This training module covers all the course contents of level 1-2 and the HMI courses. It is designed to bring trainees to a point of mastery of automated systems. Experts with industry experience will take you through practical sessions and programming exercises.

This covers the following

  • Training materials and training certificates at the end of the training.
  • Software which would be installed on trainee laptops without an additional cost , but getting the software’s folders and license would attract additional charges.
  • Tea break for trainees.

  • Training Schedule:

  • Weekday Module: 2 Weeks
  • Weekend Module: 6 Saturdays
  • Time: 9am – 3pm daily

    Venue: ZIP AUTOMATIONS Office, 70 Queens Street, AlagoMeji Yaba, Lagos.
