Motion Control Fundamentals Course Description
Photo, screen capture or image
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to
demonstrate fundamental motion control concepts common
to all Rockwell Automation motion control systems.
This course is designed to provide you with an understanding of the
concepts, terminology, functionality and applications of motion control.
In addition, you will also learn how motion control applications function
using the concepts and principles discussed in each lesson.
This course will allow you to establish the strong essential foundation
you need before learning the skills necessary to maintain and program
motion control systems.
This course does not address motion control system design or specific
motion control software programming. If you are seeking training in
these areas, you should enroll in the relevant Rockwell Automation
training courses, making sure you have fulfilled the prerequisites for
those courses prior to enrollment.

Who Should Attend
Individuals who need to learn basic motion control concepts
for their job or as a prerequisite for attending other motion
control courses should attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following
prerequisites are required:
• A background in basic electricity, electronics,
and computer concepts
• A basic knowledge of controllers operation
All technology is provided for student use in the classroom by
Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary for students to bring
any technology with them when attending this course.
To enhance and facilitate students’ learning experiences, the
following materials are provided as part of the course package:
• Student Manual:
– Includes the key concepts, definitions, examples,
and activities presented in this course
• Lab Book:
– Provides learning activities and hands-on practice. Solutions
are included after each exercise for immediate feedback.
• Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Logix5000 Motion Control
– Provides the procedures for performing motion control
tasks in a Logix5000™ system using Logix Designer and
RSLinx® Classic software.
Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to
practice the skills you have learned through a variety of
hands-on exercises. Exercises focus on the skills introduced
in each lesson.
You will use a Kinetix® workstation containing real and
simulated devices to practice the tasks involved in working
with a motion control application.
