Shortlist

Course Overview
This course is designed for people wishing to either gain or improve their knowledge of Programmable Logic Controllers and Automation.
Our experienced staff will start from scratch and assume that you have no previous experience. As such, no prior knowledge is required.
We offer a PRACTICAL PLC training course on state of the art equipment that reflect the latest trends in industry. Over 90% of PLCs in industry are Siemens S7 or Allen Bradley PLCs. We use both!
The tutor will help you reach a level where you will be skilled enough to look at becoming a programmer, get into engineering maintenance, fault find or make amendments to programs.

During the 15 weeks of the course, you will study topics including:

• Health & Safety
• Incorporation of PLCs and applications
• Logic functions performed by PLCs
• Addressing of inputs and outputs of PLCs
• Design, create and test a program in a simulation software
• Design, create, transfer and test a program on live equipment
• Safely use I/O forces as an aid to fault finding
• Carry out fault finding on PLC-controlled systems
• Back-up programs and restore them back to PLCs
Although no formal assessments are carried out, a college certificate will be given on successful completion of the course.
