ELECTRONICS TECHNICIAN

Electronics Technician Certificate Program

The Electronics Technician Certificate program presents a complete in-depth introduction to the fundamentals of applied electronics. It covers the basics, from series circuits through to digital electronics. This program provides hundreds of practical laboratory experiments using two innovative simulation environments, (3DLab and CircuitLogix), to demonstrate theory and showcase examples from industrial and manufacturing electronics.

The Electronics Technician Certificate allows students to ‘learn-at-your-own-pace’, studying, experimenting and taking final exams when it fits into their busy schedule. The program is presented in 23 modules, each containing text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, online resources, over 450 pre-built lab projects and practice exams.

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

3DLab is used mainly in the introductory level modules, providing a realistic lab simulation environment for DC circuit experiments. It provides an easy to use and easy to understand introduction to building, testing and visualizing basic electronics circuit.  3D Lab also features a ‘Lab Quiz’ function that allows a student to develop and test their troubleshooting skills.

CircuitLogix uses two dimensional, schematic circuit representation in a simulation environment to build, test and troubleshoot more advanced circuits. CircuitLogix Pro allows users to simulate any combination of analog and digital components. Along with the expanded simulation capability, this professional version features a large device library of over 4,000 devices, easy SPICE model import, and no limit on the number of pins for an individual circuit.

The CircuitLogix Pro simulator includes;
• Highly intuitive graphic user interface
• Versatile circuit node naming
• Automatic point-to-point wiring
• Wire connectivity maintained during component moves
• Device rotation in 90 degree increments
• Undo, Redo, Duplicate and Merge circuits
• Zoom in or out 10%-1000%
• Alphanumeric pin designations; barred pins; vertical or horizontal pin orientation
• Fit-circuit-to-window feature
• Click-and-drag wire repositioning
• Multiple wires to the same device pin
• Cut and extend wires
• Right-click pop up menus for quick access to editing tools and features

Additional Online Program 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.
