pROGRAMMABLE LOGIC CONTROLLERS (PLC)

CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

This course presents theoretical knowledge and practical experience for participants in programmable logic controllers. The course assumes a beginner’s level and gradually progresses to more advanced concepts. Therefore, it is equally beneficial for both beginner and intermediate-level participants. 

An experienced panel of lecturers and demonstrators will conduct the course in a professional environment. Participants will be allowed to take hands-on experience in PLCs using the equipment available at the ACCIMT. 

The course spans five days on weekends on the ACCIMT premises. Lunch, refreshments, and course materials will be provided. A certificate of participation will be issued at the end of the course.
