Certificate Program & Training
The Electronics Technician Certificate program can help you acquire the knowledge and skills you need to succeed in the field of high tech manufacturing.
About the 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 24 modules, each containing text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, online resources, over 450 pre-built lab projects and practice exams.
Electronic Simulation software
One of the main learning features of the ET program is the complete integration of laboratory experiments and projects
within the presentation of the electronics 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.
CircuitLogix is used to provide circuit examples and an experimental simulation environment for students to build and test their own circuit.
The simluation tool CircuitLogix is both powerful and easy to use. In this example of circuit simulation we are using a series RLC circuit to demonstrate the rate of change of a controlled variable.
We use simulation software that converts your computer into a virtual electronics lab
3DLab Circuit Simulation
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 Circuit Simulation
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.
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.
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.
