Complete all aspects of the program while studying at home using an interactive learning package and receive a PLC Technician certificate. This innovative Distance Education program combines state-of-the-art PLC simulation with one of the biggest-selling PLC books in history.
The learning materials consist of a USB with 19 courses (modules) containing text, audio, 2D and 3D animations, computer-based testing and PLCLogix 500 simulation software.
The interactive PLCLogix 500 simulation software essentially converts your computer into a virtual PLC and allows you to run, verify and debug ladder logic programs based on the Allen-Bradley RSLogix 500 format. PLCLogix 500 allows you to familiarize yourself with many different features associated with Allen-Bradley PLCs, including timers, counters, sequencers and math functions. Design ladder logic programs, perform tests and simulate the operation of real-world components, including motors, solenoid valves and a wide variety of other discrete and analog I/O devices.
You may enrol at any time during the year (open-enrolment) and complete the modules in the learning package at your own speed. Typical completion time is 32 weeks, but there are no time limits.
Ontario Secondary School Diploma (with credits at or above general level) or equivalent or mature student status.
Every credential at George Brown College delivers detailed program learning outcomes that are discipline specific and aligned with the appropriate credential level. Program learning outcomes are statements that describe the knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate by the end of their program of study.
