Control Systems Technology:
SCADA and PLC Training Programs
"Certificate in Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs) and SCADA Systems"
Commencing on the 12th of March 2013, delivered by the Engineering Institute of Technology (EIT) Training Provider. (On-Line control systems technology course is also recognized by Engineers Australia for CPD purposes.)
This control systems technology course is designed to benefit you with practical up-to-date information on the application of PLC systems to the automation and process control industries. It is suitable for people who have little or no exposure to PLCs (programmable control systems), but expect to become involved in some or all aspects of PLC installation. It aims to give practical advice from experts in the field, to assist you to correctly plan, program and install a PLC with a shorter learning curve and more confidence.
SCADA has traditionally meant a window into the process of a plant and / or a method of gathering of data from devices in the field. Today, the focus is on integrating this process data into the actual business, and using it in real time. In addition to this, today's emphasis is on using Open Standards, such as communication protocols (eg IEC 60870, DNP3 and TCP/IP) and 'off-the-shelf' hardware and software, as well as focusing on keeping the costs down. PLCs continue to gain in popularity. In fact, many SCADA applications use PLCs as the RTU of choice, when communicating with field devices.
This comprehensive course covers the essentials of SCADA and PLC systems, which are often used in close association with each other. A selection of case studies are used to illustrate the key concepts with examples of real world working SCADA and PLC systems in the water, electrical and processing industries. This course will be an excellent opportunity to network with your peers, as well as to gain significant new information and techniques for your next SCADA / PLC project. Although the emphasis of the course will be on practical industry topics highlighting recent developments, using case studies, the latest application of SCADA, PLC technologies and fundamentals will be covered. The workshop is aimed at those who want to be updated on the latest developments in SCADA and PLC systems and want to get a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of their design, installation and troubleshooting.
Maintenance and all those who want to be updated on the latest developments in SCADA
and PLC systems and want to get a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of their
