We add to our course selection often so check back regularly to see what is new.
The below classes generally run between August and May
Our current courses include:
Become familiar with the theory and principles of electricity, including the concepts of voltage, current, resistance, power, energy calculation, Ohm's Law and the relationship of these elements. You will also learn about direct current, receive an introduction to alternating current and its affect in circuits containing inductors, capacitors, transformers and relays. Emphasis in this course in on theory.
This course deals with commercial applications of electricity found in mulit-family dwellings, small stores and businesses. Included in this program are theory and practice in blueprint reading, methods of mounting hardware, transformer connections, motor feeders, and lighting.
Industrial Automation (PLCs and Robotics)
Industrial automation is the use of control systems including computers (programmable logic controllers - PLCs), robots and related information technologies to manufacture products. This course provides in-depth knowledge and skills on both the PLC and robot components of industrial manufacturing processes. Practical experience is obtained working with PLC and robotic systems in the classroom. Web based lessons and simulations teach theoretical knowledge online.
The PLC component covers electrical safety and the installation, programming, troubleshooting and maintenance of PLC hardware and software. The information presented will enable you to effectively install, program and troubleshoot PLC hardware and input/output (I/O) curcuits. PLC topics include Machine and Process Control, PLC Components, Hardware Configurations, Power Supplies, Discrete I/O Modules, Analog I/O Modules, PLC Programming, Processor Operations, Troubleshooting, Diagnostics and Commissioning.
The robot component covers human and industrial robot safety and the installation, programming, operation, troubleshooting and maintenance of a robot. Robot topics include Fundamentals of Robotic Systems, Robot Components, Applications of Robots, Sensors, Power Systems, Controllers, End Effectors and Tooling. you will obtain practical experience working with an ABB IRB-120 industrial robot.
This in-depth program provides knowledge and skills on electrical safety, control circuits, AC motors, ladder logic and troubleshooting. The information presented will enable you to construct and troubleshoot electrical control circuits. More than 300 topics are covered in 10 units of study. Thirty job activities provide "hands-on" experience using "real-world" industrial electrical hardware.
Theory instruction includes electrical control components and control circuit operation. Topics include: Electrical Safety, Control Transformers, Overcurrent Protection, Pushbutton Stations, Limit Switches, Solenoids, Relays, Timers and Counters, Three Phase Motors, Contactors and Motor Starters, Ladder Logic and Electrical Drawings, and Jogging and Plugging.
