What Does the PLC Technician Program Cost?

George Brown College offers you a number of easy registration options, to make it convenient and affordable for you to register in the PLC  Technician programs.


Our unique pay-as-you-learn course registration allows for easy installment-type payments. Instead of paying the initial $1,700 when you register, you pay only a fraction of this amount ($440). You will receive the entire course curriculum for the program with this registration, and will be able to complete the first module in the program including exams and access to technical and tutorial support. Once you have completed the first module, you can complete additional exams, earn grades for the other course material, and receive on-going technical or tutorial support if you pay the tuition fees for the additional modules.

With the pay-as-you-learn registration, you are under no obligation to register for any additional modules, and we have a money-back guarantee on module registration. You decide how quickly, or slowly, you would like to progress through the course material on a pay-as-you-learn basis.
