Name: Luke Boulton
Course(s): City & Guilds PLC and PLC10
Why did you choose to take these courses?
I chose to take this course because I had recently started a new role as a Control Systems Engineer and I wanted to master the basics of PLC Programming whilst gaining an Industry Respected Certificate.
Why did you choose Technique Learning Solutions?
I was looking for a course that taught about the specific brand and model of PLC that I would be using in my work. I chose to take the course at Technique because they made that specific PLC available to me for the duration of the course.
How has completing these courses helped your career?
I would say gaining a City and Guilds qualification has definitely helped me get a better job. Before doing this course, I was previously writing software for Conveyor Control Systems only. In my current role, I am not limited to just Conveyors, I get to write software for various types of Control Systems in sectors of Industry like Food & Beverage and Special Purpose Machinery. I also drive around the UK commissioning my software. Completing the courses have also made my job a lot more enjoyable as they helped me to have a better understanding of PLC’s and helped me to become more competent in using the programming software.
Could you provide an overview of the courses, Technique Learning Solutions, and the course tutor?
The course gave me a great starting point. I found it so beneficial that I went back again, at a later date, to get my EAL Level 3 Certificate in PLC’s. This course provided me with a more in-depth understanding of the fundamentals and raised my certification to Level 3. The content and exercises in both courses were really well thought out and Mark and Elliot did a great job instructing.
What advice would you give to somebody who was thinking about doing a training course with us?
If somebody was considering getting into PLC Programming I would definitely recommend taking a course with Technique as you will walk away with the basics that you need to get started.
