I want to become a PLC programmer INTRO level - TIA Portal LAD programming course
This video training course will introduce you step-by-step to the most essential secrets of programming the Siemens S7-1200 controller. With this course you will learn to program as experienced automation engineers do. Ownership of the equipment IS NOT ENOUGH!!!
The training course is designed to give an introduction to the complete basics. The course is aimed at people who have not yet had contact with a PLC
The training focuses on Siemens' most popular controller of the SIMATIC family, the S7-1200, which has been adapted for small and medium-sized applications.
In this course all topics are discussed based on the ladder language i.e. LAD
The training focuses on the most popular controller of the Siemens SIMATIC family, the S7-1200, which has been adapted for small and medium-sized applications as well as for most large applications. The combination of the S7-1200 controller already with its new update and the latest development tool has contributed to the creation of an extremely powerful automation system that offers developers many advantages and facilitates their work.
In this video course, I give you my skills with experience, because I know all these issues that beginner programmers face. In a few days, you can learn all that it took me several years to learn.

Frequently asked questions
Will I receive a confirmation after my purchase?
Yes, you receive an email. Sometimes emails end up in SPAM or other folders. Please check your mailbox carefully.
Is there a difference between the media on which the course can be ordered?
No. The material is the same regardless of the type of storage medium. At the time of purchase, you decide which type of data carrier you choose, i.e. online, DVD or USB.
Which PLC programming language should I choose when starting out?
If you are an electrician then LAD. If there has been any exposure to text-based languages (C, C++, C#, Java, etc) then SCL. If there has been no exposure to any programming at all then the basic course is LAD and SCL (the solution to each task is shown in two languages).
Is this course for me if I have never used a PLC?
Yes. The basic courses are just set up so that people with no exposure to Siemens PLCs can learn such skills. The student is guided step by step (as can also be seen in the course table of contents).
