more links found in video1, video2, video3.

5. Codesys:

codesys is a function block editor platform used widely for mid level to higher end PLC and also for few DCS applications. Learning Codesys provides unfair advantage for engineers who have little or less field exposure. this tutorial will help wade through the subject.


PLC training videos online for amateurs.


Some of the courses present online for PLC/DCS of various levels of expertise.
