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 a SIMATIC S7-1500 automation system, ET200SP distributed I/O, WinCC Runtime, Motion Box and a belt model.
This course consists of two days of theory as the ideal preparation for a 4½ hour examination on the third day! Your skills from SIMATIC programming training (courses TIA-PRO1 - TIA-PRO3) will be refreshed and consolidated. The practical assessment involves the creation and commissioning of a complex PLC program with components of Totally Integrated Automation from SIEMENS. After passing the examination successfully you will receive a recognised certificate that attests your specialist knowledge.
