Do you have a PLC you can learn on?  There is no better way to improve you skills then browsing forums and trying to solve over users' problems.

C++ and SQL are good to know but if you are building on your PLC skills then you may look at learning SCADA systems and data acquisition. 

We have lots of free lessons at the following link.

Thanks for the replies guys 

But I think i have enough experience with AB PLC.

I want to learn something else that can help my future career.

I think HMI and SCADA are next step for you. first start from same brand (e.g Panelview, FactoryTalk) for easy configuration

can you be more specific? what do you see as a carrier? 

if you are interested in automation, PLC skill is a must but there is also robotics, motion control, networking, etc. technology is constantly changing and IoT is getting more wind.

if you see yourself as a business owner some day, there would be other skills that matter.
