The course is divided into:

Level 1 teaches Ladder Diagram (LD) programming. After successfully completing the course projects, you will gain a proficiency certificate in LD programming. Level 1 is a distance-learning online course, supported by email and telephone conversations.


Level 2 covers all other programming languages defined in IEC61131-3, namely Function Block Diagram (FBD), Sequential Function Chart (SFC), Instruction List (IL) and Structured Text (ST). In addition, Continuous Function Chart (CFC) language is also covered in detail.


The course explains why you have to consider of using multiple programming languages and teaches the skills required to develop a modern control system.


Level 1 uses simulated plants while Level 2 uses real rigs. These rigs include conveyor systems, a pick and place robot, a 3-storey lift system, a batch electro-chemical treatment plant and have been specially designed for teaching programming by Manchester Metropolitan University staff.
