Who should attend?
Manfacturing Engineers, Industrial Engineers, Plant Operations Managers, Maintenance Personnel or other personnel involved in planning, design and setup of manufacturing facilities and personnel who encounter control systems in their course of daily functions. It will also benefit those who might be programming, installing equipment, maintaining equipment, purchasing or implementing cost reduction and automation programs, or maintaining and troubleshooting PLC based equipment. Finally, this class will benefit the home user or tinkerer trying to implement their own systems.
What are the Benefits?
Plenty of Hands-ON! There is NO BETTER WAY to learn PLC programming than to dig in and start programming! From DAY ONE you will be learning how to configure, specify, program and troubleshoot a REAL PLC control system! Each work station has an actual PLC complete with functional Inputs and Outputs. The instructor, Doug Bell, draws on his diverse background to make the programming examples reflect REAL-WORLD situations in such a manner that WILL keep you interested throughout the entire course. At the end of the course you’ll have a library of code to take home and use to implement in your future projects.
