In our integrated technologies course, you will learn about the industrial electrical trade with a focus on the design and development of motor control circuits, pneumatic controls and automation, as well as Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) programs and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA).
You'll learn how to write programs for PLC, how to set up and commission PLC, how to install and maintain induction motors, how to develop enter and verify programs for scada systems and how to diagnose and rectify faults in both AC and DC motor drive systems.
Please note: This training package will change in the near future and minor alterations to the course will occur. All new students will be enrolled into the new course.

There are wide employment opportunities for graduates from this course. The skills you develop will prepare you to undertake work across a wide range of activities in emerging technology. Typical job roles include:
A diverse range of industries employ graduates from this course, such as small and large enterprises involved with manufacturing, medical equipment servicing, mining, building automation, computer networking, process control or blends of these technologies.
This course is targeted at qualified electricians or apprentices currently undertaking the Certificate III in Electrotechnology Electrician.
Credits may be available for units previously completed in other courses.
To assist prospective students to determine whether a course is suitable and appropriate for the individual needs, Box Hill Institute will assess all students’ language, literacy and numeracy and digital literacy by asking you to undertake a self-assessment review prior to the enrolment.
A course advisor will discuss the outcomes of the review and make recommendations about whether the course is suitable for you, and identify additional support where required.

You must complete the following units to gain this certificate:
Some core units may be delivered concurrently with control technologies or electrotechnology units.
This unit covers the use of computer application relevant to engineering support work functions. It encompasses applying user preferences, using application menus and tools, entering and retrieve information, working with groups and transferring and printing files.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills re-quired to write, test and modify programs for programmable logic controllers (PLCs). This includes working safely, applying knowledge of control systems, program control functions, de-velop and test control programs using a range of programming language approaches developed for PLCs.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills re-quired to develop, install and test programs for supervisory control and data acquisition. This includes working safely, process analy-sis, developing database of process conditions, developing Hu-man-Machine Interface (HMI), using dedicated SCADA software packages and documenting programs.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to set up and commission programmable logic controllers. This includes selecting PLCs suitable for a given control application, determining interfacing requirements, performing installation and/or maintenance tasks, and setting up, testing and making adjustments as per specifications.
This unit covers setting up and selecting components associated with single linear pneumatic systems.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to diagnose and rectify faults in AC motor control systems. This includes working safely; applying knowledge of AC motor control systems and operating parameters to logical fault finding processes, implementing fault rectification, safety and functional testing and interpreting technical data.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to make accurate measurements using a wide range of basic engineering and scientific measuring instruments and devices
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to diagnose and rectify faults in DC motor control systems. This includes working safely; applying knowledge of DC motor control systems and operating parameters to logical fault finding processes, implementing fault rectification, safety and functional testing and interpreting technical data.
This unit of competency sets out the knowledge and skills required to set up, adjust, maintain and modify electronically controlled robotically operated complex systems.
