Automated Logic

Factory Certified Live Instructor eLearning

 

 

In 2020, Sunbelt Controls developed a method for remotely deploying the same quality of Factory Certified Training Classes that our customers have grown to love: Live Instructor-led eLearning in a virtual Zoom classroom environment. This method of training allows for group exercises and one-on-one instruction with the use of breakout rooms. The instructor is able to see the work that students do remotely as if he was in the room with them enabling real-time feedback.

Students connect securely to a fully outfitted computer and training case with modules and components that are dedicated to their training session. The learning experience is comparable to in-person sessions without the added cost of travel.

 

 

Please see our virtual classroom schedule below for all eLearning classes.

Sunbelt Controls is proud to be a part of Automated Logic’s Partners in Training program. Our instructors are Factory Certified at the highest Gold level. Our Gold level classrooms are required to meet the same standard as ALC World Headquarters. We have been affiliated with the ALC training department since 2007.

As an owner/operator you have invested in your WebCTRL system, now invest in your employees. Students can earn a certificate for each training class and learn best practices to tune your system for maximum efficiency. The most balanced, comprehensive training will come by following the Owner Operator Certification path found on pages 6 & 7 of the ALC Course Catalog

Our program offers 8 hands-on, task-based Factory Certified training courses. We utilize Automated Logic Corporations’ factory-approved software, hardware, and materials. Training locations include: San Francisco (Pleasanton), Sacramento, Los Angeles (Azusa), San Diego and Las Vegas. We can also teach the same factory certified classes at your facility.
