When reacting to a critical down situation, troubleshooting an intermittent problem, or simply making a program change, having the right tools and expertise on-hand ensures that everything goes smoothly. Keeping your team fresh with troubleshooting and programming skills for GE PLCs – like 90-30, 90-70, Genius, VersaMax – gives you the expertise you need on site when systems go down or you just need to make a change.
Just think – a lot of the GE PLC systems installed plants today have been in operation for 5, 10, 15 or more years. New maintenance guys just getting their hands on PLC technology were never formally trained on the GE PLCs. Not a good option when they are the front line of support when a critical process fails due to a Legacy PLC failure.
GE PLC Training for Maintenance staff, either at a scheduled CIMTEC class or with a custom class designed to meet your specific needs, provides a great environment for learning the older GE PLCs. We can provide this training at our CIMTEC Training Center or on your site. in addition, we can even customize the class to cover just the PLC families, the modules and the program functions that you use in your facility, so that time isn’t wasted teaching ideas or topics that are not relevant to your operations. Ideally, we’d like to look at your PLC programs ahead of time so we can drill into just the right topics that will enable your maintenance team to be most effective when they get back to the plant.
Training is just as critical for experienced maintenance and engineering personnel as it is for new hires just learning the technology. With so much technology in plants today, a good refresher is always welcome.
