Defence: Automation Training
Training around operating and maintaining control systems, understanding PLC programming methodologies and skills to fault-find and problem solve.

The three Hobart Class Air Warfare Destroyers (AWDs) under construction in Osborne, South Australia, will be some of the world’s most capable multi-purpose warships.
The Royal Australian Navy (RAN) requires the crew to be able to effectively operate the electrical control systems on-board the AWDs. Up-to-date training in maintenance and programming of PLC control systems is essential.
PLC training enables crew to identify and solve faults, while a specialist understanding of the electrical control systems results in effective communication with external maintenance providers.
AWD Alliance contracted SAGE Automation to deliver the PLC training as a component of the wider IPMS Maintenance Course for RAN crews. This program was delivered in two parts: a generic and a specific course.
This is the second time SAGE Automation has worked with the Alliance to deliver PLC training for the AWD Project.
