Here's what some of my students who have taken this course had to say:

"This course is a good intro for anyone that has no knowledge of PLCs, or electrical circuits."

-Christian Ramirez

"I went through the three sections of the training and found it very good. I have a lot of experience with Rockwell PLC's and found that your course had a good pace to it. I believe that an inexperienced technician/electrician would get a lot out of this. It is hard to find fault."

-Conor Wallace

Cool huh? I love hearing from my students about the great experiences they're having with PLC Training Academy.

Hello, my name is Robert Simons and I am a Sr. Controls Engineer and PLC Programming Instructor. I have been programming PLC's for over 12 years, and most of that time was spent as a system integrator where I programmed and troubleshot just about every PLC, HMI, and Instrumentation equipment out there. I also teach PLC programming at a local university where I have taught dozens of students how to program PLCs.

While working in the field, nearly every time I have a conversation with an electrician or technician, they mention to me how much they would love to learn how to program PLC's. Because of this great need, PLC Training Academy was born. My goal for this website is to create high quality training material for you, available online, any time, at an affordable price so that you can advance in your career or just be a better you. Either way here's to your success! I'm glad you're here!
