While the PROFIBUS- and CAN-communication in their various forms is a well established technique with a large installed base, PROFINET is still an early stage technology. Accordingly, the demand for information for these technologies is different.
As official PROFINET COMPETENCE CENTER and CERTIFIED TRAINING CENTER we offer trainings for both, the basics of the technology and for standard-compliant installation and reliable operation of the communications network in its equipment base.
This 2,5-day training provides an in-depth PROFINET overview. It conveys the technological foundation and explains aspects of the PROFINET specification using real-world examples.
On the third day of the training the exam to become Certified PROFINET Engineer (CPNE) is held. That day ends approximately at 2:00 p.m.
The participant will receive an official certificate of PI International for passing the exam.
- PROFINET overview
- Technological basics of PROFINET IO
- Introduction to the PROFINET IO specification with reference to Conformance Classes and hands-on exercises
