About the Program

The knowledge and skills taught in the Instrumentation Technology Certificate of Achievement Program were developed through a study of industry requirements for the trade, particularly with the association, Instrumentation Systems and Process Automation. Additional input was given by the advisory board, and members of local industries, mines, and government agencies.

Prerequisite: AAS or Certification in Electrical Systems Technology (or equivalency, based upon instructor approval). If students enter the program with appropriate technical skills but lack an official AAS or CA from an accredited institution, they will be required to complete one course in each of the following three areas:

  • MATH 116

  • BUS 110B or PSY 208

  • ENG 100 or ENG 101, ENG 107, ENG 108 or COM 113, as determined by placement testing.

Non-traditional credit or credit by examination may be possible. See an adviser for more information.
