Scholastic PLC Courses : PLC Training Best Practices

PLC Education  

This is section 3 Scholastic PLC courses of the PLC Training Best Practices. The important take away here is there is a difference between PLC education and PLC training. Although most use the phrase "PLC Training" even when they are only delivering PLC education, not actual PLC training. Education is being taught theory and information and verifying short term memory with written test (Scholastic education). PLC Training in contrast is being trained to perform a task a certain way. (hopefully the best way, best practices.)

NFPA 79 2015; IEC 60204-1; IEC 61131-3:2013; ICS 21.020: 29 CFR 1910.212.
