To fully understand and troubleshoot a PLC based control system, you must have a thourough understanding of all aspects of the controller. The Advanced course completed the instruction set of the ControlLogix controller by delving into the bit manipulation, process control, and program control instructions. Placing the functionality of these instructions at your command will allow you to create functional, efficient programs.

The Advanced course further develops the skills necessary to trace the flow of word information into, through, and out of logic programs using the Word and Array manipulation instructions. This additional programming knowledge provides the ability to comprehend and troubleshoot detailed control circuits. In addition, students explore the system status and diagnostic data access instructions (SSV, GSV) to help diagnose and solve in-plant control problems more quickly.
