4th year electrician in BC, Canada

My experience with PLC's is mostly with physical installation as an electrician apprentice.

My programming experience is with modicon, Rockwell micrologix, and siemens logo.

I am attracted to PLC programming as I enjoy problem solving, and designing. This skill has come naturally to me, and was my strongest point in my schooling

I have passed my inter provincial exams and am only waiting on 200 hours until I am a journeyman electrician in canada.
