Reliable Controls® Partners with St. Lawrence College

Victoria, BC, Canada – Reliable Controls is pleased to announce a partnership with St. Lawrence College. Students in the college’s Energy Systems Engineering Technology program will be learning on Reliable Controls cutting-edge equipment for the next ten years. 

This partnership will ensure students will continue to learn on the industry-standard equipment for which Reliable Controls is recognized, and the faculty and technologists will have access to the company’s state-of-the-art training and technology upgrades to ensure students are prepared for their careers in the rapidly evolving energy system management field.

“As a college, we are committed to preparing our students for success in their future careers,” said Glenn Vollebregt, President and CEO of St. Lawrence College. “Through our partnerships... we can ensure the relevance of our students’ education in a rapidly evolving field.”

Ottawa-based Reliable Controls Authorized Dealer, REL Controls, answered the call of a St. Lawrence College faculty member in search of parts to repair existing controls, and subsequently, the idea of a full-scale partnership evolved.

Reliable Controls provided over $200,000 in equipment and committed to ensuring the lab remains up to date with future innovations. In addition, faculty and staff will have access to industry training and Reliable Controls and REL Controls personnel will provide work placement opportunities and on-campus recruiting of graduating students.

“Reliable Controls is pleased to continue its commitment to education through this, our first formal partnership with a Canadian college,” said Executive Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Thomas Zaban, P.Eng. “The need for highly skilled building controls professionals is great, and the beauty of our BACnet® open protocol software means these students will be well-equipped to work on any BACnet system they may encounter upon graduation.”
