The course is intended for technicians, electricians, mechanics, maintainers, engineers, and anyone starting to work with programmable logic controllers. Participants should have a basic understanding of electro-mechanical control devices and electrical circuits. Basic electrical knowledge, including the ability to read schematics is desirable. A familiarity with basic computer structure and operation is helpful.
Each lesson in the PLC Program has been designed for use with groups of 2 to 20 trainees. Objectives are clearly stated at the beginning of each lesson in terms of performance. New concepts are graphically presented and immediately applied in a variety of work-related situations. Software, hardware, work sheets, and training models are combined in the exercise portion of the lesson for maximum effectiveness.
Stephen Berry, President of SMT, noted, “When the program is completed each trainee retains a set of permanent reference materials that are designed to measure their ability to select and apply appropriate concepts in typical work situations. While not every shop application can be anticipated, each instructor is encouraged to adapt the lessons as he sees fit to suit specific company applications.”
