You are invited to participate in a joint effort between Industry and Garden City Community College. A three million dollar facility is available to provide a timely and effective "hands-on" approach to learning.

The hands on industrial training at Garden City Community College offers a unique opportunity to technicians and engineers (from food processing, meat packing and refrigerated warehousing, gas and oil, petro chemicals and many other 21st century applications) for training on Allen-Bradley equipment.

Offerings include Electric Motor Controls, Programmable Logic Controls, Electricity, Ammonia Refrigeration, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, and Mechanical Maintenance.

The hands-on training sessions run for five days starting on a Monday and meeting daily from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., except on Friday (unless noted otherwise).
