Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 3: Project Development Course Description
Upon completion of this course, given a functional specification for a Logix5000 application, you should be able to develop a project to meet the requirements of the specification. This course covers tasks common to the following controllers, which all use the Logix5000 control engine, or operating system:
• ControlLogix® controllers
• CompactLogix™ controllers
• SoftLogix™ controllers
This course builds upon your knowledge of common controller terms and operation and your experience with basic ladder logic programming. This course presents a deeper understanding of project development tasks that are common to all Logix5000 controllers. Such tasks include organizing tasks and routines, organizing controller data, configuring modules, and sharing data. You will also use Producer/Consumer technology to multicast input and output devices, share data between controllers, and control remote I/O.
Who Should Attend
Individuals who need to develop Logix Designer projects for any Logix5000 controller should attend this course.
To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:
• Ability to perform basic Microsoft Windows tasks
• Knowledge of common controller terms and operation through experience or one of the following courses:
- Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 1: ControlLogix System Fundamentals (Course No. CCP146)
- RSTrainer for ControlLogix Fundamentals computer-based training (9393-RSTCLX)
• Ability to write basic ladder logic with common instructions, such as bit, timer, counter, move, and comparison instructions through experience or this course:
- Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 2: Basic Ladder Logic Programming (Course No. CCP151)
All technology is provided for student use in the classroom by Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary for students to bring any technology with them when attending this course.
Throughout the course, you will have the opportunity to practice skills you have learned through a variety of hands-on exercises. You will also have the chance to combine and practice several key skills by completing an integrated practice.
To enhance and facilitate your learning experience, the following materials are provided with the course package:
• Student Manual, which contains the topical outlines and exercises. You will use this manual to follow presentations, take notes, and complete the exercises
Student Materials (Cont.)
• Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Logix5000 Procedures Guide, which provides the steps to complete basic software tasks common to all Logix5000 controllers. By following the procedures in this job aid, you can immediately apply what you learn to your own job.
• Logix5000 Controllers Design Considerations Reference Manual, which contains guidelines for designing a Logix5000 application.
• Logix5000 Documentation Reference Guide. This searchable, electronic resource contains relevant technical publications and is a quick and efficient on-the-job resource.
Next Learning Level
This course is a prerequisite for the following courses:
• Studio 5000 Logix Designer Level 4: Function Block Programming (Course No. CCP152)

Desktop Metal Forum: Affordable 3D Metal Printing
Metal 3D printing has barely scratched the surface. More than 20 years after its introduction; it’s still too industrial and expensive for prototyping and it’s not fast enough to be used for series production. In response to these independent problems, Desktop Metal was created to change the way products are brought to market with metal 3D printing.
The NWIRC is pleased to host Cimquest for a presentation and open discussion about Desktop Metal’s affordable, safe and precise metal 3D printing solutions. Topics of discussion will include the process, materials and how this technology will impact how we prototype and manufacture metal parts.

September 14; 1:00 Program helps caregivers to understand dementia-related behavior.
During the middle stage of dementia, the person with the disease often starts to exhibit new behaviors that can be confusing for a caregiver. These behaviors are a form of communication, and are essential to understanding the needs of the person with dementia.
To help caregivers decipher behaviors and determine how best to respond, the Alzheimer’s Association offers the Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior program. By the end of the session, attendees will be able to:
Through practical information, resources, and interviews with experts, this program will help caregivers to address the challenges of dementia-related behavior.
The Know the 10 Signs workshop will focus on these key topics:
Understanding and Responding to Dementia-Related Behavior is appropriate for community presentations, corporate employee wellness meetings, support group programming and more.

FAFSA Completion: Step-by-step assistance in completing FAFSA
November 1; 3:00pm - 5:00pm or 5:00pm - 7:00pm. Held at the CEC. Please note: You must have your FAFSA ID & 2016 income tax
Students seeking federal or state aid for the 2017-18 academic year may complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), beginning October 1, 2017. The 2017-18 FAFSA will require financial information from 2016.
In advance of beginning the FAFSA, ideally three days, dependent students and their filing parent and independent students should create a Federal Student Aid ID (FSA ID) at www.fsaid.gov.
A different email address is required for both parent and student in creating the FSA ID. Only the owner of the FSA ID should create and use the account. Meaning, parents should not create their student’s FSA ID and students should not create their parent’s FSA ID.
For the FAFSA completion workshop, students and the filing parent should have their FSA ID usernames, passwords and challenge (security) questions’ answers readily available.
To complete the FAFSA, you need to provide information from several types of documents. We recommend you gather this paperwork before you begin the FAFSA to save time and to make sure you complete the FAFSA correctly.
First, identify what type of student--dependent or independent—you are.
