Today’s industrial manufacturing processes are controlled by the PLC (Programmable Logic Controller), and engineers who work in industry or who are trying to secure jobs in industry, are expected to know how to work with a PLC, whether it’s a Siemens, Allen Bradley, Mitsubishi, Omron or Keyence PLC.

When a production process stops working, engineers in critical situations use the PLC program to locate the cause of the fault. Engineer’s are expected to be able to connect to the PLC, locate specific areas of the program, monitor the Program and work out where the missing signals are, which has caused the process to stop working.

Engineer’s are also expected to make minor modifications correctly and safely to a program to overcome problems that cannot be quickly rectified, these actions are standard practice for PLC engineers to help reduce downtime and get production back up and running.

Engineers who strengthen their skills in this area gain the benefits of increased income and job security.


PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) and SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) Programming courses are available online, at our training centre and onsite at your place of work.

Available to anyone worldwide, you can now gain professional PLC Programming skills using Siemens PLCs, Allen Bradley PLCs, Mitsubishi PLCs, Omron PLCS, Schneider PLCs or Keyence PLCs, from ourselves who work in industry.
