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.

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.

Artificial intelligence (AI) has increasingly become a hot topic of conversation, no doubt as a result of our fascination with the technology. And even though the potential benefits to the human race seem limitless, there are those who caution against widespread adoption of the technology.

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).

The Internet of Things (IoT) has certainly made life easier for the end consumer. But when paired with other well-established technologies like low power smart sensors, solar power, and battery technology, it can also be a vital component to helping civil engineers detect structural problems in aging municipal and national infrastructure before a catastrophic event can occur. Solar technology is the fastest growing renewable energy source on the planet, increasing in worldwide capacity by an average of 40 per cent year-over-year.

Covid19 has brought with it a number of changes, with social distancing and work-from-home measures becoming common.  At GBCTechTraining, these changes mean that while our online programs are still available, George Brown College has closed its physical buildings to staff and students and we are working remotely.  Due to this closure we are currently unable to mail out Certificates; but not to worry, you are now able to access your Certificate as an online eCertificate.
