Who Should Attend
Individuals who are responsible to install, maintain and
troubleshoot electromechanical machine controls should
attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following
prerequisite is required:
Familiar with basic electricity
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 your learning experience, the
following materials are provided as part of the course
Student Manual, which contains the key concepts,
definitions, and examples presented in the course and
includes hands-on exercises.
Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to
practice the skills you have learned through a variety of
hands-on exercises. These exercises focus on the skills
introduced in each lesson.
To complete the exercises, you will use a basic electrical
training workstation. Because the basic skills taught in the
course apply to all electrical control applications, the
hands-on exercises permit you to apply what you have
learned in your workplace environment.
This is a four-day course.
The course number is MFG213.
