About the program

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate 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.

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate, like the Electronics Certificate allows the student to work and complete the computer based program at their own pace, is divided into 24 modules of interactive curriculum each containing text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, online resources, over 450 pre-built lab projects and practice exams. and integrates the CircuitLogix and 3DLab simulators for laboratory exercises. 


Simulation software

One of the main learning features of the Electromechanical Technician program is the complete integration of laboratory experiments and projects within the presentation of the electronics and electromechanical theory. This is accomplished through the introduction of circuit simulation software that simulates the behavior of electronic circuits. Students who enroll in the program receive a licensed copy of CircuitLogix Pro, a leading commercially available simulator that includes both 2D- and 3D-circuit simulation tools.

Circuit Logix

CircuitLogix is used to provide circuit examples and an experimental simulation environment for students to build and test their own circuit.

The Electromechanical Technician Certificate, like the Electronics Certificate allows the student to work and complete the computer based program at their own pace. The Electromechanical Technician program is divided into 24 modules and similar to  the Electronics Technician Certificate program, contains text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, over 450 pre-built lab projects and practice exams. Six modules extend its coverage into mechanical systems.

We use simulation software that converts your computer into a virtual electronics lab

3DLab Circuit Simulation

The 3DLab simulator is introduced early into the content of the program to help students visualize basic electronic circuits and to begin to interact directly with them, just like in a real lab. Animations of the lab simulations supplement the working labs to create a multimedia environment that is very engaging and allows students to virtually step into the laboratory and circuit they are working on.

CircuitLogix Circuit Simulation

CircuitLogix is a powerful, yet easy to use schematic capture and circuit simulation tool which includes over 4,000 device models, and eight virtual instruments. The schematic capabilities enable students to draw any electronics circuit and create a netlist for PCB design tools and autorouters. Students can easily build an analog or digital circuit schematic, attach test instruments and run the simulator to see how the circuit functions. It can perform a live, free running simulation of the digital portion of a circuit and also perform analog and mixed analog/digital simulations based on Berkeley SPICE (Simulation Program with Integrated Circuit Emphasis) and XSPICE.

Using CircuitLogix, students have the freedom to try all the ”what-if” scenarios they can imagine – changing parts or component values, then re-running the simulations to see how changes affect the circuits operations and performance.

Program costs

George Brown College offers you a number of easy registration options, to make it convenient and affordable for you to register in the Electronics Technician Certificate. You can registration for the program in full, or if you prefer, you can pay module-by-module with our pay-as-you-learn option or just purchase the curriculum material on its own.  Our pay-as-you-learn option gives you the ability to begin the program after paying a portion of the cost, and as you work your way through the program you will pay for your next module as you access it.  If you are on a budget, this can be a great way to get started on or continue your education without a huge up-front investment. 

Total cost

Payment options

Full Registration

Students register and pay for the complete program at one time. Full registration includes all tuition fees and learning material fees for the program and represents the entire program cost of $1760. It also includes the laboratory simulation software program and access to all of the learning resources for the 24 modules as well web-based supplemental resources, free tutorial and technical support and online testing.

Pay-As-You-Learn Registration

Initial registration is $380 (includes all learning materials, laboratory simulation software and Module 1) and registration for each of the remaining 23 modules is $60/module. Students may register for one or more modules at any time.

Purchase the curriculum material

Purchase the web-based curriculum material on its own, at a cost of $320, and preview it before registering into the program,

The Electronics Technician and Electromechanical programs share a common core of eighteen modules. Graduates of one program will receive credit for exemptions, for these common modules, and need only complete 6 more modules  to earn a second certificate. 

Additional resources

To further enhance the program and provide supplemental learning the Online Student Resource Center offers additional resources including alternative study content, examples, exercises, tutorial videos, student tutorial forums and the online exam center.
