PLC Training

Whatever level of PLC training you are looking for, GLC Controls Inc. has a solution.

  • Standard CoursesBasic and Intermediate training for the most widely used PLC platforms

    • The Basic courses are for those who have little or no PLC experience or simply need a refresher on the specific platform. They cover an introduction to the platform's principal hardware components and the programming software. Topics covered include project development, hardware selection, program structure, communications, "relay logic" programming (Inputs, Outputs, Timers and Counters), program documentation, monitoring and trouble-shooting.

      Participants should be familiar with the MS Windows environment and be either qualified as an industrial electrician already, or working towards that qualification.

    • The Intermediate courses build on the skills learned in the Basic courses with:

      • the introduction of more advanced instructions
      • practical applications of theoretical principles
      • hands-on lab exercises
      • programming challenges
      • networking multiple PLCs
      • advanced trouble-shooting techniques

  • Custom Courses – Tailored to your specific needs and applications
