Overview

A program designed for individuals who will install, program, maintain, or troubleshoot Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) in an industrial setting. Students gain working knowledge of electrical ladder logic and the basis of PLC programming. Students learn the fundamentals of PLCs including processor configuration, Digital Input and Output (I/O) wiring, digital & analog concepts, and PLC program instructions. The advanced PLC class provides students with advanced programming instructions, remote I/O, introduction to advanced troubleshooting. This program focuses on the Allen Bradley SLC – 500 & Compact Logic PLCs, Rockwell Software (RS Logic 500 & 5000), and Siemens processors and programming.
