Tailored PLC Training

We’ve created courses that will revolve around you. At Kontroltek, we work with over 1,000 manufacturers every year. Each PLC, machine, engineer and factory are different.

Kontroltek PLC engineers have years of experience in maintenance, programming and repairs. They also have in-depth knowledge of Allen-Bradley, Mitsubishi Electric, Omron and Siemens PLCs.

Whether you book for a day or week, we’ll make sure everything that is covered is applicable to your workplace.
