Online Courses for Fundamentals of PLC Programming



Learning about Programmable Logic Controllers is a real need for any technician/engineer who wants to work or applying for a job in the field of industrial automation. It has been proven that it becomes a major disadvantage when you are educated on the technology of just one particular manufacturer, because most of the companies have at least two different PLC brands on their industrial processes. You become more competitive if you are able to easily switch to any PLC brand, like you were able to speak several languages. This is the method INNOVENTION



This is a very good and affordable way to learn about Automation and PLC programming. Once you enroll in the online course you can create an account in our virtual platform. The content of the course is based on our successful book and has been developed through short videos, which explain the key concepts of PLCs in a very generic way. Later you will have to practice 40 lessons and 16 projects using either one of the following:

  • A simulator software installed in your computer.
  • Or an optional combination of our programming/simulation software with a real PLC (that can be bought as a low cost starter kit) The software is enough. This option is in case that you want to practice with real equipment.

In the end of the course, we review the ladder logic for other very popular PLCs like:
Allen Bradley, General Electric, Siemens, Automation direct and Triangle Research.

There are some extra advantages:

  • Highly qualified instructors will provide support via the platform.
  • You can review any concept and other support material as many times as you want, until you feel ready to go for the next lesson.
  • From the comfort of your home. You can access the platform at the moment you want 24/7.
  • You are going to learn about SEVERAL brands of PLCs and not one in particular. In a world of technology and tight budgets, you need to have options.
  • We use the method INNOVENTION. The lesson will guide you all the way to get the concepts from zero up to a professional level.
  • You install the software in YOUR computer so, you can practice any time you want even without internet connection. Optionally (not really needed), you can buy our low cost starter kit for you, in addition to computer simulations, to practice with a real PLC.
  • You also have access to our video library for you to master the concepts.
  • Only USD120 which can be paid via Paypal.com

You will never regret to take this course. Satisfaction is guaranteed. If you need some extra info or you want to enroll, please fill out our contact us form.


About the course


This course covers Theory, Lessons and Real applications.

This course is not for you if you just plan to read or learn about a particular brand. Our method, INNOVENTION, has the approach of teaching general information first and then make you PRACTICE so it will be easier for you to understand ANY PLC brand.

The first part will teach you about general theory and all the available PLC technologies, using the most common terms and names of industrial automation; knowing the jargon is quite important, when attending a job interview.

The second part is dedicated to learn the basic Ladder Logic instructions used for programming any generic PLC. There is a software tool (for downloading in your own computer) used to write and test each of the forty step by step hands-on lessons, to help you in practicing on Ladder logic programming.

The last part has fourteen industrial PLC applications with project drawings and ladder logic programs, which you can simulate. Practicing with real life examples will help you to understand better and reinforce the concepts.

There is some extra and useful material:
The basic ladder logic commands from several important PLC manufacturers:
Allen Bradley®, Siemens®, General electric®, Triangle Research® and PLC Direct®.

It will be easy for you to understand the basic concepts from any specific PLC Manufacturer´s ladder logic since you already have learned the basic instructions.

We have included some Fundamentals on Electricity, which you can skip, in case that you already know the basics.

This course is ideal for beginners and self-learners with no specific background because no prior knowledge is assumed or required. The learning methodology used here, INNOVENTION; will allow you to troubleshoot, test and debug any PLC application with DIGITAL inputs and outputs. We are working on the second course for the ANALOG part.

You get support to obtain and install the software, write a program, answer to your doubts and review of your answers to the questions from each chapter (in English and Spanish).
