Certified PROFINET Engineer Course

The 3day Certified PROFINET Engineer course is designed for all people requiring knowledge and a technical understanding on PROFINET and its operational advantages in production and plant automation.

No formal qualification or course pre-requisites are required. Students must be familiar with Industrial Automation and Electrical Engineering principles and terminology.

This is an examinable, high tech course covering theoretical and practical aspects of PROFINET relevant for designing and trouble-shooting PROFINET networks.

PROFINET Engineer begins with an overview on Ethernet plus Profibus and its relationship with PROFINET; followed by an in-depth analysis of PROFINET’s competitive advantages and most favourable applications areas.

Includes inter-active class discussions on PROFINET & Profibus cost-comparisons, PROFINET vs other Ethernet systems and instruction on available diagnostics tools.

Practical hands-on exercises include: setting up a network; start-up & watchdog time; changing names and IP addresses; configuring switches, assembling connectors testing cables, configuring a PROFINET installation and integrating a Profibus segment.

Certified Profibus Installer Course

This 1 day hands-on Certified Profibus Installer Course is an internationally-accredited one-day course covering the layout, installation and testing of Profibus DP and PA networks. Course intake is limited to 12 people per group and is suitable for all engineers and technicians involved in the planning and installation of fieldbus networks. The course focuses on Profibus and no previous knowledge of fieldbus systems is required.

Commissioning and Maintenance

The Commissioning and Maintenance course (1 day) teaches students how to use a modern Class 1 / 2 master, analyzer and oscilloscope to commission and verify devices; and to health check working networks. The Certified Profibus Installer course must be completed before undertaking this course. Commissioning and Maintenance is not a Certified Profibus course.

Certified Profibus Engineer

This Certified Profibus Engineers Course is the flagship qualification from Profibus & PROFINET International.
