Course description

PLC Programming Workshop: From Introduction to Application

Available in both virtual and in-person, instructor-led formats, this PLC Programming Workshop: From Introduction to Application combines our introductory PLC course with our programming and applications course to provide the student a complete PLC education from a basic introduction on how PLCs work to providing them the knowledge, confidence and ability to modify or create their own PLC programs.

The training in this class is practical and geared to cover most of the PLC situations students will run across in the field. The training presented is not manufacturer specific but uses LogixPro 500 simulators so that students can explore the variety of PLC software platforms that they will encounter in their jobs.

Course delivery details

If live instruction is not an option, virtual PLC programming training teaches employees all the concepts and processes taught in live classrooms. Employees receive face-to-face video instruction from experienced instructors, supported by virtual classroom interaction, training exercises, group discussions, and pop quizzes to gauge student understanding before moving to the next portion of the class.

All employees need to take part in virtual PLC programming trying is a computer, microphone, webcam, and internet connection. Virtual training instructors meet the same strict criteria as TPC's offsite instructors, including years of industry and educational experience. For companies concerned with employee health, virtual training comes with built-in social distancing. Visit our Virtual Instructor-Led Training page to learn more about the benefits of VILT.
