I needed to get up to speed on working with Siemens PLC equipment and came across RealPars training on YouTube. I watched my first video and immediately went to the website and signed up as a student. I like the way information is explained step-by-step and that it’s broken down into small chunks…I can go back and review anytime I want. I’m already seeing that I can perform repairs faster and with more confidence. Three of my co-workers were so impressed, they signed up for RealPars, too.

In my engineering job, it’s important to understand PLC programming, and it wasn’t offered at the school where I got my Master’s degree. There’s no question in my mind that the expertise I’ve gained from RealPars training has made me more confident in job interviews and helped me land my current position. I look forward to continuing to advance my knowledge using it.
