The Certified PROFINET Installer Training is accredited by PROFIBUS and PROFINET International and is now recognised across the world as the best introductory course in PROFINET technology. 

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 provides a practical, hands-on approach to network layout and installation and covers the essential requirements for a successful and maintainable PROFINET network. Examples and case study materials are used throughout to highlight the many common, but potentially very costly, pitfalls and mistakes that are made in laying out and installing PROFINET systems.

The course lasts one day and concludes with a practical exam and an open-book theory exam. Graduates of the course will also have the right to have their name listed in the Certified PROFINET Installer section of the PROFIBUS & PROFINET International web site at

Who should attend the course?

Perhaps confusingly, the course is not just for installers, but provides the basic but essential information for anyone who is involved with PROFINET at a technical level: i.e. designers, commissioning engineers, maintenance technicians and of course installers. The course also provides an essential pre-requisite to more advanced training like the PROFINET Commissioning and Maintenance Course or the Certified PROFINET Engineer Course. Although centred on the most widely used industrial Ethernet technology, PROFINET, most of the course content is equally applicable to other industrial Ethernet-based technologies.

We provide site-based and scheduled training courses and are active members of PROFIBUS and PROFINET International (PI) and are a PROFIBUS & PROFINET International Training Centre (PITC) and a PROFIBUS & PROFINET International Competency Centre (PICC).
