The Making of a PLC Expert: Hard Skills and Soft Skills

In partnership with Control.com

At Control.com, our mission is to educate engineers to better engineer the future.

One of the biggest challenges facing forward progress in the field of PLCs and automation is the training and development of the skills required to troubleshoot and solve the most costly downtime failures. Compounding issues of labor shortages, time and budget limitations that inhibit training, and a lack of reliable, consistent training alternatives result in a continuous cycle of simply solving critical failures as they occur, without implementing real, long-lasting solutions.

Learn about some of the top hard and soft skills that can launch your career, no matter whether you are a learner, a teacher, an engineer, or a company attempting to foster an attitude of continuous improvement within your team - we'll discuss some of those top skills as well as methods of putting them to practice on a daily basis.

At the end, we welcome you to share questions and comments about the experiences you have used to build your own skills - in and out of the workplace - to build your career in automation.
