This course is designed to give you a deep understanding of the core values needed to be able to program, troubleshoot, and have the deepest knowledge of Rockwell Automation PLC controls with RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000. This course starts from scratch and builds up element by element to give the very best detail about PLC controls.
- Anyone looking to learn the complete setup of PLC controls in the RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000 software
- Anyone new to PLC programming, some experience, or even a seasoned tech that is just looking for new tips & tricks of automation.
- Please watch our sample videos to make sure the way we teach is helpful in your journey
Software Used To Teach With:
- RSLogix 5000
- Studio 5000
- RSLogix 5000 Emulator
- Studio 5000 Emulator
- EasyPLC Machine Simulator
All Programming Topics covered in this course:
- Ladder Logic
- Function Block Diagram
- Structured Text
- Sequential Function Chart
This has been voted the best course on the internet for detailed Rockwell Automation PLC training and I highly doubt that there will be anything close to this unless I am the one who makes it. My goal is to continuously raise the bar and I encourage you to join my journey. Every day is an opportunity to learn something, just 15 minutes a day can make the difference between good to great.
As part of making this course the best, I will be adding videos from time to time to share more knowledge, as it sits right now there are over 24 hours of video training about RSLogix 5000 and Studio 5000 controls.
I have a very successful YouTube channel about PLC programming and run a website to assist with this effort as well which is Online PLC Support if you were to Google it, using a very effective way to train and share industry secrets that aren't talked about anywhere else.

What is the Curriculum for this PLC Course?
This course starts out first introducing the software that will be used and the differences then quickly jumps into the ladder logic section which has over 9 hours of video training just in the ladder logic section then each of the other sections has between 3 to 5 hours plus bonus training material not found anywhere else.
This starts off at a slow pace to give a beginner-level approach but then rapidly picks up the pace to get the key foundation of programming ladder logic. To give a first-hand view of the course content I have put together a small list of some of the top items that are in this section.
I encourage you to view to full curriculum along with free preview videos at the bottom of this page.
