we’ll help you get the skills you need to stand out and get hired!
You can immediately apply learnings and improve your results.
You'll get access to this course and ultimate access to the rest of the courses in the library.
Yes. RealPars will issue a Certificate of Completion (certified by RealPars) when you complete the course.
All of the software used in PLC Programming from Scratch is available for free and optional software includes a 30-day free trial.
To start the course, you don’t need to have any special software installed since we take you through the process of downloading and installing any required software in the course.
You don’t need any hardware to follow this course since Connected Components Workbench includes a free Micro800 Simulator.
A later course in the series covers the process of working with PLC hardware. To get the most value out of this course, we do recommend that you purchase a Micro820 Starter Kit if you have the budget available for hardware. This starter kit will let you get some hands on experience with a physical PLC.
If you don’t have access to PLC hardware, then you can still watch the videos in this course so that you understand how to work with hardware.
Yes. Most people enroll individually, and then submit their receipt to their employer for reimbursement. However, if your employer has a tuition budget and wants to train 5 people or more, you can send us an email at [email protected] and we will help you with bulk signup.
