Online Learning Platform

Learn about the exciting world of engineering and technology online and in practice. TechnoSmart247 aims to develop and expand the skill set of any person interested in working in a technical field through a carefully designed blended learning model. Currently, our primary focus is industrial automation (take a look at out Siemens LOGO! course) and we have teamed up with Siemens Solution Partner, Automation Works, to bring you a comprehensive logic controller course which combines remote online learning with practical implementation of theory. 

In the near future we intend to expand our courses to include further industrial automation courses and others fundamental engineering courses - keep an eye on our website for more information!

Automation Works

Wynand Kotze and Johan Reyneke from Automation Works in Swellendam identified the need for a PLC course for students, apprentices and technicians involved or interested in industrial automation. Together TechnoSmart247 and Automation Works created a course that teaches the principles and operation of the Siemens LOGO! 8 logic controller which is the perfect PLC for a beginner.
