PLC NETWORKING

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

  1. PLC Networking & Wi-Fi
  2. OPC and Remote Access
  3. Programming Methods
  4. Faults and Alarms
  5. Fiber Optics
  6. Plant Automation

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 at  our Manufacturing school. Upon getting over 75% correct answers you will get a certificate of PLC Networking Technician specifying that you have completed theoretical part of the PLC Networking Course and other topics 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.
