It’s Tuesday and you’ve been asked to work on a new program for one of the PLCs in your plant that needs to be completed by the end of the week. This is a slightly different type of PLC than you’ve worked with previously and you’re dealing with a bit of a learning curve. Thankfully, one of the friends that you’ve met in your PLC Technician program at George Brown College works at a plant that has been using this PLC model for years and has agreed to help you.

As the landscape of manufacturing changes, with plant operations becoming increasingly automated, more technically skilled workers are required to maintain your company’s competitive edge.

Many people considering our online technical programs and even registered students often comment “there is content overlap between the programs ”.  This then prompts the question “do I need to take these overlapping modules “and then “how do the exemptions affect the total cost of the program?”
First let’s review the program modules to understand the overlap and exemptions. The charts below identify the common modules in blue.

It`s never really been practical for GBC to try and provide job advising or placement services to our students because they are so very, broadly distributed. About 90% of them are spread out across North America, and the remaining 10 % are even further away; ranging from the Australian outback to the oil rigs of the North Sea. 

George Brown College offers 5 online technical training programs that are eligible for the Canada-Aberta Jobs Training Grant.

What is the Canada-Alberta Job Grant?

It is a new grant that provides training subsidies for Alberta companies to help train existing or new employees to develop new skills. 

As an employer in the manufacturing sector you understand that innovation drives industry and your business. It is becoming more difficult to find workers with the skills today’s jobs demand to match that innovation.
