Course Methodology

<p>The course is hands on with great emphasis on the practical aspects of Programmable Logic Controller applications. The course is based around Siemens S7-1500 range of PLCs using TIA Portal.</p>

Course Objectives

The course objectives are to provide the participants with the knowledge and skills to enable them to work with Siemens S7 (1500 / 1200 controller series).

On completion of this course the participant will be able to do the following:

  • Understand the interaction of the TIA components
  • Apply classical program development methods
  • Solve comprehensive programming tasks
  • Apply system blocks along with blocks from the standard STEP 7 library
  • Understand, adapt, and expand given STEP 7 programs, including with step sequences and analog value processing
  • Systematically diagnose and correct hardware and software errors in the SIMATIC S7 automation system with the diagnostic tools of the TIA Portal engineering portal
  • Use the test functions in Structured Control Language (SCL)
  • Perform specific commissioning of TIA components

Meirc Professional Certificate (MPC)

MPC certified courses by Meirc Training and Consulting are designed for those willing to challenge themselves and go the extra distance. Participants who fully attend an MPC course and successfully complete the test on the last day, will receive a Meirc Professional Certificate (MPC), in addition to the one they receive for attendance. MPC certificates are regionally recognized and can be quite valuable when applying for more senior roles within the organization or outside.
