Students at the Pearson Electrotechnology Centre (PEC) in Lachine, QC will now have access to a radio communication course not available at any other educational institution in Canada, thanks to a donation of high quality microwave radio equipment by Vigilant Global. A current Vigilant employee and recent PEC graduate initiated the partnership. Combined with the centre’s existing microwave equipment, the donated items will round out the curriculum taught by Mr. Abdul Durrani and Mr. Geoffrey Alleyne, experts in the field with more than 90 years of combined engineering experience at leading technology and telecommunications firms.
PEC is part of the Lester B. Pearson School Board, one of the largest English school boards in Quebec, serving approximate 21,000 youths and 8,700 continuing education students. The board manages a network of 37 elementary schools, 13 secondary schools and seven continuing education centres. PEC is known as a leader in technical training and maintains close relationships with industry standards to ensure graduates are prepared to succeed in the current technical environment.
