Training: Custom Classes

Do you have a specific software or hardware application that your employees need to understand?

Do field service personnel need a better overall understanding of machine automation so that they can troubleshoot problems quicker?

Are you under pressure to get personnel up to speed?

EandM offers a standard set of PLC and HMI software and hardware classes. However, if you don't see exactly what you want, why not build your own custom class with EandM to meet your automation and control requirements?

Save Time and Money

Whether it's for Engineering, Sales, IT or Field Service, EandM will develop the appropriate agenda to help your audience get the most out of every minute of the class. You tell us what type of audience, and we'll tailor the class to their needs.

What's in a Custom Class?

It's up to you! EandM will create classes based on what you tell us you need. Need inspiration? Here are some examples of custom classes already created:

  • What is your goal for the class?
    Example: "Our technicians must be able to troubleshoot and maintain our machine with minimum support."
    Example: "Our sales force must have a general understanding of the technology used on our machines."
  • List all topics you'd like covered.
    Example: "Upon completion, students should understand Wonderware InTouch alarming, Ethernet networking, and PLC basics."
    Example: "Students should understand industrial network topology and data storage activity between the PLC and HMI network."
  • For very specific applications, send us a copy of your program. We can structure a class that reviews the code and program structure in detail.
