George Brown College offers Online PLC Training

September 11, 2013 - The George Brown College Centre for Continuous Learning announces the Programmable Logics (PLC) Technician II Certificate online technical training program.

The PLC Technician II Certificate is a computer-based home study program that enables students to study at their own pace, remotely from their own homes, using DVD-based curriculum and a PLC simulator to master the technology of PLC’s in the field of industrial manufacturing and production.

This certificate covers PLC programming and applications, providing targeted training for the Rockwell (Allen-Bradley) Logix 5000 PLC, using an advanced simulator called PLCLogix.

With the integration of the PLCLogix simulator, the program provides a comprehensive introduction to the functionality of advanced PLCs based on the Logix 5000 system, emulating its form, function and feel, to provide a comprehensive, “hands-on” training experience in the next generation of PLC control software.

“With the PLC Technician II program, our students will get a new competitive edge that can help open doors and expand employment opportunities. This program will increase knowledge and extend programming skills to the very popular Logix 5000-series of PLCs.” says Colin Simpson, Dean for the Center of Continuous Learning George Brown College

Start anytime enrollment, pay-as-you-learn registration, online exams and telephone/email/forum-based tutorial support provide an adaptable learning environment for people whose busy work and family lives demand a more flexible approach to training than that used in traditional full-time or part-time programs.  The average time required to complete the program is approximately 32 weeks of part-time study.

A world-leader in distance education, George Brown offers award-winning online technical training in Electronics, Electromechanical, Programmable Logic Controllers and Robotics. The Centre for Continuous Learning provides distance education- based technical training to over 14,000 registered students, located all around the world.
