Recognised Training:

By enrolling with us, you will be joining individuals, worldwide and engineers from companies such as Jaguar Land Rover, Toyota, Royal Mail, British Engines, Pepsi and many more. Our courses are recongised by industry and are seen as flexible solutions to learning how to work with SCADA systems professionally to an industrial degree.

SCADA Systems play a central role alongside PLC's, allowing Operators and Engineers to interface with the Control System and PLC. If you're working in engineering, having SCADA knowledge and experience taught at a professionally recognised level can further your career. Our flexible learning solutions allow you to increase your skill set at a time and place to suit you.

Our SCADA Programming Series provides you with a basic understanding of SCADA systems that all engineers need to learn when entering this field of engineering, including the background of SCADA, how and where they are used in today’s industry as well as SCADA programming as undertaken when designing manufacturing data acquisition for any type of SCADA system. This course is primarily for people who have no knowledge or experience in SCADA programming and wish to pursue a career, working with SCADA systems, but also may be found interesting by anyone interested in SCADA systems and how they work. You will learn, basic SCADA terminology, the differences between HMI and SCADA, creating screens with the screen editor, screen layout convention, templates and navigation, running the simulator, creating dynamic content such as bar graphs, sliders, 3D effects, indicators, buttons and more.

You will also learn, advanced SCADA terminology, using sliders to control and change the PLC process, scripts and how to interact with the process, importing databases from MS Office, scaling, creating genies/dynamic/pop-up displays, security and more.

Throughout the course, you’ll have access to professional SCADA Programming software, this is to ensure that you fully understand how to work with the software to design your own SCADA projects to work alongside PLCs on the shop-floor.

Who is this Course For? 

This course is for anyone who is interested in designing SCADA systems, including setting up and creating dynamic screens.
