DAVID KONKLER
Electronics Technician Graduate
David has worked at Gartech Enterprises Inc. for over
17 years in various roles. Currently, he maintains
schematic drawings, quotes projects, does minor
design work in CAD software and provides training.
David registered into the Electronics Technician
program because of its thorough coverage of the
subject matter.
”I liked that I could get a full understanding of the basics
of electrical engineering on my own schedule. Also, it
has helped in my preparation to assume the role of
Engineering Manager and given me more confidence
and understanding of projects that I've worked on.”

BRETT SEELY
PLC Technician Graduate
Brett works at Santa Rosa Systems (SRS) as an Electrical
Engineer. He designs extendable conveyor systems,
specifically by writing and modifying programs, as well
as providing backup to the primary programmer.
Brett appreciated the PLC program's flexible
format, stating, "I was able to progress at my own pace
which was especially important while working full time.
During busy times I could stop the program and during
slow times spend more time on it.”
"The simulation software was incredible," Brett
continued, "It taught me a great deal with hands on
programming which was exactly what I needed to
understand the material and learn to the best of my
ability.”

MIKE VARNEY
Robotics, Automation, & PLCII
Technician Graduate
Mike works in industrial maintenance and has
completed the Robotics, Automation and PLC
Technician II programs. "With my background in
electronics and maintenance these programs are
exactly what I need to move into a Controls position."
"The aspect of the programs I liked most was the
simulation labs as I can continue to use them
throughout my career and keep my skills up to date.
In addition I have been compensated for my broader
skill set."
"Wish this was out there 20 years ago!"

RODNEY TYSON
Electronics Technician Graduate
Rodney is a Senior Maintenance Technician with YanFeng
Global Automotive Interiors. The Electronics Technician
Certificate is “just the beginning of my training and is a
great foundation to pursue other certificates. I am now
taking the Electromechanical program and then will take
the PLC or Automation programs.
"I liked the self-paced format which made working on it
easy with my full time work schedule. [The] Resource
Center is absolutely awesome. They are kind,
understanding and willing to help with everything.
With the completion of the Electronics Certificate I will be
given a pay increase and hope to assume an engineering
role. I will also recommend George Brown College to all of
my fellow associates.”

JAMIE HARRISON
Electronics Technician Graduate
Jamie is a Musical Instrument Technician at Mountford
Music where he "repairs all kinds of musical instruments
including electronic instruments and amplifiers."
Jamie registered into the Electronics Technician
Certificate program at George Brown College because
the program was "self-paced and [because of the]
simulation software’s virtual labs: it seemed to be the
best online electronic technician program."
Jamie turned to the Resource Centre Discussion Forum
and emailed the tutors when he needed help, a process
that was "simple and very helpful."

EDWIN MENDIJA
Robotics Technician Graduate
Edwin teaches robotics at Molokai High School, and works
as the IT Manager and runs the robotics education and
competition programs at Kualapuu Elementary School.
’‘I registered into the Robotics Technician program as I
wanted to expand my knowledge of robotics and their real-
life applications. The curriculum's practical examples and
Robologix simulation software made the learning more
enjoyable.
’'My knowledge of robotics has expanded and I am now
better prepared to teach my students. I believe I can help
open up more opportunities for my students (as well as
myself) and get them ready for their careers."

EUGENE ALEXEENKO
PLCII Graduate
Eugene is an Electrical Instrumentation Control Technician
at the City of Toronto, working at a water treatment facility.
"When I first immigrated to Toronto I worked as a C++
programmer before I started working on PLC’s. I know many
companies require their employees to have PLC
programming skills and a Certificate from George Brown
College is solid proof of your skills. I would like to continue
my education towards a PEng, [and] I believe George Brown
College will help me to achieve my goal.
"I liked the PLC simulation and I feel very comfortable with its
interface. I have been able to apply my learning at work
where I create programs for different PLCs to solve process
control issues."

Deron works at the Toronto Transit Commission as a
Rail Vehicle Analyzer, where he is responsible for
maintenance and repairs of subway and rail vehicles.
He has completed the Electronics Technician
Certificate and has continued his studies at George
Brown College toward the Electronics Engineering
Technician Diploma.
“Between my hectic personal and work schedule my
life is very busy … the distance format and the fact that I
could work at my own pace were the aspects I liked
best.” He also found “the modules easy to follow and
the labs, chapter reviews, practice exam and the

I believe I can help open up more opportunities for my students (as well as myself) and get them ready for their careers."

EUGENE ALEXEENKO PLCII Graduate Eugene is an Electrical Instrumentation Control Technician at the City of Toronto, working at a water treatment facility. "When I first immigrated to Toronto I worked as a C++ programmer before I started working on PLC’s. I know many companies require their employees to have PLC programming skills and a Certificate from George Brown College is solid proof of your skills. I would like to continue my education towards a PEng, [and] I believe George Brown College will help me to achieve my goal. "I liked the PLC simulation and I feel very comfortable with its interface. I have been able to apply my learning at work where I create programs for different PLCs to solve process control issues."
