Overview

A program designed for individuals who will install, program, maintain, or troubleshoot Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) in an industrial setting. Students gain a working knowledge of electrical ladder logic and the basis of PLC programming. Students learn the fundamentals of PLCs including processor configuration, Digital Input and Output (I/O) wiring, digital & analog concepts, and PLC program instructions. The advanced PLC class provides students with advanced programming instructions, remote I/O, introduction to advanced troubleshooting. This program focuses on the Allen Bradley SLC – 500 & Compact Logic PLCs, Rockwell Software (RS Logic 500 & 5000), and Siemens processors and programming.
