This course focuses on understanding PLCs; how they work, terminology, and the hardware and software elements of a PLC. Students will learn a systematic approach to troubleshooting; how to set up and configure local, remote, hierarchical, and distributive control systems; how to configure Input/Output modules; how to understand program and data table file organization, number systems, and processor information flow and how basic relay type instructions, timers and counters, and data manipulation instructions can be used to achieve PLC solutions.
It is designed to help maintenance technicians, electricians and others modify and write common PLC programs on their own. It will provide students the comfort and confidence they need to edit or create new PLC solutions for their specific work applications. It will make vendor-specific PLC programming manuals understandable

IN HOUSE AND ONLINE TRAINING
While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
