Below are a few samples of the “additional comments” written by our former students in their end-of-class surveys. We are still able to contact many of the students whose names are shown below and would be happy to put you in touch with them for reference purposes.
This is an excellent course no matter what skill level you are at. I've learned more here at Ron's class than any other one I have attended. (Andy Dover)
Your knowledge, skills, and methods are excellent. Thank you for the training and hospitality. (Russell Shaw)
This class gave me an understanding on how a PLC really works! Class always keeps you on your toes and interested. Ron Beaufort understands these things and can teach you how to also. Thanks for the help. (Blake Farmer)
Very informational! Clears up all the confusion and puts it in simple terms for anybody to understand. Not only does Ron's PLC class teach you about PLCs, it also teaches great listening skills! Thank you so much, Ron! (Jody Foster)
This course and instructor is by far the best training I've ever had. I've been an electrical technician for almost 20 years and only wish that I could have attended this course 20 years ago. (Billy Bond)
Ron teaches the class in a way that anyone can learn PLCs. This class is the best training I've ever had. I absolutely think this is the perfect PLC class. (Tray Baker)
This is an excellent class and I recommend it to anyone working with PLC-5. (Steve Morse)
I just want to let you know that I always appreciate and admire your teaching methods – from PLC Boot Camp, PID, and now the ControlLogix. All materials, hands-on training, lab assignments, and especially your unique and different teaching method were all informative, effective, and impressive. (Eddie Pineda)
This was a great course for getting us ready to transition to ControlLogix. I would have been lost without it. (Coury Clements)
Thanks for opening my eyes about how a real scan of a PLC works and cut through some of the unexplainable into explainables. (Chad Roddy)
I was on site for the ControlLogix course and found it extremely helpful that the classroom was set up with PLC-5 and SLC-500 as well. We used all three to give a strong basis for the ControlLogix and relate my previous experience. ... I have had 2 full weeks of training by [another vendor] on the SLC500 and learned more [with Ron] during the first day than I had in both of my previous weeks training classes. I ... have shortened my programming time drastically. Thanks, Ron. (Jason Bailey)
This course redefined all of my knowledge of PLCs. I would like to continue my education with this company. Ron is the best instructor I’ve ever met. (Darell Nettles)
This was the most informative, easy to understand instruction. Understanding the scan and how the processor thinks was the key to it all. ... Thank you!!! (Jason Cook)
Not only have I learned a great deal about ControlLogix, I am also better equipped to handle problems with PLC/SLC. This class sets the bar high. (Will Hanna)
Mr. Beaufort’s style of teaching by breaking complex ladders down into simple steps really helped me to understand PLCs and how they work. (Greg Bone)
When I arrived I had no idea what I was doing. I have learned more than I ever dreamed. Also I couldn’t believe how quickly the day passed. I was never bored. (Garry Reese)
This was by far the best PLC class I have ever attended. Class content covered more than I could imagine in five days. Excellent job. (Edward Kane)
Enjoyed the course a lot. Came in completely dumb to PLC logic. Leaving with a great understanding of PLC logic. (Craig Cox)
This course was well executed. The instructor made sure everybody understood the exercises and the theory. The many hands-on labs and repetitions help the content stick to the brain.
Thanks for your detection of my knowledge base and knowing where to pick up and carry further! Super job, many, many thanks! (Chip Watts)
Excellent instruction. I left feeling good and confident about what I had learned.
The course and the instructor were excellent. They exceeded my expectations in every respect. I look forward to attending additional courses in the future.
This course was well worth the price that was paid!
Totally enjoyable week. Best, most comprehensive course I’ve been to – ever.
The course gave me a better knowledge of Allen-Bradley PLC-5 than any class that I have ever taken. I hope to take refresher classes under Ron later on in the future. (Darrel Wadford)
This course was very educational. I believe you can enter this class with little or no PLC experience and when the class is complete, I believe you could do anything associated with RSLogix5.
Course content exceeded expectations. Hands-on element extremely helpful.
Very professional and committed to his work. Excellent. 4.0
School content and instructor = highest of markings! Made the most of the time that was allotted.
I have received more information from this class than I ever had in a training atmosphere. I enjoyed it and would like to take more classes in the future.
Ron Beaufort did an excellent job teaching this course. There was a lot of info to cover in five days and he took the time to answer all questions. The hands-on exercises were “top shelf” compared to other courses I’ve attended before! Good job!!
Fantastic instructor and course material! Mr. Beaufort has a way of simplifying complex material and explaining concepts in ways that are easy to understand and remember. He uses stories and experiences to help students relate classroom instruction to the real world and maintain interest.
This was the best PLC training class that I have ever attended. I thought that I knew a lot about PLCs and was proven wrong. A great learning experience. (Chuck Weatherford)
This course is worth every penny of the fee. I wish I had taken it a decade ago. (Chris Dowtin)
Ron’s course is the best one out there. He has opened a new world for me. (John Ponoski)
Ron teaches a great class. Of all the classes I have ever taken, I enjoyed this the most - and feel the most confident leaving the course that I will use what I learned. After 15 years of working on and troubleshooting PLCs, I finally understand them. (Dan McCarthy)
The training was well worth the time and effort. A lot of useful information. There was never a moment to relax – you always have to be on your toes. You think you have it down, but there is always something else coming. I took both SLC-500 and CLX-5000 and they were the best training classes I ever had. (Sean Maurer)
The most effective training I have ever had. (Roy Holwager)
During my 30+ years in the maintenance field I have attended numerous training labs. This is by far the best. Thanks. (Bill Gibson)
Ron is obviously very knowledgeable on the subject matter, but in addition to that, he is also very knowledgeable on how to effectively teach others and build teamwork. (Robert Tertocha)
Ron was excellent at covering the required material. What I appreciated the most was Ron's ability and flexibility to cover material not listed in the course curriculum. I have learned a great deal from this course. (James Crenshaw)
Searches on ControlLogix have never worked for me even with [another training vendor’s] course. Now I can use them. (Chris Denlinger)
Changed my way of looking at PLC logic. (Brian Gray)
Best class I have taken. (David Lewis)
One of the best (if not the best) instructors I have ever had. I really enjoyed the class. (Mark Edwards)
I stayed awake in this class. This is unlike any class I’ve taken. Better than college. I am a two-year electrical apprentice and have taken PLC classes before and this by far was the easiest to understand. Thank you! (Sheila States)
This class is the best training I have had in my 25 year career as an electrical technician. It really helps build your confidence level when working on or troubleshooting PLCs. (Chip Drew)
I have gained much valuable knowledge and I enjoyed the course! (Jack Malone)
Total night and day from walking in the door on Monday and walking out the door on Friday. This class will change my financial status by the knowledge it has given me. (Jeff Kiper)
Ron went way beyond the course topics and only limited what he taught to how much I wanted to learn. I enjoyed my time in the class and hope I get the opportunity to take more of his courses. (Brian Bradley)
Would like to at a later date take another class because it was so informative and I really enjoyed the class. (Lynwood Richburg)
Most enjoyable training I have attended. (Andy Nelson)
This course was put together very well and Ron's great understanding of the PLC made it very easy to learn. I'm hoping my employer will allow me to return for additional classes. (Jacob LaCroix)
Entering the class on Monday morning I was afraid that my lack of electrical experience and weak knowledge of signals would make it difficult to understand the PLC programming concepts. Ron was able to adjust the lessons to keep me engaged and make sure I had the foundations I needed to understand the lessons. I enjoyed the way that he was willing to go into greater depth on concepts that I found interesting. This depth made it easier for me to make connections into my understanding of computer science from college. (Brian Jahn)
Well equipped and well prepared. It is truly an experience to learn from someone who loves what he does. (Billy Magee)
Well pleased with the class. Learned more than I expected to. (Drew Fuselier)
I have thoroughly enjoyed this week. (Richard Speight)
Ron has an excellent handle on PLC operation. I would recommend his training to all who work with PLCs. Very sound instruction. (Anthony Cochran)
Excellent program. Ron’s teaching is unique and very helpful. He teaches what you need to know for PLCs. (Jeff Wilson)
Taking this ControlLogix class was like going down the path of enlightenment. Not only do you get a great understanding of ControlLogix, but the PLC-5 and SLCs as well. Ron doesn’t do himself credit by calling it a “technician’s” class. The only bad thing about it is if more engineers or integrators (the so-called “experts”) would take one of his classes, they would probably get their feelings hurt. (Dale Durst)
I loved this course and am so glad I came here to attend it. Wish I could stay on longer! I can say I’m now confident about AB PLCs. (Indrani Basu)
This is an invaluable tool. Regardless of experience level, Ron will enlighten you. (Greg Franklin)
