SIMATIC Service 1 in the TIA Portal

    Short title: TIA-SERV1, Duration: 5 days


    • Basic knowledge of automation technology
    • This blended learning course combines web-based training (WBT) on the Internet with a 5-day classroom course: You will receive the WBT "PLC knowledge for beginners" to prepare for the classroom part. This will increase your personal learning success in the classroom course.
    • You can use the available online entrance test to ensure that the course you have chosen matches your skills.

    Description/learning objective:

    The Totally Integrated Automation Portal (TIA Portal) forms the working environment for integrated engineering with SIMATIC STEP 7 and SIMATIC WinCC. In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal service training, we will teach you how to handle the TIA Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, the configuration and parameterization of the hardware and the basics of programming. You will also gain an overview of operating & monitoring, PROFINET IO and the connection of drives. You will learn how to diagnose and rectify simple hardware and software faults. This will enable you to reduce downtimes in your system.

    After attending the course, you will be able to

    • understand the basics of the interaction of TIA components
    • operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform safely
    • Understand, modify and expand small STEP 7 programs
    • Configure, parameterize and replace SIMATIC S7 modules
    • diagnose and rectify simple hardware errors using the wiring test or calling up the module status
    • diagnose and rectify simple program errors with the help of module status
    • carry out simple commissioning of TIA components

    This training is based on SIMATIC S7-1500 and the software SIMATIC STEP 7 based on TIA Portal - for SIMATIC S7-1200 we offer the training courses TIA-MICRO1/2.
    This is the first of two courses that will prepare you to become a "Siemens certified SIMATIC technician based on TIA Portal" (CPT-FAST1).
    This is the first of three courses that prepares you for the qualification "Automation technician service according to ZVEI based on TIA Portal". Both examinations are modules of the "SITRAIN Certification Program".
