The course is delivered by Control Specialists Ltd a PROFIBUS and PROFINET International accredited Training Centre, using  experienced instructors with many years of site-based fault-finding experience and the development and delivery of training courses. It teaches the details of what goes on in a PROFINET network. You will learn about the telegrams that pass between PROFINET devices, how the network is configured and started up, how the network deals with conflicts and other errors. You will learn how to use modern analysis tools including a high-speed analyser to capture and interpret telegrams and locate a wide range of faults. You will see first hand the effects of failed devices, wiring and layout faults, configuration errors etc. 


Who should attend the course?

The Certified PROFINET Engineer Training Course is for engineers who already have a thorough basic technical knowledge of PROFINET or other industrial Ethernet systems. This 3½ day hands-on course (day 1 is the PROFINET Commissioning and Maintenance Course) covers the detailed theory of PROFINET network operation. On the course you will learn first-hand how to properly design, install, commission and troubleshoot PROFINET networks.

You will learn how to use modern diagnostic tools to detect faults and identify their causes. Those who pass the written examination and practical test will gain a valuable and internationally recognised certificate as to their competence to design and trouble-shoot PROFINET networks. Graduates of the course will also have the right to have their name listed in the Certified PROFINET Engineer section of the PROFIBUS & PROFINET International web site at
