Frequently asked questions
Do I need to have some basic knowledge of programming and PLC?
No. It's all in the course. We start from scratch.
Is it worth starting to learn with a Siemens PLC?
Yes. Siemens PLCs are in about 95% factories in Poland. The situation is similar in Europe. It is useful to have at least a general idea of this hardware and programming environment.
How long will I have access to the course?
Does enrolling in a course commit you to anything?
No. It is voluntary and at 100% for 0 PLN. It is possible to cancel at any time.
Is it worth learning PLC programming?
Everything nowadays lives up to automation to increase productivity and repeatability. Companies want to produce for 24 hours. You need machines and process lines to do all this. Someone has to program this, so you need PLC programmers. If you want to become a PLC programmer, this course would be a good way to start.
Why have I created a free course on PLC programming?
I think that anyone in the automation/electrical/mechanical field as well as pupils and students in these technical fields should familiarise themselves with this subject. Then you will be able to say whether this is for me. Whether I like it.
Who is this course for?
For people WITHOUT programming experience. For people who have no experience with Siemens PLCs. For all those who want to go step by step through the steps involved in the first commissioning of what is now the most popular PLC of the SIMATIC S7-1200 family.
