PLC Training and Industrial Courses for Your Real Needs

 Proven Instructor Based Industrial Education and PLC Training Materials


If you're looking at this page for the first time, right now you might be thinking, "Wow! This is a lot of information." You are right, but if you are in an industrial or manufacturing business, we have exactly what you need. Our instructor led courses will help your business increase productivity while you lower your expenses and downtime. To complement our instructor led training and for your continuing education, we have an extensive library of proven, award winning educational software and materials; all at reasonable prices.

With onsite training, you receive the benefits of customized problem solving tailored to your equipment, your software, your processes, and your precise needs. Our entire instructor led, hands-on courses utilize a teach, test and confirm method with the actual equipment, not the less effective method of just presenting information. You can also take advantage of our offsite training near your facility because we have access to training facilities in most major cities throughout the USA.

Whether it's onsite or offsite learning, we also assure that your people "get it" by covering all learning styles and documenting the effectiveness of the courses. Your staff will gain confidence and higher morale. This will help you significantly in achieving your business goals and succeeding in a competitive market. Our educational services help close the knowledge gap between OEMs and End-users.

Please be sure to follow us so you can take advantage of the many educational resources here as we are constantly adding new educational resources. Below, you will find brief introductions to some of our educational courses, workshops and learning materials.


Onsite Maintenance Training

You will receive great value in our onsite training that is unique to the industry. We focus on the safest and reliable way to perform job functions while minimizing downtime, teaching good work habits and knowledge that usually is only gained from years of experience. When you register for Allen Bradley Program Logic Controller PLC training, you have the benefit of scheduling for any shift, 24/7, and you save by our fees being based on the daily rate, not a per person rate like others charge. We also evaluate your business to provide customized onsite courses using your actual PLC/PAC programs in class. If you order PAC training instead of PLC training, the same benefits mentioned are delivered, just using Rockwell's Controllogix/Compactlogix  to deliver the RSLogix 5000 Training (Programmable Automation Controller - PAC).
