Setting yourself apart from the competition isn’t always easy. Now that you have completed the Automation (AT) Technician Certificate there are several ways to continue to distinguish yourself and push your career ahead. We offer a number of pathways which will allow you to continue your studies and earn another certificate in Electromechanical, Robotics or PLCs.
As a GBC Automation graduate credit for common modules will automatically be applied to these programs. So exactly what does this mean? Let’s review the program modules to understand the overlap and exemptions.
Overview of Module Exemptions with the Automation Technician Program
|Total Number of Module Exemptions from New Program||Total Number of Modules to Complete New Program||Total Cost to Complete New Program||Total Savings due to Exemptions|

Which Certificate to pursue will depend on your interests and where you feel you would benefit the most? For example do you need a deeper knowledge of Robotic systems? Or would a more comprehensive study of PLC’s further your career? To really understand PLCs you should know both methods of I/O addressing, traditional and tag-based, which are taught in the PLC and PLC Technician II programs.
