The advanced course is aimed at personnel who have gained a thorough basic understanding of the SLC-500. The course has been designed to introduce some of the more complex functions and facilities associated with the SLC-500. It would be an advantage if the student has already completed an SLC-500 4 day maintenance course.

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.
