You will undergo one on one practical training with industry experienced, qualified Instrument and Electrical Professional Trainers. This will be in the following technologies on a purpose-built instrumentation skid/ facilities and control system with HART compliant field instruments and Siemens and Allen Bradley PLC Control System:

  • Introduction to programmable controllers
  • Controller hardware (PS, CPU, signal modules)
  • Memory concepts, organisation and addressing
  • Basic data types (Boolean, Integer, Real, String)
  • Program digital and analog PLC.
  • Ladder Diagram (LD) programming languages
  • Structured programming with function blocks
  • Program elements include comparator, move, timer, counter, jump, shift registers and increment/decrement functions
  • Functional blocks Scaling and Un-scaling blocks
  • Integration of HMI touchpanel devices
  • Using simulation tools for testing programs
  • Download, test and fault find PLC program on PLC hardware

Blended delivery of 30% theory and 70% practical training with what you are likely to see in a typical modern industrial environment with PLC control system.

  • Intensive hands-on installation, fault finding and commissioning experience
  • Quality time with PMV trainers to review the theory and discuss feedback on theory assessment
  • Practical exercises as part of the competency-based training outcome.
