Allegany Tech - George Brown College - Allegany College of Maryland is pleased to offer these award-winning distance education programs, allowing students the opportunity to complete course material and receive a certificate as a Technician while studying at home using an interactive learning package.
The Electronics Technician, Electromechanical Technician and PLC Technician distance programs provide an excellent, flexible way for our employees to upgrade their skills.
MasterTask - Conventional training techniques often focus on "teaching time" while allowing "learning" to become the variable. Instead of years in an apprenticeship, time on-the-job, or a grade of 80% on a final exam, MasterTask provides a "learning system" that can be easily implemented within your daily operations. It allows the individual to master the job tasks completely while requiring them to progress at a reasonable rate given the variables in your shop. The "history of machining" and other irrelevant topics are avoided.
You can enroll and pay online for ed2go and AlleganyTech-GBC options but need to call the BCTC at 814-624-4812 to pay and register for the Master Task courses.
