About this course

Instructor led virtual training will build on the Level ONE 4 day course. The purpose of the course is to extend, broaden and enrich the participant’s knowledge of the S7 PLCs. This will enable the participant to understand how to troubleshoot and fault-find PLC hardware and software issues in their plant using laptops and the appropriate software..

Training Approach and Method

The method of training is very similar to Level ONE course. Simulation of PLC and factory automation is as before. There is less emphasis on navigation and the basics and more on subject mattter and its relevance to development oand maintenance of the plant.

Course Objectives

Upon completion of the course the participant will
• Have worked through examples of each topic in course content.
• Will have in-depth knowledge of how the PLC software can be viewed and changed
• Will have several practical examples of higher level programming skills…..e.g. indirect addressing and how and why it’s used.
