Customer Comment ...

One of's Chief Engineers, Sabrina Taraboletti wrote a good full page review of this course to their Training Director. Too large to place on this web page, but upon request we would be happy to share the full review with you. Below are some valuable insights from her review of the class...

"...Don uses the RXLogix 500 series because it is easier to understand and troubleshoot for people who are beginners.  You need to understand the basics of the system before you can move on to understanding the more complicated features of the RXLogix 5000 System. ...Analogy;  you have to learn how to run Windows 7 PC edition before you tackle Windows 7 Server edition.  ... My 3rd assistant engineer had done some PLC work at school and on her cadet midshipman vessels.  She also felt this was an excellent course and a good starting place for those, like her, who do have a little experience with PLC's. ... I am not sure about the other FSV's, but the Shimada has a Toughbook PC with RSLogix 5000 loaded on it.  I brought that with me to the class.  I would show up early, and Don would work with me in understanding the differences (and similarities) between the 500 and 5000 series machines.  This was a great help and I came back with a with a better working knowledge of that computer and how to use it. Upon completion of the class one receives a certificate of accomplishment,  a USB Flash Drive with a ton of information on it, and an Allen Bradley Micrologix miniature PLC connected to switches and lights that you can continue to practice programming with at home.  This thing is not a cheap toy, and I really feel this sets the BIN folks out ahead of the others.  ... In conclusion I think this would be an excellent course for all engineers, EET's, and ET's in the Fleet, and not just for those who work on FSV's.  As we continue to bring new ships into NOAA, they will undoubtedly be controlled with these devices.  Everyone should have at least a basic understanding of how these things work.  Don is more than willing to do on site training, and I believe this would be an excellent course to hold during winter in port at the MOC locations. "


"Don, I wanted to stop and take a few minutes to thank you for your time and to say that the class was so worth it. I learned a good amount of info that will be and has been helpful in just the short time I have been away from the class. As I told you when we first spoke..I have helped build out many systems and MCC/PLC cabinets but never fully understood the what and why. Well with your class and time I have a much better handle on it. I would recommend the class to anyone from the fresh newbie to the seasoned PLC tech. I think from your experience and knowledge that there is something for all. "

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

"Don, that was one of the best learning experiences that I have had in years of attending seminars.  The Allen Bradley PLC seminar was well taught on a down to earth level which I believe everyone understood.  The 3 days had just enough information in it with out giving anyone overload.  Thanks again."

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

"The workbook and disk we where given has helped me considerably after the course to keep the materials fresh. This was my first real hands-on experience and I left the workshop felling very confident in my abilities."

Curmeal M. Broadway (Mike)


"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."
