Complete this comprehensive robotics technician training program using an interactive learning package. The Robotics Technician certificate program at George Brown College introduces the concepts of industrial robots and explains how they can be used in a plant or manufacturing system. The primary focus of the program is on automated manufacturing processes, as well as the role of robots and their support equipment. Receive instruction through both theoretical concepts and laboratory exercises using a combination of multimedia learning resources and a robotics simulation software package. Learn to program, test and debug robot programs. Areas of study include motion programming, palletizing, conveyor systems, computer networking, automated sorting systems, vision and tactile sensors and computer integration.This Distance Education program provides you with an easy-to-use, home-study approach that requires only a home computer and an internet connection; you do not need expensive books or lab equipment. The robotics simulation software converts your computer into a fully functioning industrial robot, complete with a three-dimensional learning environment that includes manufacturing plants and control systems.You may enroll in the program at any time (open enrolment). Complete each module in your own time. Typical completion time is 28 weeks of part-time study, but there are no time limits (and previous electronics and/or robotics/automation experience and education may reduce that time significantly). An electronics background is helpful but not essential.
