AU-LEONI Automation Systems Training

The partnership of Auburn University and LEONI specializes in technical training, emphasizing hands-on learning methods with easy-to-understand, well-written courseware. We offer a full range of training options, from delivering courses to course creation, even book printing, all done in-house by our expert staff. Trying to start a technical training program? We have assisted many clients in building comprehensive programs from the ground up. LEONI is a training institution licensed by the state of Michigan and has trained more than 20,000 students.

We know that investing in training is expensive, and having your workforce armed with the right skillset to troubleshoot your equipment can make the difference between success and failure in eliminating downtime.

There are five reasons that set AU-LEONI Training apart from others:

  1. We offer a customized training solution. Our training is customized to your facility’s programs and applications, offering flexible topics and curriculum, not a generic “canned” training course with little relevance to your workforce’s needs.
  2. We take a systems approach to training. We cover more than just the pieces — robots, PLCs, drives, conveyors, and field devices, for example. We can cover your entire integrated automation system, and how to troubleshoot from HMIs, down to the component level.
  3. Our training is flexible. Courses can be hosted at your site with our mobile training equipment, at our training center, or through our college partners.
  4. We teach applications and processes. Not only is the hardware itself important, a thorough understanding of what it does is equally critical, regardless if it’s material handling, palletizing, flow processing, machining, welding, or stamping.
  5. We guide technology migration: We can show your workforce how to transition from one technology to a newer one. Because our instructors have decades of experience and are cross-trained on multiple technologies, we can do something unique: take your workforce’s existing knowledge and tie that into how the new automation is different (for example, migrating to Siemens from Rockwell). This not only saves time but also reinforces confidence in your workforce.

This five-day core program is designed to prepare each student with the skills necessary for operating, installing, setup, programming, and basic operational troubleshooting of the Siemens 300 Series PLCs.

Topics Covered:

  • A systematic overview of the SIMATIC S7-300 includes a description of hardware and software components plus system configuration issues. This course concentrates on the STEP 7 hardware, program structures, basic instruction set and troubleshooting.
  • Hands-on exercises using STEP 7 software examples, so that maintenance personnel can focus on issues such as how to replace an existing module and how to use diagnostic indicators to verify correct operation of communication.
