The George Brown College Centre for Continuous Learning is pleased to announce the launch of the Automation Technician Certificate, our newest online technical training program.

The Automation Technician program provides an introduction to industrial automation including digital electronic, process control and programming of PLCs, robotics and SCADA systems. 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, digital programming languages and alarm management.

“The Automation Technician program was developed in response to today’s requirements that technicians have a comprehensive “inter-professional” knowledge of electricity, electronics, electro-mechanics, robotic, and automation (PLCs).” says Colin Simpson, Dean, Continuous Learning, George Brown College.

The online program is delivered using a combination of theory and labs which features state-of-the-art simulation software LogixSim, a suite of software products that emulate real-world tools and systems. The LogixSim includes CircuitLogix, 3DLab, PLCLogix and RoboLogix simulation tools that can be used to design, program, install, troubleshoot industrial electronic, robotics and PLC equipment.

Start anytime enrollment, pay-as-you-learn registration, online exams and telephone/email/forum-based tutorial support provide an adaptable learning environment for people whose busy work and family lives demand a more flexible approach to training than that used in traditional full-time or part-time programs.  The average time required to complete the program is approximately 32 weeks of part-time study.
