Seminar Overview

In response to the programmable logic controller training needs of our students, American Trainco now offers four PLC training courses for our students.

In the first two-day class, "PLC’s for Non-Programmers", students learn the basics of working with programmable logic controllers – how to identify components, how to read ladder logic, understand PLC inputs and outputs, understand basic programming instructions, how to set up a PLC including hard wiring, how to identify and isolate the most common system faults, and so much more. This is one of the best introductory PLC courses ever designed for those who are not already familiar with PLC programming and need a basic introduction to working with PLCs.

PLC training continues for two more days in our "PLC Programming and Applications"  seminar. This PLC program is a standalone course and can be taken independently from the first training course. The seminar dives deeper into programming and applications to ensure greater comfort and a higher level of confidence for the student. They will learn to organize, design and plan their own programming; create, enter and test their own instructions; edit, save, restore, upload and download their work; and write specific task and application programs using structured text and function block diagrams.

These two PLC Training seminars are held consecutively and students can choose to get the most comprehensive training available by combining them into a single four day, hands-on workshop, PLC Workshop-From Introduction to Applicaton”. 

Finally, we now offer a specialized class that focuses on the AB ControlLogix™ system architecture and the software that controls it.

All together, these seminars provide the most comprehensive programmable logic controller training you will find.
