Programmable Logic Controller Certificate

Northern Alberta Institute of Technology

Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) have been an important part of industrial automation since the 1990s. 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.

Program Model
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.
