Often students at the PROFINET one-day training classes wish for a hands-on experience. Given the class sizes, this is not practical. For an in-depth, hands-on class, PI offers Certified Network Engineer classes. These fee-based classes are a week long.
Theoretical and practical examinations are conducted at the end of the class. Students who pass both exams are certified and listed on the PI international website.
In North America PROFIBUS DP/PA and PROFINET classes are offered. PROFIBUS classes will be offered in Johnson City, TN by the PROFI Interface Center (PIC) and in Peterborough, ON at the Siemens Canada Learning Center. PROFINET classes will be offered in Johnson City, Seattle, and Detroit by the PIC.
