Objectives of the training
Being trained as Certified PROFINET Engineers by Indu-Sol, your staff will gain specific expertise in planning and projecting PROFINET networks. This promotes an increased competitiveness of your business. During the 2.5-day training course the participants are educated theoretically and practically in PROFINET topics. Thereby, they can deepen their acquired knowledge in practice-oriented exercises. Finally, the participants have the opportunity to absolve the examination to become a Certified Engineer.
The training course provides advanced technical knowledge that enables your staff in planning, commissioning and maintenance of reliable networks. The content of the training and the final examination have been certified by PROFIBUS / PROFINET International (PI). After successful completion of the final test the participants receive an official certificate as a proof of their qualification as Certified PROFINET Engineer.
Employees from the departments planning, commissioning, maintenance and service. Especially planners and project engineers, manager and consultants, system integrators, programmers and hardware engineers.
Basic knowledge in theoretical and practical aspects of PROFINET required.
