Although PROFIBUS and PROFINET are well established and easy to handle technologies, training is essential when you are involved in and making a business with this advanced automation technology.
Training gives you confidence and you will 'have fun' implementing and using it. This makes your job less stressful, especially for the plant-owners, which are able to communicate with the contractors so they know what is going on and get less unwanted surprises afterwards.
During the training courses you can also talk with the instructors about your personal situation and get advice about the best way to proceed.
