You will reinforce your theoretical knowledge in numerous practical exercises on a SIMATIC plant model. This consists of an S7-300 automation system, an ET200S distributed I/O, a TP 177B Touch Panel, a Micromaster 420 drive and a conveyor model.
This first component of the SIMATIC service course teaches the basic knowledge of the design of automation systems, the configuration and parameterization of the hardware, handling with the STEP 7 Basis Software and the fundamentals of programming. You also get an overview of human machine interfacing, PROFIBUS DP and the integration of drives.
What you learn about the integrated factory automation will teach you to take a holistic view of your plant and to understand the relationships between components. On completion of the course, you will thus be able to diagnose simple hardware faults or replace modules, to coordinate components optimally, carry our safe fault diagnostics and thus reduce downtimes.

You can use the online tests to find out whether you have sufficient prior knowledge to participate effectively in the course you wish to attend.
This blended-learning course combines Web-based training (WBT) on the Internet with a 5-day attendance course: To prepare you for the attendance component, you will receive the WBT "PLC Knowledge for First-Time Users". By using these learning media, you increase your personal learning success in the attendance course.
In this course you will work with the SIMATIC STEP 7 V5.x software.
This is the first of two courses which will lead you to the exam for the "Siemens Certified Service Technician Level 1 (CP-FAST1)". This is the first of three courses which will lead you to the exam for the "Siemens Certified Service Technician Level 2 (CP-FAST2)". The exam is a module of the "SITRAIN Certification Program".
