Operating industrial computers is nothing like a George Jetson job. If you ever watched an episode of the old cartoon, George Jetson sat at a control panel pushing buttons all day. While this futuristic cartoon did fairly well with predicting some future things, the fact is this: industrial computers are more than just a few buttons. The people that operate them have to have several trainings and courses under their belts before they can stand in front of the control panels and make decisions about what buttons to push. If you are still interested in pursuing this career, you will need to take the following courses, in order, like stepping stones to get into the job.
PLC Programming Basics and PLC Fundamentals Training
This is another training that is often required if you are going to be working with industrial machines and computers.
If you have made it this far, congratulations! You have completed some hard courses and difficult trainings, all of which have prepared you for RSLogix 5000. This is the most up-to-date and complicated software and programming language that you will have to master and understand if you expect to operate some of the big industrial machines in the plant for which you want to work. Thankfully, this course, and other courses, you can take online. If you pass, you can print your completion certificate and hand that to the person who is training you
