Basic PLC programming course is suitable for those with little previous PLC programming experience
02 November 2006
The Automation Systems Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) has launched a two-day introductory course covering the basics of PLC programming based on the widely adopted international standard IEC 61131-3. Starting from basic vendor-independent ladder diagram programming for a wide variety of modern programmable automation and control systems, the course introduces the basics of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and teaches the techniques of writing programs to deal with a wide range of practical problems. With a blend of theory and practical exercises it leads students through the basic techniques of general ladder diagram programming to solve combinational logic problems and shows how to use latches, timers and counters to deal with common sequential automation problems.
Priced at just £495 (£445 for members of The PROFIBUS Group) the course serves as an excellent lead-in for those wishing to take MMU's Certified Open PLC Engineer Course but who do not have the necessary prior programming experience to cope directly with this more demanding course.
People and companies wishing to book places on the course should contact The PROFIBUS Group by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone on +44 (0)20 7193 8018
