Just starting out with PLCs

2 posts in this topic

Hi everybody!

I am an experienced electrical/electronics technician with 6 years of maintenance experience, and my boss at the factory recently suggested that I should start learning PLCs so I can take over the automation maintenance all by my own team. I have a lot of time to prepare for this position. What is the optimal way to start? We are working with OMRON equipment.

I found some courses that look interesting, so my training plan is:

1 finish the free courses

- the ones from Omron Learning website

- the one from LinkedIn learning "Learning PLC Ladder Logic Course by: Zahraa Khalil"

2 finish the payed courses on UDEMY

- Learn 5 PLCs in a Day-AB, Siemens, Schneider, Omron & Delta

- PLC Programming From Scratch (PLC I)

-  Practical PLC Programming (PLC II)

-  Process Visualization with HMI / SCADA (PLC III)

-  Advanced Programming Paradigms (PLC IV)

- From Wire to PLC , A Bootcamp In Industrial Automation

-  Factory Automation using PLC Logics


That being said, can you suggest me more courses / textbooks / training programs?

BTW your forum has been a good source of information for the last few days that I have took to research the topic, so I want to thank you all for providing all of this information.

God bless you all!
