Courses

 

Concept of Electronics I

 

Course Description:
A study of electronics principles for students pursuing a career in an electrical trade who have no prior knowledge of electricity.  The student will gain an understanding of foundational principles including the use of Ohm’s Law to calculate values in direct current circuits.  The student will perform analysis, calculations and decisions relating to series and parallel circuits, along with analyzing and troubleshooting the circuits with common test equipment.

 

 

Concepts of Electronics II

 

Course Description: 
The second course in the study of electronics principles following Concepts of Electronics I.  The student will gain an understanding of the fundamentals of alternating current, oscilloscope training and practice, inductive and capacitive effects in series and parallel circuits, resonance and basic three phase configurations.

 

 

Pneumatics

 

Course Description: 
A study of the fundamental principles for air-driven systems intended for students pursuing a career in a mechanical trade who have no prior knowledge of pneumatics.  The student will gain an understanding of structure, function, and application of cylinders, valves, and other flow control components.  The student will perform logic operational analysis, calculations and decisions relating to pneumatics circuits, along with designing and building the pneumatic circuits with industrial-caliber components.

 

 

Mechanical Systems

 

Course Description:
A study of mechnical systems which covers the maintenance and installation of mechanical equipment, components and systems for persons with no prior training or experience.

 

 

Control Systems

 

Course Description: 
A study of industrial motor control principles...the student will gain an understanding of installation, maintenance, and repair principles, including troubleshooting and schematic interpretation.

 


Industrial Sensors

 

Course Description:
An advanced course of study designed to inform students of the theory and technical specifications of many sensing devices commonly used in industrial automation or instrumentation environments.  The student will gain a basic knowledge of sensor theory, become familiar with different uses and limitations of sensors, install different types of sensors into circuits, and learn to troubleshoot circuits that use sensors.

 

 

Mechatronics I

 

Course Description: 
A study of Mechatronics systems.  The student will become familiar with various system components and their function in Industrial Machines.  The student will gain an understanding of circuit design, installation, maintenance and repair principles including troubleshooting and schematic interpretation.

 

 

PLC I

 

Course Description: 
A study of fundamental principals of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC).  The student will become familiar with various system components and their function.  The student will gain an understanding of ladder logic, hardware installation, maintenance and repair principles including troubleshooting and ladder logic interpretation.

 

 

PLC II

 

Course Description: 
A study of advanced principals of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC).  The student will become familiar with various system components and their function.  The student will gain an understanding of ladder logic, hardware installation, maintenance and repair principles including troubleshooting and ladder logic interpretation.
