You will deepen your theoretical knowledge with numerous practical exercises on a SIMATIC plant model on which you also take the examination. This consists of an automation system SIMATIC S7-300, distributed I/O ET200S, Touch Panel TP177B, drive Micromaster 420 and a conveyor belt model.
The Zentralverband Elektrotechnik- und Elektronikindustrie e.V. (ZVEI) (German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association) has defined guidelines for further vocational training. Due to the continuous further development of automation engineering and technology towards Totally Integrated Automation solutions involving not only programmable logic controllers (PLCs), but also industrial communication, operator control and monitoring, security technology and the connection of drives, the course to qualify as a PLC technician had to be revised and expanded compared with the previous course. As preparation for the automation technician for service according to ZVEI, we offer the course to qualify as a Siemens certified SIMATIC technician.
This course consists of two days of theory as the ideal preparation for a 4 hour examination on the third day! Your skills from SIMATIC service basic training (courses ST-SERV1 and ST-SERV2) will be refreshed and consolidated.
The practical assessment includes the commissioning of the hardware of a PLC, a simple PLC program and the components of Totally Integrated Automation. After passing the examination successfully you will receive a certificate that attests your specialist knowledge.
To allow you to expand your skills, we offer the further training course SIMATIC service ST-SERV3. Following this, you will be capable of qualifying as an automation technician service in accordance with ZVEI.
