Level 1 First-line Practical Skills (FLPS) – “even better”
The new range of Level 1 First-line Practical Skills PLC courses introduced by INTACS some 18 months ago builds on the industry standard Level 1 M&T (Maintenance & Troubleshooting) training which INTACS launched around 15 years ago. Feedback from a company who had people attend the older Level 1 M&T course & who have now had people attend the Allen Bradley ControlLogix & S7-300/400 First-line Practical Skills course already this year; “even better”!!
The Level 1 First-line Practical Skills course content covers the same ground as the Level 1 M&T but the material is delivered in a very practical way based around the use of working Training Models. Although the “machine or process” is different, it’s a bit like being in your own factory.
To start off with, the machine is running fine & there is a lot to learn about the PLC & the way it controls the machine or process. As the course progresses, “faults” are introduced onto the machine &, using their knowledge of how the PLC & the PLC program works, delegates are encouraged to develop analytical skills, to identify symptoms & then, using the PLC toolkit available, monitor & investigate possible causes in order to pin-point the actual problem.
This approach provides a more “natural” way of learning.
On our First-line Practical Skills courses, we focus the time on the key things people NEED TO KNOW & provide PLENTY OF PRACTICAL. It’s common knowledge, if you show or tell people too much & they don’t put it into practice very soon, it’s gone – they forget!
INTACS innovative First-line Practical Skills courses have been developed to cut out a lot of the NICE TO KNOW & concentrate on the NEED TO KNOW. This means that those attending courses will have less to store away & try to remember but they will have been given much more meaningful practical experience based around the use of realistic plant simulation Training Models – the more practice, the better the chance of remembering!
