Types of Training Courses

We believe that the breadth and experience of our PLC capability is unrivalled.  We provide training on 18 leading manufacturers systems and for a number of these manufacturers we actually run their training business for them.
PLC Training courses on the main PLC systems such as Allen Bradley SLC 500 & ControlLogix; Siemens S7-200, S7-300, S7-400 S7-1200 & S7-1500; & Mitsubishi FX, A & Q are frequently run, both in our Training Centre & on customers sites, where the option of customising the course is frequently asked for.
INTACS also provide PLC Training for many older system such as Allen Bradley PLC-5, Siemens S5, Modicon Quantum/984 & Texas Instruments.

Variable Speed Drives
We offer a comprehensive range of introductory and generic courses on AC & DC Drives.  We have developed working partnerships with a number of leading Drives manufacturers and can offer specific courses aimed at maintenance personnel.

Servo Control
We offer introductory and generic courses on servo and motion control systems.  We are able to provide training on the latest Rockwell ControlLogix ULTRA 3000 digital servo controller with SERCOS as well as other leading manufacturers' systems.

HMI Panels
HMI display panels are increasingly being used to provide first-line diagnostics and as an operator interface.  We provide training on most leading manufacturers' HMIs and offer courses that address the needs of maintenance personnel and different courses covering screen design and editing for those who need to modify and improve existing applications.

We are able to offer training on a number of leading SCADA packages such as Siemens WinCC & Wonderware.

Networking & Communications
Training is available on a range of industrial networking options including Profibus, DeviceNet, ControlNet, Interbus, ASi and Industrial Ethernet.

Industrial Electrics and Control Fundamentals: Part 1
This course covers essential basic electrical and safety fundamentals required for maintenance personnel working in and around control panels and electrical control gear.  A range of common industrial electrical components are included with delegates being able to identify the component and distinguish between a good and a bad one.  The basics of AC and DC motors are covered together with setting and resetting MCBs, RCDs and overloads.

Industrial Electrics and Control Fundamentals: Part 2
The Part 2 course builds on the foundations of Part 1 and includes further fault finding practical experience on a range of modern control components and equipment and includes practicals with a range of sensors, safety relays and variable speed drives and basic PLCs.

Troubleshooting Electrical Control Systems (TECS)
This course aims to meet the needs of electricians & practicing multi-skilled maintenance personnel who need to review their approach to SAFE WORKING & improve their electrical TROUBLESHOOTING SKILLS. The course provides a range of fault-finding scenarios from basic level through to very challenging & which must be tackled safely & efficiently with the minimum of unnecessary & expensive hardware & component swaps.
The re-vamped course now contains considerably more “training” in the art of Safe Electrical Troubleshooting developing safe strategies on how to get started as well as the appropriate use of tools & test equipment. Where delegates have previously struggled to correctly interpret meter readings & understand the implications, we are now providing an increased level of coverage.
Individual certificates of performance will be issued & will score on safety, accuracy, cost & speed of working.

Electrical Duty Holder
The Electrical Duty Holder is the person appointed to take ultimate responsibility on a site for Electrical Matters.  The Duty Holder is responsible for developing, approving & signing-off the Electrical Policy for the site & any Safe Systems of Work (SSoW) for high risk electrical duties.

Electrical Health & Safety
As you probably already know, the law requires that people working on or around machinery & systems powered by electricity, must be given appropriate training. Do you know what this means?
A number of our clients have had visits from the HSE & sites have been found to be wanting.  Do you have procedures for safe working? Are they sound? Do your people have the essential under-pinning Electrical Health & Safety knowledge, have they been taken through the procedures & demonstrated competence?
Do you have the supporting documentary evidence? Have you done enough?

Our focus on these courses is Electrical Health & Safety. We have a 1 day course for qualified and experienced ELECTRICIANS & NON-ELECTRICAL personnel. The course provides an excellent preparation for your essential site–specific training but also provides an important reminder for those who you may have trained some years ago.
An experienced industrial electrician who recently attended the 1 day course commented that he was “surprised at how much I had forgotten that I knew”. Very often, with Electrical Health & Safety, there are no second chances!

18th Edition I.E.T. Wiring Regulations
A 3 day course leading to C&G 2382-18. Delegates can sit the C&G 2382-15 Exam on dates throughout the year.

PAT Testing
With more and more companies needing to stay within the law without having to increase additional regular costs by using contractors, the requirement to offer Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) training has increased significantly.  Our course is supported by Seaward who are the leading supplier of the suitable test equipment.

Process Instrumentation
With the demise of the customer training arms of major Control & Instrumentation manufacturers & suppliers & with the lack of training investment by many end-users in recent years, companies are now realising how vulnerable they are with the shortage of experienced instrument technicians available today.  Our fundamentals course sets out to cover the basic principles of control & instrumentation & can give both electrical & non-electrical maintenance personnel an excellent insight into the requirements of maintaining & troubleshooting a range of process instrumentation.

Basic Pneumatics
A 3 day course for maintenance personnel covering safe working practices when dealing with compressed air, reading and understanding drawings and pneumatic circuits and the operation of principle pneumatic components.

Mechanical Skills for Electricians
A 4 day course covering the safe use of hand tools and basic fitting practices and includes the fault-find and repair of mechanical equipment including removing, stripping and rebuilding pumps, gearboxes and bearings and the alignment of chains, belts and couplings.
