This course is presented in collaboration with NGTS Training Centre and the qualification is assessed against National Unit Standards, listed under the auspices of MERSETA, with QCTO.
This course expands the concepts learned in the Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers course. It discusses detailed programming principles and techniques of Programmable Logic Controllers (Programming 1) and explains the concepts of Control Systems Technology (CST).
This course has a theoretical and practical component (control panel simulation using the Siemens PLC S7-300 CPU). This means that the learner will receive a lecture conducted by an expert facilitator after which the learning experience is enhanced by a practical session where the learner has the opportunity to practice installing, wiring and programming the S7 300 PLC that was covered during the theoretical lecture.
A facilitator is always at hand to continuously address any questions and to assist the learner where necessary.
