What You'll Receive With Your Purchase

What You'll Learn and Receive


Learn to confidently setup, program, and connect the Siemens Unified Basic Panel and Unified Comfort Panel with this Online Course.

You don't need to spend thousands of dollars and several days in a classroom to learn how to setup, program, and connect the Siemens Unified HMIs to your Programmable Controllers. All you need is some basic PLC and Windows knowledge, a Windows PC, and our affordable Unified Basic and Unified Comfort Panel Online Course!

Our Unified HMI Online Course is perfect for electricians, technicians, and engineers who already understand PLC Basics, and now want to learn how to setup, program, and connect Siemens Unified HMI's to the S7-1200 and S7-1500 PLCs from Siemens.

Taught by a factory certified product specialist with over thirty years of experience, in this course you will learn everything you need to know to get started using these HMIs with confidence.

Unlike other vendor's courses that only become available after you purchase their expensive hardware or trainers, our course doesn't require you to purchase ANY hardware of software as we show you how to get a FREE trail copy of the Siemens TIA Portal Unified WinCC and Step 7 PLC Programming software, which also includes FREE HMI and PLC simulation that can be used to complete the optional exercises included in this course.

And for those who'd prefer to learn using a physical HMI and S7 PLC, we cover which Siemens Starter Packs are available at the time of the release of this course. We even provide you with an overview of every Unified Basic and Unified Comfort Panel available currently.

Unlike other companies whose job is done once the sale is complete, we're committed to your success and actively encourage students to post questions in the lesson discussion area, where our expert instructors review and answer them within one business day on average.

We also invite students to come back and retake any lesson and post additional questions as they come up, which is possible since none of our course come with an expiration date.

And when you finish your course and pass all the quizzes, you're rewarded with an official Completion Certificate from The Automation School that lists the Professional Development Hours you've earned by completing all of the required course content.
