Course Information & Topics
We recommend completing our EAL Allen Bradley PLC Industrial Maintenance & Fault Finding Pro (IMFFP®) 1&2 course before completing our City & Guilds Assured Allen Bradley PLC IMFFP® 3 training courses.
Our IMFFP® training course is for anyone who has completed our EAL PLC IMFFP 1&2 and for those who will be working with PLCs, Open Networks such as EtherNet I/P as well as HMIs on the shop-floor while being able to fault find, make modifications and maintain the existing systems and networks.
During our IMFFP® training course, you'll have access to a programming laptop which will include Allen Bradley RSLogix 5000/RSlogix 500, a Live Allen Bradley PLC, Remote IO Stations and an Allen Bradley HMI.
At the end of the IMFFP® training course, you are expected to understand and be able to work with EtherNet I/P Networks in industrial environments communicating between PLCs and HMIs while also being able to make modifications and maintain existing HMI systems.

City & Guilds Assured Certification & Digital Credential
Upon completion of our City & Guilds Assured IMFFP® course you will receive an Official City & Guilds Assured Training Certificate and Digital Credential, this is proof that the learner has successfully completed a recognised training course at a Recognised Training Centre and has passed all of the assessments for the training course. Digital credentials allow you to communicate your skills to others online within seconds. We do this by using the Open Badge Standard powered by Credly, the world's most connected credentialing network.
Access to Live Allen Bradley Control Systems and RSLogix/Studio 5000
Connect and work with our Live Allen Bradley PLC control systems as well as Networking to Allen Bradley Remote IO, HMIs and Drives via Allen Bradley RSLogix/Studio 5000 in classrooms that are dedicated to help you gain unrivalled hands-on experience.
Face-to-Face Tuition from Engineers
We believe to run an engaging and effective PLC training course that relates to those attending, tutors need to have current real-world experience in working with live PLCs, which is why throughout your training, you'll be learning from our PLC experts who are are actively working in industry with our Automation department. This ensures you are learning best-practice PLC maintenance and troubleshooting methods/techniques which are up-to-date and are currently used on shop-floors by Engineers, today.
During your training, you'll have access to your own Scantime Training Manual. Each training manual includes interactive elements which are designed to help you stay engaged. These training manuals will be yours to take home, allowing you to refresh your new skill-set once you have completed our IMFPP® training course.
