BECOME PLC TECHNICIAN

This is a certified course offered by Downtime Reduction School. It includes the following units:

  1. PLC Hardware and Software
  2. Programming Methods
  3. Programming Tools
  4. Programming PLC
  5. HMI Graphics Design
  6. SCADA Programming

Every unit has a quiz that you will need to take. You will be studying and learning all by yourself. Upon finishing the study, you will be taking a “close book” exam in our Manufacturing school. Upon getting over 75% correct answers you will get a certificate of PLC Technician specifying that you have completed theoretical part of the Process Control & Instrumentation Course and ready to take a practical course on the same subjects as listed above.

All course material consists of slide shows presentations and videos discussing all important parts of every subject.

Below are the units and topics you will be studying and learning:
