Course overview

Course overview

This course has been designed for existing technicians or tradespeople looking to upskill. This high-level course will give you the specialised skills and knowledge required to take on a range of manufacturing and engineering roles within Industry 4.0.

The fourth industrial revolution, also known as Industry 4.0, is affecting almost every industry worldwide. Using transformative technologies to connect the physical world with the digital world, Industry 4.0 is rapidly transforming how businesses operate. This course supports the exploration of what problems could be solved using technology and is highly beneficial to build the skills needed to equip businesses for the future.

Learn how to perform computations, analyse a simple electrical system circuit, produce and manage technical documentation, commission a cyber-physical system, troubleshoot digital control systems, and produce components using Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Computer-Aided Manufacturing (CAM) technologies. You'll also discover how to use Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems to monitor and control and industrial process, implement and problem solve a Programmable Logic Controller (PLC)-based industrial control system, and apply principles of networking technologies for manufacturing and engineering applications. 

Successful completion of this course as part of your apprenticeship will prepare you to work in Industry 4.0 as a trade-qualified technician.
