As automation, artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics improve, it may be increasingly tempting to employ automatic means to accomplish industry goals. The degree to which a task is automated is referred to as levels of automation (LOA). Below is an overview of the 10 different LOA.

 

If you’re considering a career in automation, you must already know that you’ll be working on a wide range of control systems, from simple fuses and motors to sophisticated electronic computer interface boards, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), robotics and much more. Our Automation Technician program covers the content of Electromechanical systems, PLCs, Robotics, Automation controls and the core principles and operations of an automated system.

If you are a first-time online learner, taking an online course or even considering one you may find that they can present some unique challenges. Without a plan for managing these challenges, your performance could suffer. Here are 5 tips to help you succeed in an online class.

Covid19 has brought with it a number of changes, with social distancing and work-from-home measures becoming common.  At GBCTechTraining, these changes mean that while our online programs are still available, George Brown College has closed its physical buildings to most staff and students and we are working remotely.  Due to this closure we are currently unable to mail out Certificates; but not to worry, you are now able to access your Certificate as an online eCertificate.  

The beginning of this, the third decade of the new millennium, may have started out rather bleak, but it does not mean that things like innovation or advances in technology have come to a grinding halt. In fact, quite the opposite is true. As we find ourselves in the midst of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (more commonly referred to as Industry 4.0) the adoption of automated machinery in the manufacturing sector shows no indication of slowing down.

Online education has brought numerous advantages to learning, such as making education more accessible, and in some ways, more interactive and engaging. However, it has also brought some unique challenges. Feelings of isolation, difficulties with self-direction as well as time management issues are common among students in online courses.

Online programs can be a challenge for students, especially when the lack of in-person interaction is paired with learning new and unfamiliar technology.

Below are 6 specific ways we can help in our online program.

As Covid-19 is brought under control, many people are anxious to get back to work.  While some may be able to work from home, it is important that safety measures are in place for those who must physically return to their workplaces.  The manufacturing industry must have measures in place to prevent the potential spread of the virus as technicians return to warehouses, factories, and other workplaces.  Let us review a few new technologies and procedural changes employers can implement to ensure that their spaces are safe for returning technicians and visi
