The PLC Technician II Program introduces the theory behind PLC Programmable Logic Controllers while providing an emphasis on applications of PLCs in plant and manufacturing systems and PLC programming advanced languages. The program material and PLC simulation software (PLCLogix) used in this program are based on the Rockwell Logix 5000 PLC.
The entire online PLC II program is based on practical applications and experience in using programmable controllers in the workplace. A student who has completed the PLC II training will be able to use and program programmable logic controllers to solve machine and manufacturing process problems. A systems approach to PLC programming training is used as the programmable logic controller is one major component of larger manufacturing systems. The PLC Technician II program uses a combination of hands-on exercises, practical applications, and case studies.
The program covers advanced programming content and applications based on our advanced simulator PLCLogix. PLCLogix emulates the Rockwell Logix 5000 series PLC control software. This simulation software allows you to practice and develop your programming skills by converting your computer into a fully functioning PLC and enter, test, and de-bug your PLC programs. In other words, PLCLogix replaces the PLC, ladder rung editor, and all the electrical components that have, until now, been required to learn PLC programming and operation.
The DVD-based multimedia program presents nineteen modules of interactive curriculum using text, video, 2D and 3D animations, photos, audio clips and interactive PLC simulations. Pre-tests, interactive exercises, sample exams, and online support prepare you for computer-based final exams. The average completion time of the nineteen training modules is thirty-two weeks of part-time study.
