The Advanced Technologies and Robotics Program prepares students for entry-level employment in high-demand industry occupations. Numerous multi-craft technical skills, including Industrial Electrical and Mechanical, Programmable Logic Controls, Fluid Power, Robotic Programming, CNC Programming, and Welding disciplines are taught using a largely hands-on approach to skill development.
New this year is the RAMTEC Lab, supported through a state-wide grant. The RAMTEC Lab at the Warren County Career Center is one of just 10 advanced manufacturing training centers of their type in Ohio. This training center for area manufacturers and employees ensures that Ohio’s workforce remains on the cutting edge. Students train on Fanuc, Motoman, and other equipment. This lab is an extension of the existing WCCC high school Advanced Technologies & Robotics program, the Adult Education Electromechanical PLC program and will be used for those students as well as for customized training for industry.
Students will learn a variety of skills needed in industrial troubleshooting and maintenance of complex automation equipment and components used in energy processing, consumer product production, and the construction of high-tech machinery and durable goods.

Occupations which require technical disciplines taught in the Advanced Technologies and Robotics Program are among the highest demand occupations in Ohio. Typically, an associate’s degree or technical training is required for advancement in the field. Electrical and electronics engineering technicians help engineers design and develop computers, communications equipment, medical monitoring devices, navigational equipment, and other electrical and electronic equipment. They often work in product evaluation and testing, using measuring and diagnostic devices to adjust, test, and repair equipment. They work primarily in manufacturing settings, research and development laboratories, and the utilities industry. The median annual wage for electrical and electronics engineering technicians was $57,850 in May 2012. Electro-mechanical technicians combine knowledge of mechanical technology with knowledge of electrical and electronic circuits. They install, troubleshoot, repair, and upgrade electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems, such as robotic assembly machines. They work primarily in manufacturing, engineering services, and research and development. The median annual wage for electro-mechanical technicians was $51,820 in May 2012, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
