Since March, the GBCTechTraining team has seen a number of changes to our processes, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We have had to rethink the ways that a number of our resources are delivered, including how students access their program materials and documents.  Physical materials and documents can no longer be sent out due to the closure of GBC’s physical location and mail room—so we have had to take these materials fully digital!  Here are six ways

In our recent webinar, held August 13, 2020, our program experts covered 20 reasons to choose GBC's Automation Technician program. It included essential information about our Automation Technician program such as:

In theatre, being a Triple Threat means that you can sing, dance, and act—that you have all the skills necessary to take on any role and succeed at it.  This term can be applied to manufacturing, as well, and refer to someone who has skills in multiple disciplines, able to take on work in many departments.

Here at GBCTechTraining, we take student support very seriously.  This means keeping track of the questions both current and prospective students ask regularly, anticipate potential questions, and make answers and information accessible to all.  However, there are always questions that we may not foresee, but would love to answer!

As we continue through the Covid-19 pandemic, many changes continue to affect how we at George Brown College are operating. While physical locations at the school remain closed, we are working hard to provide our students with uninterrupted access to their academic credentials. Towards this end, GBC has introduced the ability for students to download their official academic transcripts electronically, as Official eTranscripts. Once the college has reopened, we will begin to mail physical copies again. Until then, here are the steps you can take to access your Official eTranscripts.

Here at GBCTechtraining, we are very proud of our graduates. Their stories inspire us, and we hope they will inspire you as well!

This post highlights some of our graduates' experiences and gives some insight into how our online technical certificate programs have impacted their careers and lives.  Take a look at how our graduates have found success after completing a GBCTechTraining program. 

In some ways, the phrase, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” is an adage that can be applied to the manufacturing sector, particularly when it comes to the use of Programmable Logic Controllers (or PLCs). Since the 1960’s, PLCs have been used to automate manufacturing processes – and while the PLCs of today dwarf the capabilities from those in operation sixty years ago, many believe that as far as process management is concerned, there is no better solution than a Programmable Logic Controller.

Covid-19 has made it difficult for even the most social among us to build connections.  Here are a few tips to help technical professionals build and maintain their connections online, and prepare themselves for the post-pandemic world.
