How does the Virtual Training work?
Once you have arranged an available training date and we have confirmed your booking, all learning materials will be provided to you prior to the start of the course. When the course begins, you will be given a unique login to your own training portal where you will be able to interact with your Tutor and other course colleagues live. During the course you will have access to Siemens TIA Portal or STEP7 Professional software and your own Siemens PLC allowing you to take part in all programming, maintenance and fault finding exercises. The aim of our Virtual Training is to give you the same experience as if you were attending our Training Centre, from your home.
We have been working closely with EAL who is the specialist awarding organisation for the engineering, manufacturing and professional trades sectors, to help develop the first EAL recognised Industrial Maintenance & Fault Finding Professional courses that are essential for anyone who intends to be working at an industrial level with machines and processes controlled by PLCs (Programmable Logic Controllers).
Who is this Course For?
This course is for anyone who is interested in working with PLCs on the shop-floor while being able to fault find, make modifications and maintain the machinery/production line.
No previous experience or knowledge is required before attending this course however, an understanding of electrical principles is useful.
To ensure you are able to work with live PLC's in industrial environments to make certain you do not compromise safety or increase production downtime when working on the shop-floor. Based around STEP7 Professional or TIA Portal, we will walk through the software and the majority of its available programming instructions that are most used throughout programs on the shop-floor. You will learn how to read industrial programs and incorporate instructions into Organizational Blocks, Function Blocks, and Functions. We will explain the Standard Operating Procedures for working on the shop-floor with PLC’s, ensuring you are working safely and efficiently. Fault Finding methods and techniques are then demonstrated and practiced, making you more pro-active when working on processes/machinery, increasing production efficiency and reducing downtime.
At the end of the course, you are expected to have a detailed understanding of the most used instructions and routines in programming, as well as being confident in approaching, maintaining and fault finding with the PLC in all situations.
Course Assessments & Certification
This training course includes examination periods throughout each day of training. We will also be including additional training time should anyone request further explanation of any topics covered.
Upon completion of this course you will receive an Official EAL Training Certificate, this is proof that the learner has successfully completed a recognised training course at a Recognised EAL Training Centre and has passed all of the assessments for the training course.
