PI North America launches online PROFIBUS training course
April 22, 2021 by Manufacturing AUTOMATION
PI North America has launched a new online training course for PROFIBUS.
The course prepares participants to apply PROFIBUS in their own projects. It includes technical details of the technology and a thorough overview of network design, configuration, installation, commissioning, and maintenance for PROFIBUS DP and PROFIBUS PA.
PI North America, a non-profit, member-supported organization for PROFIBUS, PROFINET, IO-Link and omlox technologies, collaborated with the PROFI Interface Center (PIC), a PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) accredited Training Center, Competence Center and Test Lab located in North America, to produce this course.
The self-paced lessons allow participants to work independently and contact instructors via email/phone for related questions.
The course includes educational content for end-users, OEMs, system integrators, manufacturers of automation devices, distributors and students.
Students can receive a certificate for five professional development hours after completing the course, which is available at no cost.
The online PROFIBUS training is not a replacement for the PROFIBUS Certified Network Engineer and Installer Course. For week-long, instructor led, hands-on intensive training, PROFIBUS Certified Courses are available.
