PLC Training

 We are excited to announce the addition of PLC training to our curriculum thanks to a partnership with the Automation Group. 

Programmable Logic Controllers, or PLCs are small computers in industrial environments that control everything from motors to pumps to fans. Almost every production line uses PLCs whether the company produces wine, tomatoes, nuts or the packages they are sold in.

This new training here at VOLT Institute is a valuable addition to our robust, hands on maintenance mechanic program.

PLCs are an essential part of the job of a maintenance mechanic and the importance of PLCs are growing in our local manufacturing industry.  By offering this new training. We will prepare VOLT Institute students to maintain the investments of employers in automation and efficiency.
