Quick Question _ Have you ever had a PLC programmers job?

How many have never had a PLC programmers job?

Just a basic survey, I am sure Vlad would also find this helpful to know.


I believe it’s a mix of people on the forum/site.

I was lucky enough to have landed a PLC programming position without knowing what a PLC was and never looked back. I was sent to a few Rockwell training sessions, by the time of which I knew more than what was thought, and really enjoyed the challenges of creating things.

It’s a field that pays well, has reasonable work expectations and plenty of room to grow and expand as you progress.


I began in maintenance and gradually moved into an electrical controls engineer position. Even though I went to college for electrical engineering, PLCs were not covered at all really, just touched on, and that is being generous.

Working in maintenance for a while to grow my knowledge and develop hands on skills benefited me greatly and has allowed me to be a better controls engineer.


Good morning people, am new to programming
