Maintenance Training Customers Comment ...

"After your seminar, I feel very confident and working through the program and if I don’t know what something does, you have given me the tools to find out how they work and why. I’m sure going to tell everyone I can that this training is a must have if you have to deal with any PLC’s."

Ralph Adams (Leads Facilities Management Technician)

Missouri Dept. of Conservation


"Our skill levels ranged from expert to beginner and no one was left behind. Tell Don I said hello when you speak with him. This guy is good."

Ross Thomas, Jr


K33 Decon/Final Survey Building Ops Manager


"I recently went to a Troubleshooting with the PLC 5, SLC 500 and MicroLogix using Allen-Bradley training help by a company called BIN95. This was by far the best PLC class I have been too. I recommend this class for both a refresher to your seasoned techs as well as your techs that have limited knowledge of PLC’s. Don does a great job catering to both levels, as well as all learning styles."

Brad Cannon

Reliability Manager

Georgia-Pacific Corrugated LLC - Albion


"This training is not like the vendor training we have received before where they try to sell you their hardware. We where getting hands-on training after the first hour and advice that only an experienced end-user would offer. A great supplement to our tech school training. Thanks"


Maintenance Manager


"One of the best hands-on classes I have attended. The hands-on portion really added  to my limited experience in PLCs."

Elaine Vavra (Instructor)

Southeast Community College


I just took the Maintenance and Engineering PLC Training Workshop in St. Louis, MO and would have to recommend this to anyone looking to brush up or further their understanding of PLC's and ladder logic. I have had other PLC courses before but I gained a lot more knowledge from Don's class. Don taught us best practices in writing ladder logic and simpler ways to get around in RSLogix along with some great troubleshooting skills.

Brady Stockbarger, Maintainer at Anheuser-Busch


"I just took the BIN Network class on PLC trouble shooting last month in Atlanta. I found it to be a huge help. I had worked on many PLC projects and installs ,but never fully understood how they worked..Don changed that quickly. His class is great! It is very friendly to the newbie and also has information that I could see usable by the seasoned vet."

Kiev Thomason, Maintenance Lead at Haband


“Don's teaching methods for the PLC Troubleshooting class were greatly impressive. He knew when to slow down to help those that were not completely understanding, and when to pick up the pace if everyone was following along quickly. The class is highly recommended, and Don makes it a great experience for everyone.”
Will Inglis, SB Electronics

“Attended the PLC training class the first week of Jan. in St. Louis. The environment of the class and the materials presented met and exceeded my expectations. I have worked with PLC in the past, but had no formal training. The material covered seemed like a lot. In the class with the presentations, class materials, and hands on exercises covered all the materials listed plus questions asked by the class. The hands on exercises with the PLC programming gave the opportunity to use with what you were taught. After the class I could take the training material with my notes and easily apply what I had learned.”
John Yakubovich, Maintenance Technician at International PaperBox
"Don gave a very knowledgeable course on RS Logix and was very attentive about the standards and the class involvement was great. Don worked hard to make sure that everyone was keeping up and understood the work. I would recommend Don to anyone for the technical knowledge and the patience to get the job done."
timothy wilson, Technician at Corning Life Sciences


This was one of the best training workshops I have ever attended, like so many others that have commented on the class it teaches you best practice and techniques to make PLC programming and troubleshooting easier to understand. I had a blast learning from Don in St. Louis and would highly recommend this training to anyone.

Sincerely, Aaron Trahern at Phillips 66 Specialty Products


"Excellent facilities. Clean! Awesome experience. Will recommend to fellow employees."

"Thanks for your seminar, it was by far the most informative and value packed seminar that I have attended to date."
