TIA Portal Training Workshops

Are you a complete beginner to programming Siemens PLCs or perhaps you have some prior experience but are looking to better familiarise yourself with maintaining your systems using the TIA Portal? 

Then you've come to the right place as we have a series of training workshops that teaches TIA Portal novices everything they need to know to effectively program and maintain Siemens PLC and HMI systems within TIA Portal. 

Level Up Your TIA Portal Skills

If you have never used Siemens PLC before, then programming these systems using the TIA Portal can seem like quite a daunting task to newcomers. Although the Totally Integrated Automation Portal can be an incredibly powerful tool, getting started with the user interface without any prior training could take some time. 

To support you and your engineers that are looking to get started with programming Siemens automation systems, we are offering two TIA Portal training workshops that are aimed at leveling up your skills so that you can confidentially program, troubleshoot and maintain your systems in the most efficient manner possible. 

These workshops can be held at your local Underwoods branch or on site (depending upon numbers) at a date and time to suit your schedule. Every participant will be awarded a training certificate upon completion of each course. 

If you are currently struggling with getting to grips with the TIA Portal, our 2-day and 3-day training workshops could be exactly what you or your engineering team have been looking for. Read on for a full breakdown of the courses contents for each of our training workshops
