PLC Training Courses from American Trainco
In response to the PLC training needs of our students, American Trainco now offers two PLC courses
for our students. The first is called
"PLCs for Non-Programmers" and the second is called
"PLC Programming and Applications". We combine these PLC classes together to offer a single PLC
program conducted over four consecutive days called a
"PLC Workshop – from Introduction to Application".
In the first two-day class,
"PLC’s for Non-Programmers", students learn the basics of working with programmable logic
controllers – how to identify components, how to read ladder logic, understand PLC inputs
and outputs, understand basic programming instructions, how to set up a PLC including hard
wiring, how to identify and isolate the most common system faults, and so much more. This
is one of the best introductory PLC courses ever designed for those who are not already
familiar with PLC programming and need a basic introduction to working with PLCs.
At the student’s option, PLC training continues for two more days in our
"PLC Programming and Applications" seminar. This PLC program is a standalone course
and can be taken independently from the first training course. The seminar dives
deeper into programming and applications to ensure greater comfort and a higher level
of confidence for the student. They will learn to organize, design and plan their own
programming; create, enter and test their own instructions; edit, save, restore, upload
and download their work; and write specific task and application programs using structured
text and function block diagrams.
Together, these two PLC training courses provide a complete and comprehensive education
for technicians who work on or around programmable logic controllers in plant or facility
settings. For more detail, select one of our PLC classes below.
