PLC Nerd

Hi, my name is Stephen Gates. I am the creator of myPLCtraining. I have gotten myself hooked on industrial automation and want to share the skills I've learned that have helped me build me a creative, challenging, exciting and well-paying career with PLCs. 

I I created myPLCtraining to help you learn about PLC programming and industrial automation. I am working hard to provide you with free and paid content that will help you achieve your industrial automation goals.

I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Missouri University of Science & Technology. Since graduation, I have worked as an engineer at small family-owned electrical switchgear business. One of my main responsibilities has been to program industrial automation devices such as PLCs to automate switchgear, generators and substation switches. It has been a very fulfilling career with lots of challenges and opportunities to learn and help customers with unique problems. Recently, I received my Professional Engineer’s License in Nebraska.

When I’m not working, I love hanging out with my wife and other family and friends. I enjoy creating and playing music with a six-strung instrument and my lungs.

I appreciate you stopping by, and look forward to helping you improve your career with industrial automation skills!
