Kepware’s training program is designed to address the specific challenges unique to users’ automation environments. Courses can be customized based on the trainees’  levels of expertise, location, application, and industry requirements. The labs and training material cover core concepts, such as OPC standards, client/server communication, and connecting to a PLC or device, as well as more advanced subjects like communication optimization and diagnostics.
