Automation Technician Training

Automation Technician
Training Programme


The Online Industrial Automation Technician Programme covers 3 main areas of study: ElectroMechanical Systems, PLC’s and Robotics. 

The Automation Technician Training Programme prepares Learners to understand and implement the fundamentals of Automation within Industry where the learner gains further knowledge on the 3 key elements of Automation, namely PLC’S, DCS and Robotic systems. Industrial Process Control, Electromechanical systems and Motor Control Circuits are also covered within this Programme.








• Industry Specific Training
• On-Line Technical and Tutorial support
• Internationally recognised
• Locally accredited
• Hands-on lab experience through software simulation that simulates the behaviour of electronic circuits in a WorkPlace.




One of the main features of the Automation Technician program is the integration of theory with laboratory experiments and projects. Students who enrol in the program receive a licensed copy of LogixSim, which includes both 2D- and 3D-simulation software and features CircuitLogix, RoboLogix, PLCLogix, and 3DLab simulation products.


Logixsim Simulation

LogixSim is a suite of software products that provides “real world” laboratory simulation of electricity, electronics, robotics, and programmable logic controllers. It combines four simulators and offers unlimited possibilities for the design, testing, and debugging of control devices and automated equipment as well as circuit schematics and systems. From the simplest control circuits to the most complex, LogixSim has the versatility to suit almost any requirement for real world simulation.


3DLab is a simulated bench top, designed to closely replicate the appearance and functionality of actual electrical and electronic devices and instruments. 3DLab features a workbench and shelves containing over 30 realistic-looking devices which are interconnected to perform a wide range of DC/AC experiments and laboratory projects.


CircuitLogix is a software program that converts your computer into a fully-functioning electronics laboratory with thousands of components and devices that are easily interconnected. Circuit-Logix is a SPICEbased 2D-schematic editor, which provides simulation of analog, digital, and mixed-mode devices and circuits.


PLCLogix 5000 is a PLC simulator that emulates the operation of a RSLogix 5000 PLC. It provides users with the ability to write, edit and debug programs written using the RSLogix 5000 tagbased format. PLCLogix also features 12 “real world” 3D control application environments including batch processing, elevators, traffic lights, car washes, etc.


RoboLogix is a robotics simulation software package that is designed to emulate real-world robotics applications using a five-axis industrial robot based on the FANUC LR-series of robots. RoboLogix allows you to write, test, and de-bug robotics programs and observe the robot’s operation using a realistic looking manipulator in a 3D simulation environment.
