The basic course offers the primary ground
rules for using a PLC. We find that even students that propose
to know about PLC's are missing some of the basic rules of use
and understanding. The course is formatted to guide the students
without going over their heads as happens in some factory
sponsored schools. Below are some of the areas covered:
 What is a PLC?
 The 5 Parts to Every PLC
 How I/O is Applied
 Ladder Logic
 Basic Logic
 Annotation and Documentation
 Installation
 Troubleshooting
As much time as needed is spent on
understanding Ladder Logic. We find that even experienced
personnel do not always understand the reasoning behind Ladder
Logic and this can constantly be a problem in troubleshooting and
programming. About 50% of the course time is spent actually
working on the PLC's.
The intermediate course builds on the basic course by applying the more
advanced aspects to using PLC's. A short review of the important facts
taught in the basic course is then followed by instruction on programming
tools that will be needed to round out the student's ability to both
program and troubleshoot. Areas covered include:
 Review
 Special I/O
 Number Systems
 Date Storage Registers
 Advanced Instructions
 Distributed I/O
 PLC LANs
We have four different sets of training equipment to select from. This choice
will depend on the type of class being taught and the type of equipment being
used at the students facility.
Six Units  G.E. Series One Juniors used primarily in the basic course.
These units have the same basic instructions as the PLC Direct 305 Line (the
unit was manufactured by Koyo for G.E.). This equipment is an excellent choice
for plants using G.E. Series Ones, Texas Instruments 305 Line and all PLC Direct
models.
Four Units  PLC Direct 305's used for the basic or intermediate course.
This equipment has analog modules installed along with binary and BCD instruments for
operator interface. Again, an excellent choice where PLC Direct models, G.E. Series
Ones, and Texas Instruments 305's are used.
Four Units  PLC Direct 405's used for the basic or intermediate course.
Also equipped with the same modules as the PLC Direct 305's. Used when PLC Direct
405's and 205's are used at the student's facility.
Four Units  G.E. 9030's used for the basic or intermediate course.
Completely equipped with Genius Bus Controllers for teaching distributed I/O.
A good choice when any of the G.E. 90 Series are used at the student's facility.
The class size may vary from one to ten students. AttaBoy wants every student to learn
to program, so we allow a maximum of two students per trainer. This allows ten students
per basic course and eight students per intermediate course. A minimum fee is charged
for trips to the student's facility which will cover five students. Class sizes are
strictly controlled in an effort to maintain a high rate of instructor to student
interaction.
Because AttaBoy Automation, Inc. is a full service integration company, scheduling for
courses must be carefully planned in advance.
For companies who may have a limited number of students or who want to send their
employees away for training, classes will be scheduled in Nashville several times per
year based on need.
Please contact AttaBoy to make arrangements. We will work very hard to meet your
requirements.
