PLC SCADA System Basics

Rockwell - Allen Bradley PLC training & Siemens SCADA basics


Using Rockwell - Allen Bradley look & feel PLC training course and a Siemens SCADA basics course, you get a more blended and sound learning experience. A fitting bundle of courses, as the PLC hardware is most commonly used for RTU SCADA systems. The PLC SCADA System Basics course bundle is a synergetic combination, as PLC projects and applications sometimes include the maintenance tech working with SCADA system. Likewise, the SCADA Engineer can't do their job without knowing PLC basics. Also, the network security section in SCADA system basics course is helpful in maintaining the integrity of the SCADA network. Another thing left out of most online PLC SCADA course.


Other Online PLC SCADA System course are way too expensive. This 2 certificate course hands-on PLC SCADA System training bundle is only a fraction of the cost of others, plus once activating, you don't need internet to take. Use real free SCADA system for hands on, online final test, never expires and you earn 4.2 CEUs (42 PDH)!

What is a PLC?

PLC stands for Programmable Logic Controller. A PLC is an industrial grade Microprocessor specifically designed to control machinery.

What is SCADA?

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), is a software networked to industrial devices like a PLC, providing a pre-designated limited level of control and collecting data from those devices.
