SCADA is used around the world to control all kinds of industrial processes — SCADA can help you increase efficiency, lower costs and increase the profitability of your operations. SCADA is not a specific technology, but a type of application. SCADA stands for
Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition.

In fact, many SCADA applications use PLCs as the R TU of choice, when communicating with field devices. This comprehensive course covers the essentials of SCADA and PLC systems, which are often used in close association with each other. 

This course is designed to benefit the participants with practical up-to-date information on the application of PLC's and SCADA to the automation and process control of plants and factories. It is suitable for people who have little or no exposure to PLC and SCADA but expect to become involved in some or all aspects of PLC installation and SCADA Programming. It aims to give practical advice from experts in the field, to assist you to correctly plan, programme and install a PLC with a shorter learning curve and more confidence.

While this course is ideal for engineers who are new to PLCs and SCADA, much of the contents and additional material in the extensive manual will be of value to those who already have the basic skills, but need a wider perspective for larger and more challenging tasks ahead.

The information contained in this course advances from the basics to challenge even the most experienced engineer in the industry today.

Selection of real world case studies is used to illustrate the key concepts with examples of real world working PLC and SCADA systems in the water, electrical and processing industries and this course will be an excellent opportunity to network with your peers as well as gain significant new information and techniques for your next SCADA project. 

Although the emphasis of the course will be on practical industry topics highlighting recent developments using case studies and the latest application of PLC and SCADA technologies the fundamentals of PLC and SCADA systems will be covered. The course is aimed at those who want to be updated on the latest developments in PLC and SCADA systems and want to get a solid appreciation of the fundamentals of PLC, SCADA and Telemetry design, installation and troubleshooting. 

This course provides an in-depth introduction to Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) / Programmable Logic Controllers systems. Participants will learn how remote sensing and actuation are combined with modern communication techniques to effectively monitor and control very large industrial processes—like those used in oil fields, pipelines, and electrical power systems. This course will cover most major SCADA applications, SCADA system components, and architecture. 

The course defines Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and architecture, configuration, installation, maintenance, and programming.
