Course Objective and Description:
objective of these Industrial training courses is to take the student
from a beginner to Medium level PLC programmer, designer, and
troubleshooter and establishing communication between HMI & SCADA
environments. Students will learn PLC programming languages, HMI &
SCADA Tagging and its properties as they progress at their own pace
through exercises of increasing complexity. They will gain a working
knowledge of digital and analog inputs and outputs, timers, counters, high
speed instruction and advanced programming tools. Upon completion of
the course the student is expected to be able design, specify, and
install medium level PLC HMI systems and better understanding of SCADA
and DCS systems, and to troubleshoot and diagnose problems
