This course will teach you how to write better and re-usable code for your applications.
In this course, we dig deeper into PLC programming techniques and programming patterns for automation.
This course will be held entirely using the CoDeSys development environment and the Structured Text PLC language. So, if you are looking for a course on Ladder Logic, this is NOT the course for you.
To properly understand this course, the students should have basic knowledge about PLC programming and about CoDeSys.
If you do not have this knowledge, please check out my beginner course on Udemy: PLC Programming – Learn the Basics with CoDeSys .
In this course, we will learn different programming patterns for automation, focuses on modularity and code re-usability.
We will develop different tools and templates that can be re-used in many different projects and machines.
We will work on carefully designed simulations, provided by me, that will allow you to program a complete automatic machine, even without having a real PLC.

If you want to work as a PLC software engineer or if you want to make a career in automation, this is the course for you!
At the end of this course you will have learned many techniques that will allow you work better, faster and in a more efficient way.

You will learn

✓ You will learn to program PLCs and automatic machines in a structured and efficient way
✓ You will learn to apply modularity and other software engineering concepts in the IEC 61131-3 languages
✓ You will work on carefully designed exercises and simulations of full complete machines
✓ You will learn how to use CoDeSys advanced tools for programming and debugging.
✓ You will develop your own tools and templates that you will be able to apply to any of your own projects


• The students should have basic knowledge about PLC Programming and about the CoDeSys development environment
• If you do not have this basic knowledge, check out my beginner course: PLC Programming – Learn the Basics with CoDeSys

This course is for

• Anyone who works (or wants to work) in the Automation Software industry and wishes to acquire better skills and knowledge regarding PLC programming
• Anyone who wants to learn how to write better PLC code and be more efficient in the SW development process
