This unit provides an overview of the fundamental technical knowledge of electricity and electronics and provides a basis for further study. Concepts of electric current flow, circuit calculations, alternating current versus direct current theories, transformers and semi-conductor design and use are emphasized throughout this course.

The aim of this course is to go beyond the basic concept taught in PLC 1 and introduce more advanced topics and practical programming projects. Course is 60% hands on.

This course is covered in 30 contact hours.

The certificate in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) provides basic technical skills and knowledge necessary to work with electrical control systems typically found in an industrial environment.

This course is covered in 30 contact hours.

This course attempts to present electric motor controls in a non-technical manner. It is 75% practical and it allows students to understand the workings of contactors, relays, thermal overload protection and manual and magnetic starters.
