During economic downturns, machine designers, operators, and maintenance personnel can improve their marketability by taking training courses. Omron University, Schaumburg, Ill., offers industrial automation courses that develop proficiency in the design and use of systems that incorporate motion control, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), communications networks, and human-machine interfaces (HMIs). The course schedule for first quarter 2009 has been announced for training offered at Omron Electronics, LLC headquarters in Schaumburg. To reduce travel costs, students can complete two courses in one week and achieve proficiency in basic and advanced PLC programming or learn the essentials of both PLC programming and HMI project design.

Hands-on courses with small class sizes focus on techniques to solve real application problems that help optimize the results from a company's automation investment. Students are tested for proficiency at the end of each course and a certificate is granted for successful completion. For more information, visit www.omron247.com.
