11 - Online RS500 Course - CL101 – Basics Programming with RSLogix500


This is a lab project series with lab discussion/lectures. It is recommended that you complete at least the first half of CL100 – Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers before you begin this course.

This Basics course along with the Advanced l (CL102) and Advanced II (CL103) lab project courses and the lecture series course (CL100) is the “Complete PLCLearn Series”. The lab projects are identical to those in the Complete PLCLearn Series lab project manual available in our bookstore at PLC eUniversity. It is not necessary that you purchase the manual to complete this course. All of the projects are contained in the modules in this course. It might be more convenient to purchase the manual for offsite study, but unnecessary nonetheless. Do not register until you have your hardware trainer or emulator in hand and the software needed loaded onto your computer.

It is recommended that you do not register for this course until you have completed enough of CL100 – Introduction to Programmable Logic Controllers,  this will allow you to determine upon which platform you are going to complete the lab projects, either a hardware trainer with a real PLC or using Emulate 500.

Most of the lab projects are followed by a lab lecture/discussion. There are several lectures from other courses that are repeated in this course to make it a standalone course and for your convenience.

Certificates are issued upon completion of the course.

If purchased out of the PLC eUniversity Bookstore, our staff will receive a notification from PayPal and they will assign you to the course using your email address and a password that we will assign to you and then email to you. This will allow you to log on to the Learning Management System site and attend the course.

The course duration is limited to 30 days from the date of your first log on.
