The one-day PROFINET Commissioning and Maintenance course provides an intermediate level of training for technicians and engineers who are involved with commissioning, health checking and fault finding on operational PROFINET systems. 

The course is delivered by Control Specialists Ltd a PROFIBUS and PROFINET International accredited Training Centre, using  experienced instructors with many years of site-based fault-finding experience and the development and delivery of training courses.

The techniques taught on the course include the use of several PROFINET analysers / monitors to diagnose and locate network faults, device faults and I/O problems.

Note – The PROFINET Commissioning and Maintenance Course teaches how to find and locate faults in working PROFINET systems; however the technician must have a good understanding of the types of faults that can occur and their causes. The Certified PROFINET Installer Course provides the basic grounding which is essential to understanding the more advanced techniques covered in this course.

Who Should attend this course?

The one-day Certified PROFINET Installer Course gives an excellent introduction to PROFINET technology and how to properly layout and install networks. The verification and fault-finding methods taught are however generally limited to non-operational networks and static testing.

The PROFINET Commissioning and Maintenance course is aimed at those people who need to take their knowledge further by gaining practical experience in the techniques used to commission and support PROFINET networks.
