This course is designed to give you a deep understanding of the core values needed to be able to program, troubleshoot, and have the deepest knowledge of Rockwell Automation PLC controls with RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000. This course starts from scratch and builds up element by element to give the very best detail about PLC controls.
- Anyone looking to learn the complete setup and PLC controls in the RSLogix 5000 or Studio 5000 software
- Example: May have some knowledge of PLCs but is looking to find out the details and the tricks of the trade.
Software Used In This Course Are skills:
- RSlogix 5000
- Studio 5000
- RSlogix 5000 Emulator
- Studio 5000 Emulator
All Programming Topics covered in this course:
- Ladder Logic
- Function Block Diagram
- Structured Text
- Sequential Function Chart
This is the best course on the internet for a detailed Rockwell Automation PLC training and I highly doubt that there will be anything close to this unless I am the one who makes it. Continuously raising the bar is my mission and I encourage you to join my journey.
As part of making this course the best, I will be adding revisions or videos from time to time to add more sections but as it sits right now there is over 20 hours of video training about RSLogix 5000 and Studio 5000 controls.
I have a very successful YouTube channel about PLC programming and run a website to assist with this effort as will which is Online PLC Support if you were to Google it, I have a very effective way to train and share industry secrets that aren't talked about anywhere else. Even the RA Knowledgeable.

What is the Curriculum For This PLC Course?
This course starts out first introducing the software that will be used and what the differences then quickly lead into the ladder logic section which has over 13 hours of video training just in the ladder logic section then each of the other section have between 3 to 5 hours.
This starts off in a slow pace to give a beginner level approach but then rapidly picks up the pace to get the key foundation of programming ladder logic. To give a first-hand view of the course content I have put together a small list of some of the top items that are in this section.

What Are Our Goals?
I will not stop producing videos and training courses until everyone that wants to better themselves has been helped, whether through my free videos on YouTube or through my paid courses that I have made. Feel free to reach out to me if you need to, I will help out in any way that I can.
Here is an example of what I talk a systems tech, knowing this knowledge will produce the best techs out in the industry.

I am happy to say he is one of the lead people in controls where he currently works now after what he learn & the effort he put in.
Automation is a great field.
Moving forward every day, trying to be a better version of myself tomorrow than I am today, i hope you do the same.
