Hands-on PLC Training


Although valuable hands on PLC training was received during the PLC training foundation, we recommend experience on at least two of the major PLC brands. We recommend Allen Bradley/Rockwell (US leader) and Siemens (UK leader). If you already know the brand you will be working with, you will want to add that to your hands on PLC training list. Although there are 5 standard programming languages use among most major brands, each PLC brand’s software have their own idiosyncrasies, that need to be learned before working with live and expensive and dangerous machinery.

For this phase of the training, PLC trainers that use real PLCs are great choice. The two recommended below come with lesson to give you experience uploading, downloading and modifying existing PLC programs on each PLC brand (AB PLC and Siemens PLC in this case).

We have color coded this entire site based on Occupational titles to help you decide what PLC training is most needed based on your relative occupation.
