Mechatronics Servicing NCII is a short course focused on installing and configuring different mechatronic devices such as thermostats, photocopiers, digital systems and industrial machines among others, including lock and anti-lock mechanisms. The certification also tackles maintaining computer control equipment and systems, terminating/connecting electrical/electronic circuits, and checking and configuring mechatronic equipment.
The Mechatronics Servicing certifications I – IV are jointly administered and granted by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority and the Mechatronics and Robotics Society of the Philippines (MRSP).
The said certifications open careers in production, manufacturing and automation in commercial and industrial development.
MRSP offers preparatory seminars covering the following topics: sensors, relay logics, diagrams on basic control design, electro-pneumatics and hardware wiring, pneumatics, and PLC hardware and wiring.
MRSP is committed to the advancement of mechatronics and robotics technology in the Philippines through research and development innovations. The society ensures the integration of mechanical, electrical, electronics, and computing technology skills and knowledge in the production of automated and intelligent machines and equipment. MRSP activities facilitate sharing of expertise, information, and experience with students and professionals.
