Cost: $3,000.00/person

The TIA Portal Software Development, Part I training class is first in a two part series.

This 4-day, instructor-led training course builds basic programming skills with Siemens STEP7 software.

Using the power of Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) to integrate PLC, HMI and Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) control, students will learn structure programming and implement functions and function blocks. This is a hands-on course that will use a VFD and Motor to implement the labs. Software diagnostics tools will also be taught that will be used to debug both hardware and PLC programming.

All equipment is provided.

Would you like this class taught at your facility? Just ask.


No prior experience with the TIA Portal Software is necessary.


Upon completion of this course, each student shall be able to:

  • Implement a design using functions, function blocks and data blocks
  • Troubleshoot a structured STEP7 program
  • Use symbolic addressing
  • Implement HMI and basic animations
  • Motor control using VFD
