SCHAUMBURG, IL, December 1-Omron Electronics LLC, a manufacturer of industrial automation products, is offering industrial automation courses through its Omron University, based in Schaumburg, IL. The courses are intended to develop proficiency in the design and use of systems that incorporate motion control, programmable logic controllers (PLCs), communications networks and human-machine interfaces (HMIs).

To reduce travel costs, students can complete two courses in one week and achieve proficiency in basic and advanced PLC programming or learn the essentials of both PLC programming and HMI project design.

The hands-on courses feature small class sizes and are focused on techniques to solve real application problems that help optimize the results from a company’s automation investment.
