Need in depth resource for getting back up to speed on PLC's and RSLogix

Hello all,

I worked in controls specializing in Allen Bradley and Fanuc for 3 years after college. I left the technician work to pursue an electrical engineering bachelor when the pandemic hit.

I'm pretty burnt out after this most recent year and took a work placement as a controls specialist to get a year off. Although the position was intended to be an intership, based on my prior experience, they are bringing me on with a full time wage with the expectation I wont need any training.

It has been 3 years since I've even looked at a PLC. I'm wondering if someone could provide a solid 1-stop resource on the internet to help me get back up to speed that starts off with the basics, but also gets to the more advanced stuff that I would have been exposed to doing controls engineering. I have 2 weeks between my last exam and when I start work to get myself refamiliarized with industry.

Thanks.

@TimWilborne has a lot of great videos on YouTube.

If you check with your local AB distributor you can find training delivered there by a Rockwell instructor. Based on your experience and current job, I'd recommend CCP299, description below:

It's offered as a level 1 class so it goes over a lot of fundamentals, but graduates at level 2.
