Programmable Logic Controller Certificate
Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have been an important part of industrial automation since the 1990’s. Today, PLCs are widely used in many sectors including manufacturing, agriculture, forestry, resources and others. There is a great demand for workers in the market who are technically trained to build, program, integrate, maintain and operate PLCs. This has led to an increasing need to train industry workers on PLCs.
In order to meet industry’s growing needs, the NAIT Productivity Enhancement Services Centre has developed a Programmable Logic Controller certificate program that will enable participants to help local organizations become globally competitive.
The core program consists of six 14-hour modules. Each module includes approximately 50% theory and 50% hands-on practice in a lab setting. The delivery of the program can be suitably customized to meet industry's specific needs.
- Post-secondary diploma or apprenticeship in a related field or equivalent.
- A working knowledge of AC/DC electric circuits.
- A basic knowledge of automated processes.
- Familiarity with personal computers.
