PLC & PAC Training Courses


Understanding Your PLC

PLC/PAC training
Our PLC training courses offer an outstanding balance of relevant theory blended with extensive practical content. The specific learning outcomes are derived from your particular requirements guided by our specialised know-how. We can utilise your site hardware/software standards to manipulate the learning outcomes around your specific site systems and incorporate your site policies and procedures where available. The training can be based on a particular PLC vendor's technology or include several different PLCs from other vendors.
