Level 1 (Mechatronic System Assistant) SMSCP

The Mechatronic Systems Assistant certification is the first of three certifications in a series.
Each certification is based upon a specified, industry-driven job profile which helps an employer determine where
this person can be best placed within the organization.



A Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Assistant will function as a well-grounded machine operator in a complex system, with responsibility for efficient operation of the equipment with minimal
down-times. Normally a Siemens Certified Mechatronic Systems Assistant would carry out their work at plant assembly sites, workshops or in connections with service operation which utilize complex mechatronic systems.



Level 1 (Assistant) Certification consists of four standardized courses, designed to be integrated within a college curriculum or to be implemented as continuing education. Trainings consists of classroom instruction with additional laboratory work on a physical system , on PC- and web-based simulations, etc.
Each of the four courses has a main focus, although the “big picture” perspective is maintained throughout the program. The main foci of the four courses are:

  • Course 1: Electrical Components
  • Course 2: Mechanical Components and Electrical Drives
  • Course 3: (Electro) Pneumatic and Hydraulic Control Circuits
  • Course 4: Digital Fundamentals and PLCs
