Electromechanical Technician Certificate Continuous Intake USB-based Distance Email to a Friend GBC Code: T902 With our Electromechanical Technician Certificate, learn to work with machines that have complex hydraulic, pneumatic, electric, computer, programmable logic and electronic controls. Acquire the skills needed to install and test this type of equipment, advise on its maintenance and provide solutions to technical problems related to control systems in general. Note(s) Fees are $60 per module plus $285 for the USB drive (which includes all software and required materials). International applicants are charged the same fees but in US dollars (US$60 plus US$285); the posted exchange rate in effect at the time of your registration will be used to determine the final fee in Canadian dollars. Refunds will not be provided for the USB course materials.
