Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) courses teach students how to program and use PLCs in industrial applications that require electrical control.

Using PLCMotion software, students program virtual PLCs, troubleshoot ladder diagrams and control programs, and also design original HMIs for displaying PLC program simulations.
