Course Description

I am excited to bring you an interactive and practical online certified course on Siemens S7-300 PLC with excellent content and hands-on experience for beginners as well as professionals. This course cover the basics of Simatic Manager and S7-300 PLCs with three programming languages.

For this course you don’t need hardware at all and i'll provide Siemens PLC software which works for 12-Days (trial version) along with Factory I/O (30-days version). However, i’ll cover hardware as well for students who wish to work or practice on S7-300 PLCs themselves.

The course will cover basic concepts of PLC programming, hardware and interfacing techniques to teach students PLC Programming techniques based on Siemens.
