Motlow ARTC Partners with Southern Controls to enhance Training Opportunities

Motlow’s Automation & Robotics Training Center (ARTC) is partnering with Southern Controls, Inc., to support, enhance, and grow training opportunities in programmable logic controllers (PLC) and other automation equipment.

The three-year agreement, signed in September at the ARTC in McMinnville, allows Southern Controls, an authorized distributor for Omron Automation Americas, to conduct training at the ARTC to provide an essential industrial controls skill set for an operator, multi-craft technician, or other skilled employee resulting in a certificate from Southern Controls, Motlow, Omron, or any combination of the three. In addition, Motlow and Southern Controls will seek to obtain a globally recognized certification from Omron.

Motlow’s ARTC was the first training facility of its type in Tennessee to offer training on the three leading equipment manufacturers; ABB, FANIC, and Yaskawa Motoman. The Center has won multiple awards for both its design and its training capabilities. The Community Colleges of Appalachia presented the ARTC with its Workforce Development Innovation Award in June. The graphical enrichment of the facility won a gold medal from the Tennessee Colleges Public Relations Association in July. Visit RoboticsTraining.com or contact Larry Flatt at lflatt@mscc.edu.
