If you are a customer using or considering PROFINET, this class is an excellent way to learn the technology with practical knowledge to build your own system, and enable yourself to troubleshoot networks using tried and true diagnostic methods and tools!


November 18-22 | Phoenix Contact | Ann Arbor, MI

Our certification classes are intense, hands-on courses which will show you where and how to find and use technology related information. We give you the practical knowledge to install and build your own systems, and enable you to troubleshoot networks using tried and true diagnostic methods and tools.
These courses are never based on sales or marketing pitches and focus on the vendor neutral details of the technology. You need to learn how the underlying technology works from the application to the frame level and pass both a practical and written exam to become certified. You will receive 24 PDH hours and two Certificates (PROFINET engineer, installer) from PROFINET International (PI) for completing the course.
