Siemens TIA Portal – PLC Programming Basics
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.”

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.”
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
We start the course with an overview of the sample application that we´ll use throughout our lectures. Then we will create a new TIA project, set up the PLC and we will add input & output modules to the hardware configuration. Afterwards, we will go over the steps of structuring the application into smaller, logical modules, and building global data blocks using user-defined data types.
With these basic skills mastered, we are going to create function blocks for the different modules of our sample application and we are going to add ladder logic to them. We will put a lot of importance on using TIA best practices while building function blocks and adding logic to them.
Finally, with the application code complete, we´re going to download the application to a Siemens SIMATIC S7-1200/1500 PLC. I will walk you through the steps of editing logic online, monitoring/modifying code and data, and troubleshooting an application online using force tables, watch tables and data traces.
At the end of this course, you will be able to create, structure, program and download 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.
