An essential course for electrical engineers and technicians needing to upgrade their skills to include industrial ethernet installation. This one-day, hands-on course teaches the design, installation and testing of complete PROFINET networks and will teach delegates how to avoid common, but potentially expensive, installation problems.

Who should attend this Course?

This course is designed for technicians and engineers who are involved in the installation of PROFINET cables, devices and switches. It is also for people who want to know the basics of industrial Ethernet. After completing this course and if you want to know more about PROFINET, you can take the Certified PROFINET Engineer Course.

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.

Why is it a certified course?

You are assessed at the end of the course by taking a written and practical test. Those who pass the written examination and practical test will gain an internationally recognised certificate as to their competence to install PROFINET networks.

Duration: 1 day (9:00 - 5:30 including a theory and practical test).
