Companies and industries are increasingly automating in order to remain competitive. This in turn has created a need for knowledgeable staff with expertise in installation, commissioning and performing service / maintenance on the often advanced equipment. That is why we have developed our distance education for Automation Technicians.
Apply through adult education
Apply to study with us through the adult education in your home municipality. If you are accepted, you can apply for study grants via CSN.
You can also pay for your education yourself with an installment plan. We have a try-out offer on the first course and you also get a discounted price on the entire education.
Company covers the costs of the education
Does your employer pay for your education? Here you will find application forms that you send directly to us.
The competence factory
Study with us in collaboration with the staffing company Boost. Divide the cost and have your next job ready before you finish your education.
Automation technology is a general term. It happens that you are also called control and regulation technicians. If the work is performed in a process industry, you can also be called an instrument technician. You can also be employed as a maintenance technician or as a service technician in the engineering industry.
An automation technician does not necessarily have to work in industry but can also work in e.g. property automation, sales of automation equipment, service / consulting companies in automation.
Because the tasks are varied, an automation technician needs knowledge of different types of automation, such as control technology, control technology and electronics and mechatronics, as well as computer technology and IT.
We alternate our training with theoretical and practical parts so that you are well prepared when you enter working life. Our courses include distance learning and workplace-based learning (APL). This means that you get to test your knowledge from school in a real environment and try out your future professional role.

There are 7 laboratory weeks, spread over the study period, which you must be on site in our school activities in Sundsvall for the teacher-led theoretical and practical reviews and final exams.
