This high tech training course provides detailed technical knowledge of PROFINET and the advantages it offers your automation and production processes. PROFINET is using Industrial Ethernet as communication medium, which has lots of myths and grey areas for users like: cabling, security, determinism and speed. This training course will take a close look at these issues so that the participant has confidence to evaluate himself if PROFINET is an appropriate solution for his automation requirements and that he can design a proper application. All Topics will be finalized with a demonstration and practical exercises to get a direct link with the real world.

The training takes 3-days to complete at the end of the course there will be a theory and practical exam. Participants who pass both parts of the exam get the title Certified PROFINET Engineer and are awarded an official certificate.

This event is hosted by the experts of PROCENTEC who are constantly deployed worldwide to carry out projects and training sessions. They can realistically inform you about the advantages and consequences of PROFINET technology.
