Introduction to Automation
UEENEEI150A - Develop, enter and verify discrete control programs for programmable controllers
Introduction to Automation is a complete introduction to all things automation and can be delivered as an accredited unit of competency or a non-accredited short course.
You will be introduced to the principles of automation including pneumatic theory, electrical relay theory, PLC theory, and all associated practicals. The electrical theory and practicals are the underlying knowledge required to understand PLC ladder diagram. This forms the first half of the course. The second half is spent programming and commissioning a Skills Lab training platform to operate to a scope of work. This course has been mapped to the UEENEEI150A - Develop, enter and verify discrete control programs for programmable controllers, unit of competency. It includes all formal assessments which must be successfully completed under supervision of a TAE qualified assessor in order to obtain the accreditation.
The Introduction to Automation course is recommended for:
Entry level engineers
Apprentices and Maintenance teams
Participants should be familiar with basic electrical concepts.
In this 5-day course you will spend the first three days learning all the basics of automation, including:
Basic variable speed drive configuration
Pneumatic theory and practicals
Electrical relay theory and practicals
PLC theory and practicals
During the final two days of this course, you will: Program and commission a conveyor training platform to operate to a scope of work.
