Short Learning Programmes


This technical training course is ideal for both individuals with no previous knowledge of programmable logic controllers, as well as experienced programmers who want to develop fundamental skills on how to programme and utilise Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs).

One of the key advantages of PLCs is that they have been specifically designed for industrial usage, where the focus is on stability and reliability. As a result, applications can be found across manufacturing assembly lines, warehousing and logistics and others.

PLCs are being used in collaboration with smart, 4IR systems, at an increasing rate. While the demands for PLC programmers increases as businesses automate, we recommend developing your PLC skills in parallel with IoT and other smart control system knowledge.
