Modicon 984/Quantum Advanced Course
This course is aimed at Engineers and Technicians who find that making modifications is within the scope of their work and have gained a thorough basic understanding of 984/Quantum controllers. This would be the equivalent of attending a 5 day maintenance course or having relevant plant experience. The course has been designed to introduce some of the more complex functions and facilities associated with 984/Quantum controllers. Any of the Group Schneider programming software packages can be used.
Where possible, application specific exercises, actual drawings and programs listings are used to allow the students to gain the greatest possible benefit from the course.
