Programmable Logic Controllers Certificate - Online

Registrations for Online courses accepted starting 9/1/17 through 12/21/17.

The Programmable Logic Controllers program will provide the basic technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with electrical control systems typically found in an industrial environment. The program investigates the operation of various control systems including both discrete and analog control devices. Emphasis is placed on the use and programming of PLCs in a complex industrial control system.

This highly innovative distance education program combines state-of-the-art PLC simulation with interactive multimedia curriculum. The program content is delivered on CD-ROM and is supported through the Virtual Campus which provides online testing, technical and tutorial support.  Technical and tutorial support is provided via e-mail and telephone.

The program is designed to allow students to complete all aspects of the program and receive a PLC Technician certificate while studying at home using a highly interactive learning package. The learning materials consist of a CD-ROM with 19 modules containing:

  • Text
  • Audio
  • Animations
  • Computer-Based Testing
  • PLC simulation software
