  2. TIA-PROBAS-LJ - Description

Learning Journey - TIA Portal Programmierung Basic (TIA-PROBAS-LJ)

  • The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the working environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7. In this learning journey of the SIMATIC TIA Portal programming training, you will learn the handling of the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, the configuration and parameterization of the hardware and the basics of classic PLC programming. You will also learn to connect a PROFINET IO.

    An optimal mix of guided live modules (online) and self-learning modules will provide you with all of the content imperative for your work and sustainable learning success. Various practical tasks in our virtual exercise environment throughout the learning journey help you to prepare for practical application. The learning journey provides curated on-demand content to support you in your own personal practice transfer..

    More information on learning journeys


  • After this learning journey you will be able to ...
    • operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform safely
    • understand the basics of the interaction of TIA components
    • solve simple programming tasks with elementary STEP 7 instructions
    • structure small SIMATIC S7 programs with the help of OBs, FCs and FBs
    • apply standards and work with them
    • solve simple mathematical programming tasks with STEP 7 instructions
    • commission simple/small machines or expand them independently
    • test programs and fix simple errors
    • configure a distributed I/O via PROFINET
  • You will deepen your theoretical knowledge through numerous practice-oriented exercises in our virtual learning environment on a TIA system model. This consists of a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system and a virtual conveyor model.

The program (VEE Lab) was excellent. The practical exercises were very well implemented. The content was also very good. From the explanation of the TIA portal to more and more challenging exercises, everything was included. I also found it good to work on the self-study modules after each live module. So you could internalize the taught material again and apply it in the small exercises. The trainer was very helpful. He was able to answer questions immediately and well. "
