HMI Training Courses


Understand PLC/HMI integration concepts

HMI Training
Our HMI (Human Machine Interface) training courses go hand in hand with the PLC training. The training can be based on popular hardware platforms such as Magelis, Red Lion, PanelView, Simatic HMI etc. or be based on the popular SCADA HMI platforms such as Citect, iFix & Wonderware, Cimplicity, RSView or WinCC. We can even capture screens from your system to base the workshop on.


Our courses usually last 2 - 4 days

Nominal Duration:
Level and content dependent - Typically 2 - 4 days.

Who will benefit:
Electricians, Engineers and graduates who need to install, commission or modify HMI systems.

A basic knowledge of industrial automation concepts and the automation system the HMI will connect to.

Course Objective:
To deliver HMI system competencies to Electrical/Instrument/Automation personnel.


Client specific learning outcomes

Learning Outcomes are client specific but typically include the learners:-

  • Relating to utilised HMI panels & software technology at the workplace.
  • Being able to make modifications to HMI Panels & Screens.
  • Relating to corporate & Industrial Information systems.
  • Appreciating the selection and application of HMI technology for office & plant.
