New for June 2021! Take the next step in Automation with our EAL IMFFP 3.
Following the success of our EAL PLC Industrial Maintenance & Fault Finding Pro 1&2, we've spent countless hours developing the next level of training to help further your experience in working in industry focussed on working with Fieldbus Networking, HMI Programming, Drives and advance PLC techniques.
Recognised by EAL, we aim to help you become more proactive and confident in working with PLCs safely and efficiently in day-to-day operations and fault finding situations to reduce downtime and increase profitability.
To attend our EAL IMFFP 3 training course, you must have completed our EAL PLC IMFFP 1&2.
Duration and Times
This course has currently been reduced from 5 days to 4 days in duration with the 5th day being spread across the 4 days of training, this is to help reduce the number of days you are required onsite in today’s climate.
09.00 – 17.00 (Monday - Thursday)
What You'll Learn
This 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 PROFIBUS, PROFINET and ASI as well as HMIs on the shop-floor while being able to fault find, make modifications and maintain the existing systems and networks.
During the training, you'll have access to a programming laptop which will include Siemens TIA Portal & STEP7 Professional, a Live Siemens PLC, Remote IO Stations and a Siemens SIMATIC HMI.
At the end of this course, you are expected to understand and be able to work with PROFIBUS and PROFINET Networks in industrial environments communicating between PLCs and HMIs while also being able to make modifications and maintain existing HMI systems.
