The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the work environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC.
In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal service training, we teach you the handling of the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, configuration and parameterization of hardware, and the basics of programming. You also receive an overview of HMI, PROFINET IO, and connecting drives. You will learn to diagnose and clear simple hardware faults and software errors. You will thus be capable of reducing downtimes in your plant.
After attending the course, you can do the following:
Understand the fundamentals of interaction of the TIA components
Reliably operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
Understand, change, and expand small STEP 7 programs
Configure, parameterize, and exchange SIMATIC S7 modules
Diagnose and fix simple hardware faults using the wiring test
Diagnose and fix simple program errors using the status block
Perform simple commissioning of TIA components
You can deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a TIA system model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system, ET200SP distributed I/O, Touchpanel TP700, drive SINAMICS G120 and a belt model.

In this course you will work with SIMATIC S7-1500 and software SIMATIC STEP 7 based on TIA Portal.
This is the first of two courses to prepare you for certification as a "Siemens Certified Service Technician Level 1, based on TIA Portal" (CPT-FAST1).
This is the first of three courses to prepare you for certification as a "Siemens Certified Service Technician Level 2, based on the TIA Portal". Both tests are modules of the "SITRAIN Certification Program".
