Ralph Young

PLC Technician Graduate

Ralph Young is the Plant Manager at Wyman’s, a major grower and processor of wild blueberries. When the new blueberry packing line was installed Ralph enrolled in the PLC Technician Certificate program at GBC. He felt it ‘would help him learn their new system, minimize downtime and improve efficiencies.’ 

Since completing the PLC program Ralph has re-programmed fillers, replaced modules and boards, re-wired carton metal detectors and designed small PLCs within the automated system. In addition he is better able to troubleshoot and oversee the Electricians, PLC Technicians and contractors.

‘I particularly enjoyed working on the modules covering the overview of PLCs, Input/Output System and Ladder Logic.’ Meet Our Graduates
