Automation Boot Camp: A Hands-On Learning Experience
We understand that nothing can beat an interactive, hands-on training experience, so we’ve created Automation Boot Camp. Our Automation Boot Camp provides a customized blend of computer based, in-person and hands-on training program, led by an instructor with automation industry experience, to give individuals the knowledge and experience needed to hit the world of automation running and understand what it takes to program and commission a working automation system.
- What’s a PLC?
- How do I connect my computer to a PLC so I can program it?
- What software do I need?
- Does it matter what version of software I have?
- What is ladder logic?
- And more.
For an experienced automation engineer, these questions are second nature but to an individual entering the automation workforce, they are puzzling. Automation Boot Camp is designed to familiarize individuals with basic automation knowledge, increasing their value within their organizations. Expertise with many leading manufacturers of automation equipment including, but not limited to, Allen-Bradley/Rockwell Software, Schneider Electric and Siemens, makes Huffman Engineering, Inc. a valuable partner in crafting learning plans that fit the customer, the application, and the individual.
The Huffman Engineering Difference.
Instead of learning just one piece of software inside and out, the one-week Boot Camp focuses on an overview of what is needed to be productive in multiple software applications. For example, one week could give a new automation engineer exposure to programming software for PLCs and HMIs and an understanding of how they go together. Customers can tailor their Boot Camp experiences to their needs. Automation Boot Camp is one more way Huffman Engineering, Inc. contributes to the customer automation team.
