive simulation software allows students to design circuitry, perform tests, design ladder logic programs and work with electronic equipment, PLC’s and robotics. The main learning features of the these programs are the complete integration of laboratory experiments and projects within the presentation of theory.
Enrol in our programs anytime and study at your own pace.
Students may enrol in the program at any time during the year. The self-paced training packages allow students to complete program on their own time. This flexibility provides students with the ability to set their own pace when proceeding through the programs. Typical completion time is two weeks per module; however students can finish much more quickly, depending on factors such as previous training, experience, education, and time allocation.
These highly innovative distance education program combines state-of-the-art lab simulation with award-winning curriculum, resulting in a great learning experience. The program content is delivered on disk and is supported through the on-line student support center which provides access to various on-line resources. Technical and tutorial support is provided via e-mail, telephone and online.
Upgrade your technical skills.
The program was designed to meet the needs of students who cannot attend college on a full-time or part-time basis because of work or family commitments. No electronics background is required and there is a minimal high school graduation prerequisite, so almost anyone can get training. Non-traditional learners are welcome in the program. More than 20 percent of students enrolled in courses are women, compared with only 2% in our traditional classroom-based electronics training programs.
The program is valuable for on-the-job training, with over 100 major companies
having sponsored employees in these courses. These companies include:
