Free Training Focuses on PLC/PC-Based Control Automation, Programming

Jan. 14, 2016
A three-day training program for automation technology and IEC 61131 programming will occur on five separate dates in 2016.

A three-day training program for automation technology and IEC 61131 programming—available for free from WAGO—will occur on five separate dates in 2016: March 8-10, May 3-5, August 2-4, September 13-15, and October 25-27. The sessions will be held at WAGO’s headquarters in Wisconsin. They are tailored to individuals who have hands-on experience with programming and installing PLC- or PC-based industrial-control systems.

The program combines lectures and hands-on exercises with CODESYS-based programming on live nodes. IEC 61131 programming topics include application-specific functions, custom-library and function-block development using WAGO-I/O-PRO, and software diagnostic tools like I/O Check.

Seminars are limited to 12 attendees per session, so enrolling online early is encouraged. Attendees should bring their own laptops.
