Automated Industrial Technology II

The Certificate of Completion (CCL) in Automated Industrial Technology II prepares students to troubleshoot, maintain and repair a variety of automated electro-mechanical, product assembly, process control, and product distribution systems that use programmable controls and other methodologies to accomplish system management. These systems include robotic, mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and electronic devices. Through this certificate, graduates will gain the skills to define, integrate, install, program, and maintain complex control systems. Includes preparation for National Institutes of Metalworking Skills (NIMS) certification exams.
