About Us

Who are Scantime?

Scantime was started in 2004, after developing and launching the first form of PLC and SCADA e-learning courses, providing a unique look at these systems and the programming involved. Popularity in the e-learning series grew and over the years, we have furthered our e-learning platform, as well as developed industry leading, hands-on courses due to the expertise and experience gained from working in the automation industry for over 45 years, working with Siemens, Allen Bradley, Mitsubishi and Omron PLC’s.

We are now providing training in over 40 countries worldwide, delivering PLC and SCADA Programming courses to major blue-chip companies and individuals professionally, ensuring the safety of engineers on the shop-floor and integrity of a process.
