Course Overview:
This workshop provides training for those whose electrical experience and job
assignment warrants attendance. The course covers PLC technology, descriptions of
PLC basic equipment, digital numbering systems, terminology, PLC functions, and
operating principles. The course also provides description of the most commonly
used PLC types of equipment in industrial applications, production facilities, gas plant
operations, and pipelines. Application information for various input and output field
devices is also given. Practical hands-on lab exercises are given in the course that
represents over 50% of the total course time. These lab exercises include the
operation of hand-held programming terminals as well as personal computers.

Designed For:
This course is recommended for those who have attended the Basic Electrical course,
or equivalent and who desire to gain an understanding of programmable logic
controllers (PLCs).

Prerequisites:
Basic Electrical Course or equivalent.
