Really enjoyed training at Scantime. Chris has a wealth of knowledge across all PLCs old and new and is a great teacher. Hardware and software on the course is to a high standard and it was nice that everyone had their own PLC to program. The pace of the course was excellent and I can't wait to return for the next level. Thank you to all at Scantime for delivering such high quality training

Completed the Siemens TIA fault finding course, it was a breath of fresh air to do a course which was actually relevant to my job and had plenty practical techniques which I could easily implement to make fault finding easier at work. Each day was well paced, with a wide range of hardware available, learning material was well delivered with a mixture of practical hands on experience and very informative tutoring from lecturers who had a wealth of knowledge and were extremely helpful.

Just completed courses 1 and 2 with Scantime. Excellent delivery by the Engineers who have numerous years of experience across all industries and sectors. I'd already covered PLC's at University, but this was more useful in industry. They learn you how to use the vast array of tools within the PLC to quickly fault find, thereby reducing downtime. Would definitely recommend Scantime for any company looking to train up they're Technicians / Engineers. Looking forward to the level 3 course. Thanks to all at Scantime.

I took the Siemens Step 7 Professional Programming (Modules 1&2) e-learning course. In my opinion it is a great course to learn the Step 7 software basics in an easy and understandable way. You only will learn the most important aspects. I think once you finish the course you will be able to develop your skills by yourself.

The course provided a really good insight to the Allen Bradley PLCs to me and my colleagues. It covered every tiny details relating to the PLCs. They also helped me with out of course questions I raised and made a lot of things clearer to me. I would recommend this training to others and will see the Scantime crew for further trainings.

The content of the training was absolutely spot on for someone who just started to learn about Ladder Logic programming using Siemens TIA portal. The hands on experience to use TIA portal was really helpful for me. The course tutor spent a lot of time during my training to answer my questions, it felt like class room experience.

Excellent course. The tutor was not only highly knowledgeable about the subject matter but also able to deliver complex ideas clearly, always relating back to first principles. I have taken many different courses over the years and this was by far one of the best.
