There are no mandatory requirements for this course. A basic knowledge of electronics and computer science may help you, but a technical mentality and a desire to learn is all you need for this course.
It is not necessary to have a physical PLC, or to have software already installed on your PC.
This course will allow anyone to learn the basics on how to program a PLC.
It is not necessary to have any previous experience because all the concepts will be clearly explained from the basics.
We will use CoDeSys, a development environment to write our PLC programs and we will use its simulation functionality to interact with processes and applications without the actual need of a real PLC.
At the end of the course you will be able to write your PLC applications and software and to apply automation programming patterns to write quality code.
This knowledge will allow you to pursue different careers in the industrial automation field.
- Anyone who has the desire to learn how to develop software for PLC or who wants to pursue a career in industrial automation.
