ONLINE ROBOTICS TRAINING PROGRAM
George Brown CollegeUpdated 01/31/2014
The online Robotics Technician Certificate program is designed for people who are interested in building their technical knowledge and skills in industrial robotics. Electricians, millwrights, PLC technicians and maintenance mechanics will benefit from the program content and experience with a fully-functioning industrial robot simulation. The program provides a basic theoretical foundation for industrial robotics. It does not emphasize any one particular robot manufacturer but rather uses examples from across the industry. The online Robotics program is designed in a self directed format which allows our students to work at their own pace, at home or in their workplace, without the need to attend college on a full or part-time basis. The curriculum contains thirteen modules of theory and lab projects. Each module contains text, animations, mini audio lectures, illustrations, review questions, pre-built lab projects and practice exams that engage and train with the concepts common to all robots. The simulation software, RoboLogix, is designed to emulate real-world robotics applications and employs the basic principles common to the vast majority of robots currently in use in the automation industry including Cartesian and SCARA designs. This sophisticated simulator helps students learn the practical side of programming industrial robots in a safe environment. It uses a teach pedant and very common instruction set that may be familiar to those who have already worked on Fanuc and Motoman systems. The 3D simulated training environments included in the program are pick and place, spray painting, conveyor/palletizing and welding applications. The powerful simulation tool provides students with engineering-level simulation and robotics equipment worth thousands of dollars. Robotics training is offered from George Brown College a fully accredited college, and world-leader in Distance Education. For information and a free Information package call 1-888-553-5333.
