Employees of Texas manufacturers interested in learning about programmable and small logic controllers now need look no further than Texas State Technical Colleges (TSTC) for training. In conjunction with donating $400,000 in training simulators to the tech schools throughout the Lone Star state, Rockwell Automation, Milwaukee, will offer courses on PLCs and SLCs at TSTC facilities.

The manufacturer has trained and certified a group of TSTC instructors who will teach the courses at the Abilene, Dalla, El Paso, Harlingen, Richmond, San Antonio, and Sweetwater campuses. Based on the success of the program, Rockwell may develop further training programs at the schools.
