Based on our experience, two weeks PLC training period is more than enough for an average engineer to understand the basic concept of PLC and SCADA
System. Since engineers have already spent many hours in learning GATES and Electronic component, it is not worth in spending more time on teaching the
basic concept of GATES and Electronic Componenets. We spend more time on how to work with the PLC and develop the application code. With this
approach we will make sure that the engineer learn the basic concept of PLC rather the subject.
Training Course Agenda (For the Level II Training, we skip the Day 1-4 as these topics are well known to the trainees who is attending the Level II
1. Brief the tranining facility.
2. Overview of field and control room Instrumentation.
3. Understanding the type of signals (analog & discrete) from the P&ID (Piping and Instrument Diagram)
4. Brief on Explosion Proof & Intrinsic safe field instruments and itís application.
5. Various Field Measurement Techniques and itís signal integration with PLC/DCS/ESD/F&G and so on.
6. Hardware involved in each of the instrument loop such as transmitter, junction box, marshalling terminal blocks (Fused, Feed through,
Knifedge), Barrier, Relay, PLC I/O card and the Processor.
1. Review on various field instrument loop diagram.
2. Workshop - Review on the installation of field instrument and itís connection with the PLC.
3. Applications of different automation system such as PLC/DCS/ESD/F&G
4. PLC/DCS System Architecture.
1. PLC Hardware and itís integration with field instrumentation.
2. PLC Software and itís Application.
3. Overview on I/O List, Function Design Specification, Graphic Design Specification, Control Narrative, Cause and Effect Diagram, Boolean Logic
Diagram documents which are being used to develop the logic and graphic.
4. PLC configuration to interact with the field instrumentation.
5. PLC HMI/SCADA configuration.
6. Workshop - Working on Various PLCs such as Allen-Bradley, Siemens & GE-Fanuc.
Remaining Other days:
1. Trainee can work on various logic and SCADA Development.
2. Review and run through the advanced blocks.
3. Workshop on the advanced blocks.
4. If the engineer is well familier on the system then we can directly jumb into another PLC supplier and breif on the programming technic. Since
the trainee already knows one PLC within one day he should be able to understand the whole concept.
Getting the egineer's self satisfaction is our target. Once the Engineer feels that he can do anything on the PLC on which he learnt that is the
break point for the training on that specific PLC.
