Short title: CPT-FAST1A, duration: 100 hours, 30 evenings and 6 Saturdays

Prerequisites: Basic knowledge of automation technology

Description/learning objective:

The German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association (ZVEI) has defined a further training guideline. The reason for this is the constant further development of automation technology towards Totally Integrated Automation solutions. In addition to programmable logic controllers (PLCs), these now also include components for industrial communication, for operating and monitoring tasks, safety technology and the connection of drives. This made it necessary to revise the previous PLC technician qualification. In preparation for the automation technician service according to ZVEI, we offer the Siemens certified SIMATIC technician qualification.

In preparation for the automation technician service according to ZVEI, we offer the qualification as a Siemens certified SIMATIC technician. This training in the form of an evening course consisting of 30 evenings and 6 Saturdays of theory and practice and a 4-hour exam on the last day of training (a Saturday) and includes the contents of the basic training for SIMATIC S7 Service (contents of the courses TIA-SERV1, TIA-SERV2 and CPT-FAST1) and offers the optimal preparation for the included exam!
