Objectives of the training

In participating in one of our external PROFINET training courses, your staff will gain specific expertise in commissioning and troubleshooting of PROFINET networks. This promotes an increased competitiveness of your business. Within two days the participants are qualified theoretically and practically in PROFINET topics. Thereby, they can deepen their acquired knowledge in practice-oriented exercises. The content of the training has been certified by PROFIBUS / PROFINET International (PI).
