What do you get when you enrol on a PLC programming course?

When you decide to attend your first PLC training course, you may be worried that you will be saddled with complicated knowledge, and in addition given in an indigestible way. Nothing could be further from the truth! This course is designed to familiarise you with the basics of PLC programming. You will receive carefully selected teaching aids:

More than 25 hours of HD videos - you can watch the videos unlimited, consolidating your knowledge or looking for an independent solution to a problem;
Projects in the TIA Portal environment, performed during the course - you will become familiar with the full functionality of the TIA Portal platform and gain a large dose of solid knowledge of Siemens PLC modules

PLC programming - from A to Z basic level. Siemens PLC programming course - TIA Portal software

One of the fastest controllers for automation - that's what your lecturers said about the Siemens Simatic S7-1500 PLC, right? Indeed, this CPU is distinguished by its extremely fast CPU response (less than 1 ns), but it also significantly increases the efficiency of the overall system thanks to its powerful bus and Profinet interface. The S7-1500 controller is the ideal choice for medium to complex projects where flexibility counts. It can be used in virtually any industry that relies on automation.

Our PLC course will allow you to master the basics of programming Siemens controllers, even if you have not dealt with them before. With us, you'll gain practical knowledge that you'll use in your work every day. If you have a technical background and dream of working as an automation technician, but don't know how to get started, you've come to the right place! After our Simatic PLC programming course, you will surprise your employer with your knowledge and out-of-the-box approach.

What is the Siemens Simatic PLC programming course about?

Our PLC programming course is designed to explain everything to you from the very beginning to intermediate level. The topics we cover during the course will be useful in any profession where you will come into contact with industrial programming. If you want to supervise work in a factory - knowing how to program Siemens Simatic PLCs will help you to better understand the relationships that occur between successive devices and you will learn how to design them safely.

This PLC training course focuses on Siemens' latest controller, the Simatic S7-1500, which, when combined with TIA Portal software, creates a highly efficient programming environment. Although the Siemens Simatic S7-1500 software is currently available in up to five languages, the training aims to introduce you to the graphical programming language LAD. It is popularly known as Ladder because it resembles an electrical circuit diagram.

The course is taught using the Palletizer app, where you will be able to practice the theoretical knowledge you have acquired. You will be shown how to create an efficient machine that will stack boxes and then push them back onto the pallet, making room for the next batch of goods.

Programming Siemens Simatic S7 controllers is convenient because it does not require you to purchase any additional software or hardware. You will solve all your problems in the TIA Portal v. 15.1 environment, which is just for controlling Siemens modules. You can download it for free from the manufacturer's website and the software will remain fully functional for 21 days. This is far more than you need to complete your PLC training.

You will find that you do not need to wade through thick books written in complicated language to learn how to program PLCs in LAD. Tired of learning the theoretical basics of PLCs after which nothing stays in your head? Here we go!
