Course Description

Are you excited to get into the world of TIA Portal but you don't know where to start?
This course will allow you to add "TIA PLC Programmer" to your CV & start getting paid for your new skills.

Hi there!  My name is Hans and I'm a full-time automation and controls engineer.  I am here to help you learn the basic concepts, tools, and functions that you will need to create fully functional Step 7 PLC applications within the widely popular totally integrated automation solution, Siemens TIA Portal.  By the end of this course, you will be able to structure and program TIA PLC applications using TIA specific tools and TIA best practices.

  • Eric: "This course is highly recommended to starter who would love to learn solid foundation of programming, hobbyist and also professionals who has no proper technique. I enrolled many PLC lectures in my account none of them impress me but this one is superb. I love the concept and technique that no one talk about. I would say the Instructor is very well experienced in the field."

Build a Strong Foundation in TIA PLC Programming with this Fully Featured Course

  • Create a new TIA Project

  • Add a SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 PLC to the application and configure the hardware

  • Structure a PLC application using TIA specific tools

  • Create function blocks and add logic to them using TIA best practices

  • Build data blocks using user-defined data types

  • Download the application and monitor code online

  • Troubleshoot faulty application code online

Powerful TIA Tools and Best Practices at Your Fingertips

Learning the fundamentals of TIA programming puts a powerful and very useful tool at your fingertips.  TIA Portal is one of the leading automation platforms used in the industry, offering automation solutions for manufacturing companies all over the world.

  • Richard: "After many hours of TIA Portal training this has by far been the best one in terms of structuring the program, use of UDTs, comments and watching/forcing functions. This course showed everything in good detail, easy to follow and kept a high level of interest. I look forward to the HMI course from this! Great work from Hans. Thank you!"

Jobs in TIA development are plentiful.  Learning the foundations of TIA programming will give you a running start in the market and a strong background to more easily pick up other automation solutions such as Rockwell, Beckhoff or B&R.

This course is aimed at people who already have a basic understanding of PLCs and ladder logic.  Throughout this course of 40 lectures and over 2.5 hours of content, we will go through all of TIA Portal´s fundamentals and establish a strong understanding of the concepts behind each step of creating a structured and well-written TIA PLC application.

  • Abdelfattah: "This is an amazing course, Very well structured, The instructor is very knowledgeable! For me I am more familiar with Allen Bradley PLC environment, TIA was a dark area for me, This course has helped me a lot to find my way in this different environment. The fast Pace of the course really helped a lot to save my time and keep me motivated without distraction."

Active Participation

Throughout the course, I’ll invite you to participate in programming exercises, putting your newly learned skills into practice immediately.  If you choose to participate (which I highly recommend) and complete all the exercises, you will have programmed a fully functional TIA PLC application by the end of the course!

Content and Overview

Project Creation

We start off this PLC programming basics course with a quick overview of the sample application that we´re going to use throughout our training videos.
We´ll learn how to create a new TIA project, how to set up the PLC hardware configuration and how to add input & output modules to our PLC rack.

Program Structuring

Next up, we´re going to focus on the structure of our PLC program.  This step is essential because it will greatly simplify our actual programming afterwards.
We´ll start by breaking down our sample application into smaller, logical modules.  Now that we´ve identified the different modules/building blocks of our sample application, we´re going to translate this modular structure to our TIA PLC programming environment.  We´ll add program groups and main function calls for the different modules of our application and we´re going to build global data structures using data blocks and user-defined data types.

Adding Logic

With our PLC program structure in place, we are now going to add functionality/logic to our different modules.  For each module, we will create a function block and we will optimize the block interface and the data transfer between the different function blocks.  We will add functionality to each function block by programming structured ladder logic networks. 

Throughout the course, we´ll put a lot of importance on using TIA best practices for each step of the process.


Our PLC program is finally complete and we´re ready to put it to the test!  We´re going to download our application to a Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 PLC.  Afterwards, I´ll walk you through the steps of editing code online, monitoring/modifying logic and data tags, and troubleshooting the application using watch tables, the force table, and data traces.

By the time you finish this course, you will be able to create, structure, program and test your first Step 7 PLC application from scratch using a wide array of TIA specific skills and TIA best practices.

  • Steve: "I feel this course has great information to offer, not only to beginning programmers but also to experienced programmers that perhaps use a different controller. Please continue to offer courses as you do an excellent job of explaining the proper steps and structure to coding."

Complete with a Link to a 21-Day Free Trial Version of TIA Portal V15.1, downloadable TIA sample applications, checklists and other practical documents.  These sample applications and supporting documents will be a great help as we work our way through each lecture and concept - together.

Now it´s time to upgrade yourself and get started with TIA Portal!
