How do I design a PROFINET network? How does it work? How do I install it? How do I configure it? How would I troubleshoot it? If you are asking yourself these questions, then this course is for you!

This is an intense and detailed course on how to design, install, commission, and troubleshoot a PROFINET network. Besides discussing practical installation issues, it also gets right down to the protocol/packet level and includes detailed information on the bus parameters. The students will have many opportunities to work with the equipment as with over 20 labs over the week.

Both the course and the instructor have been certified by PROFIBUS & PROFINET International which guarantees high-quality training. The course ends with both a written and practical test. Successful students will have their names listed on the PROFINET website as a Certified PROFINET Network Engineer and a Certified PROFINET Installer.
