PLC

Using hands-on demonstrations in this PLC training, we frame the challenging world of automation and Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) into practical, down to earth lessons that are simple to understand. Students will learn to understand the PLC language, read and interpret PLC ladder logic, troubleshoot PLC programs, and fix the most common PLC problems on their own.  Curriculum will also cover communications between PLCs, Scada, DCS, and devices in the field.
