Certificate Detail: ELECTSYSTCERT - Electrical Systems Specialist Certificate

This 177-hour program is offered through six courses covering topics in direct current, alternating current, control systems, motors, VFDs, and instrumentation. These skills-based classes are made up of lecture and lab components. Lecture components are offered online asynchronously, and lab components are completed in person asynchronously, by appointment. Though the program is offered asynchronously, students should expect to spend 10 hours per week for 17 weeks to complete the training content. By the end of this program, students will be able to: demonstrate effective electrical and shop safety including PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) use; follow safety procedures, and lock-out tag-out protocol; measure AC & DC voltages and currents; explain fundamental electrical principles; create and analyze; construct industrial controls systems that integrate a VFD, HMI, and motors with a PLC using Allen Bradley Studio 5000 and Factory Talk programs; interpret documents and prints describing various electronic circuits. Students that complete this 6-course program will earn a certificate as an Electrical System Specialist.
