When I lived in Seattle, there was a JC in the north end that had a great Industrial Control Technology program, which included extensive exposure to PLCs and VFDs. It was partially funded by Boeing, so it may have been axed in budget cuts if the Lazy B stopped sending checks. Worth checking into though.

PS: Looks like the program is still there at NSCC, but they tweaked the name of it to include "sustainable energy", likely to attract more solar geek wannabes.

Also, Renton Technical College used to have a similar Industrial Electrical Maintenance program. They didn't get the same level of equipment donations as the other one, but it was still pretty good.
