PROFINET training: Certified Installer

Objectives of the training

Being trained as Certified PROFINET Installers by Indu-Sol, your staff will gain specific expertise in commissioning and troubleshooting of 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 Installer.

The training course enables your staff to prevent mistakes in planning, installing, debugging and maintaining PROFINET networks so that the reliable functioning of your plant is ensured. The content of the training and the final examination have been certified by PROFIBUS / PROFINET International (PI). After successful completion of the 1.5 hour final test, the participants receive an official certificate as a proof of their qualification as Certified PROFINET Installer.
