Electrical systems technicians work to install, maintain, and troubleshoot equipment and systems. Technicians can be found in many areas and occupations from working on a vehicles electronics to installing or testing new machinery in a manufacturing factory. With a high range salary in the $50,000-$60,000 annual wage this career offers stability and security and with a range of specialty tracks there is always room to expand. This advanced level training program will provide an in depth look at the high-level areas of electrical systems including equipment and controls, motors, programmable logic controllers, and energy conservation.

    Industrial industries use process control to achieve a production level of consistency, economy and safety which could not be achieved purely by manual control. With this advanced training program, we will discuss final control elements, safety, calibration, and testing procedures, and how control loops operate. Learners will explore how to work with controllers, transmit data, and the computers used in process control. Upon successful completion of this program, learners will understand the advanced areas in industrial process control and will be prepared to utilize this knowledge and skills in a vast network of industries.

    Mechanical Systems play a key role in many industries to provide the machines necessary for productivity and success. In this advanced training program, learners will gain knowledge in properties of metals including mechanical properties, troubleshooting and the importance of proper systems maintenance, and the different power transmission equipment. With this program, we will discuss different practices and principles vital to successfully working with mechanical systems such as machine shop practices and welding principles. Successfully completing this program will prepare learners to work in multiple career settings that utilize mechanical systems.

    The Building Automation Systems (BAS) Online Certificate Program provides entry level knowledge for those aspiring to become Direct Digital Controls (DDC) Technicians. It starts with the fundamentals of building controls and then works through general web based DDC networking knowledge. Next, it is on to control drawing fundamentals and a simulated Graphic User Interface (GUI) used to practice troubleshooting and DDC point identification. Finally, students are introduced to some common types of DDC programming. The last two courses of the program allow students to practice applying DDC technology to common pieces of commercial HVAC equipment. Upon successful completion of a course (a score of 75% or higher), students are registered into the next one and receive a certificate of completion.

    When compared to many other careers, chemical plant operators enjoy a number of benefits including above-average pay, job stability and mobility. With more and more countries becoming increasingly industrialized, the demand for qualified, entry-level chemical plant operators is on the rise. Chemical plant operators typically begin their careers in entry-level positions and quickly move up through the ranks - often to senior management positions. With a large percentage of the current chemical plant workforce reaching retirement age, there is a critical shortage of qualified entry-level plant operators to take their places.

    The HVACR Core Technician Program is a comprehensive online HVACR education program encompassing heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and refrigeration. In addition to the rich selection of basics courses, each technician may choose as the final course an elective that fits his/her specific interests or regional system type. This flexibility allows the student to focus on knowledge used in his/her line of work or home geographic area.

    Automation and Mechatronics engineering is a key field in the industrial and manufacturing industry. This field works to unite the fundamentals of mechanics and electronics to create more functional systems and equipment. In this level two, intermediate level program we will cover multiple topics including the basics of hydraulics and pneumatics, transformers and AC circuits, electrical safety, and power supplies as well as providing the first introduction to robotics, process measurement and control, and the principles of welding. This program is targeted at professionals with previous level one training or experience including the basics of safety, tools, and mechanics & electronics.

    Mechatronics is equal parts mechanical, electrical, and software engineering merged to design, build and operate products. Automation and Mechatronics engineering is an inter-disciplinary field that integrates mechanical systems with electronics, control, and computer technologies. This field combines mechanical system design and analysis with process control, networking, and computer software. In this level one, entry level program we will cover all the essential prerequisite skills and knowledge necessary for working in this growing industry. We have broken down the training into multiple sections that will cover all areas from the basics of reading blueprints and schematics to introductions of mechanics and electronics.

    Electrical systems technicians work under the supervision of engineers to design, build, repair, calibrate, and modify electrical machinery, components, and controls. Technicians work in a variety of areas including manufacturing, telecommunications, and transportation. This introduction to electrical systems program covers all entry level skills and knowledge including reading blueprints and schematics, safety and health, and the basics of electricity and electronics. In this program we will explore different circuits and discuss the instruments used for measuring electricity. As an introductory program you do not need any previous knowledge or experience with electrical systems to be successful.

    Industrial process control is used in many industries such as oil refining, pulp and paper manufacturing, chemical processing and power generating plants. The development of large industrial process control systems was vital in allowing the design of large high volume and complex processes, which could not be otherwise economically or safely operated. In this introduction program, learners will dive into industrial process control by exploring the different areas of process control measurement such as common methods for measuring volume, motion, force, temperature, fluid flow, and electricity, fluid flow, and temperature. This program discusses the function of basic devices for measuring and controlling different kinds of variables in process control.

    Mechanical Systems manage power to perform a task that involves force and motion. With this introductory program, learners will discover the applications of force, motion, energy, and fluid mechanics to mechanical systems and discuss ways to reduce friction and wear on the systems. Understanding how machines work is a vital in understanding any working with any type of machinery. This program will provide the basic knowledge and skills in mechanical systems management including the hand tools used, safety and health practices, lubricants and lubrications, and industrial rigging principles and practices.
