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 programming 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 standard PLC programming. You also receive an overview of HMI, PROFINET IO, and connecting drives.
After attending the course, you can do the following:
Understand the fundamentals of interaction of the TIA components
Solve simple programming tasks using elementary STEP 7 instructions
Reliably operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
Program simple plant functions with basic STEP 7 instructions in the ladder
diagram (LAD) or function block diagram (FBD)
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, ET 200SP distributed I/O, Touchpanel TP700, drive SINAMICS G120 and a belt model.

You can use the available online entry test to ensure that the selected course matches your area of expertise.
This blended learning course combines web-based training (WBT) on the Internet with a 5-day attendance course: To prepare for the attendance course, you will receive the WBTs "PLC Knowledge for Beginners" and "SIMATIC TIA Portal Structured Programming". This allows you to improve your personal learning achievement in the attendance course.
In this course you will work with SIMATIC S7-1500 and software SIMATIC STEP 7 based on TIA portal – for SIMATIC S71-1200 we offer the trainings TIA-MICRO1/2.
This is the first of three courses that prepare you for certification as a "Siemens Certified Programmer, based on the TIA Portal". The examination is a "SITRAIN Certification Program" module.
