PLC Technician II Program Prerequisites

The academic prerequisites for students entering into the PLC Technician II program is a High School Diploma, with credits at, or above, the general level or equivalent mature student status.  

If you are 19 years or older and do not have an high school diploma, you may enrol as a mature student.

Previous practical PLC experience is helpful, but not essential. If you have little or no background in PLCs, we recommend  that you begin your studies by taking the PLC Technician program but it is not a prerequisite for PLC Technician II. PLC Technician II offers more advanced and challenging content.
