Course Description:
The Robotics Technician training program 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 all of their support equipment. Students receive both theoretical and laboratory instruction through a combination of multimedia learning resources and a robotics simulation software package to allow for the programming, testing, and debugging of robot-control programs. Areas of study include motion programming, palletizing, conveyor systems, computer networking, automated sorting systems, vision and tactile sensors and computer integration.

The program is divided into 13 modules, each consisting of about ten sections, or major topics. Typical completion time for the program is 168 hours and runs for approximately 28 weeks. The program is delivered in an asynchronous format, which allows you to start and finish modules entirely at your own pace. There are no pre-set, scheduled completion times which allows you to complete the course material at a rate that you are comfortable with.

The robot simulation software, RoboLogix, provides access to a range of industrial robots including Cartesian and SCARA designs and includes various end effectors. Students gain practical, "hands on" programming of an industrial robot through a combination of teach-pendant programming, and 3D animations displaying the robot arm movement. 3D training environments include conveyor/palletizing, pick and place, spray painting, and welding.

Course material for the program is delivered and supported by a combination of CD-ROM or USB/online resources. The interactive curriculum uses text, video, 2D and 3D animations, photos, audio clips and interactive robotics simulations. Review questions, interactive exercises, lab projects and online support prepare you for computer-based final exams which are completed online. Tutorial and technical support is provided online. Instructional materials may be purchased for an additional fee when registering. You may also register for individual modules; click the Register Here button below for individual module prices.
