This class is designed for those with little to no PLC experience. The instructor teaches basics in connecting to and diagnosing MicroLogix, SLC, CompactLogix, and ControlLogix controllers. Focus will be placed on finding module and processor faults, as well as the resources needed to understand such errors.
CE Hours: 14
The Logix 5000 Intro class is geared towards electricians, operators, and maintenance personnel who need a quick overview or brief refresher on the basic components of the ControlLogix and CompactLogix platforms. The class includes RSLinx configuration, controller online activation, programming bit logic, and performing online edits. The class covers the entire Logix platform including both hardware and programming software. No previous Logix experience is required.
The EtherNet/IP for Industrial Automation Control Systems class covers the design and troubleshooting of an EtherNet/IP network in a Logix based control system including fundamentals of EtherNet, design of media and infrastructure, capacity calculations and configuration of Stratix switches. The student will progress through various network scenarios from a simple unmanaged star, a Device Level Ring, multiple VLAN’s, VLAN trunking, inter-VLAN routing, Network Address Translation (NAT), and DHCP. The importance and use of techniques for segmenting an EtherNet/IP network will be discussed. The class will also cover various techniques for troubleshooting an EtherNet/IP network. No experience with EtherNet/IP networking is expected, but some familiarity with Windows, RSLogix 5000 and RSLinx is recommended.
Learn how to improve productivity with the latest in connected, intelligent devices by integrating: Intelligent motor control with Ethernet connected starters, Simple and flexible safety logic with Ethernet connectivity, Smart encoders with Ethernet connectivity, and Smart sensors with IO-Link.

This class focuses on the knowledge and skills-sets required to function as an instrument maintenance technician. The electrical skills-set possessed by a trained electrician will serve as basis for expansion to include the skills-set required to maintain an instrument control system. Process measurement techniques, measurement and control equipment, calibrations techniques and calibration equipment will be discussed and utilized in numerous hands-on lab sessions. The knowledge and skill-sets gained from attending this class will lead the student to become an asset to an I&E maintenance team.
Who should attend?
- Electricians assigned the additional responsibilities of instrument maintenance
- Technicians with electrical skills cross training into the instrument discipline
- Supervisors needing to audit/evaluate a cross training program for their employees
- Individuals with less than four (4) years of instrument knowledge
