An Internationally Accredited In-depth 3-day course covering PROFINET network installation, operation, design, and commissioning.

Who should attend this Course?

This course is designed for everyone who wants to know the theoretical and practical aspects of PROFINET, for example:

• Advisors and consultants,
• System integrators,
• Project leaders,
• Programmers,
• Hardware engineers,
• Installers,
• Suppliers, and
• Lecturers.

Those who pass the written examination and practical test will gain a valuable and internationally recognised certificate as to their competence to design and trouble-shoot PROFINET networks.

What will I learn on the course?

This is an in-depth course that teaches the details of what goes on in a PROFINET network. It incorporates the Certified PROFINET Installer Course in the first day. You will learn about the telegrams that pass between PROFINET devices, how the network is configured and started up, how the network deals with conflicts and other errors. You will learn how to use PROFINET tools to capture and interpret telegrams and quickly locate a wide range of conflicts and faults. You will see first hand the effects of failed devices, wiring and layout faults, and configuration errors, etc.

What equipment will I use?

Students on the course work in pairs, each with a laptop PC running PROFINET applications and freely available analysing software, Wireshark. In addition, each pair has a dedicated rack of PROFINET devices.

What happens if I fail the test?

Because this certification is recognised worldwide as a mark of quality training, the course test is not trivial. However, the instructor will provide you with all the information and practice that you need to pass the examinations. You will also get plenty of hands-on practice with the analyser and other tools to help you through the practical test. A small percentage of delegates will, unfortunately, fail to achieve a passing grade; however, we will provide the opportunity to retake the failed tests at a later date, free of charge.


The first day is the Certified PROFINET Installer Course. Days 2 and 3 go on to cover the Certifed PROFINET Engineer Course.
