TIA Portal Service 1

This course is designed for “first responders”to industry operations utilizing Siemens S7 automated control systems. Maintenance technicians, electricians, supervisors and others, who need an understanding of their Siemens control system, should attend this course to maximize line uptime.PLEASE NOTE: If training in S7 PLC programming is required, please consider the SIMATIC TIA Portal Programming 1 course.

In this first part of the SIMATIC TIA Portal service training, we teach you the handling of the TIA
Portal, basic knowledge about the structure of the SIMATIC S7 automation system, configuration
and parameterization of hardware, and the basics of programming. You also receive an overview of
HMI, PROFINET IO, and connecting drives. You will learn to diagnose and clear simple hardware
faults and software errors. You will thus be capable of reducing downtimes in your plant.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the fundamentals of interaction of the TIA components
  • Reliably operate the "TIA Portal" engineering platform
  • Understand, change, and expand small STEP 7 programs
  • Configure, parameterize, and exchange SIMATIC S7 modules
  • Diagnose and fix simple hardware faults using the wiring test
  • Diagnose and fix simple program errors using the status block
  • Perform simple commissioning of TIA component
