The technology world is booming. Fantastic jobs are available and in the Netherlands, machine building is operating at full capacity. Companies are desperate for young PLC or robot programmers like you, so you have plenty of opportunities. But AWL is not just any employer. Our training possibilities mean that you are never done with learning. One of these training courses is the “100-day program” of our own PLC and robot academy. Here, apart from PLC, you don't learn to program just one robot brand, but various different robot brands such as Kuka, Fanuc and ABB.

In just 100 days

In spite of all the attention for industrial automation, training a trainee programmer to the level of independent programmer often took two years, and that is where we saw a challenge! We faced that challenge with success: AWL now teaches you to program a PLC or robot in 100 days.

Renco went before you

''From an early age, my interest lay in the technology world, with autonomous installations and machines in particular. During my study "Industrial automation" I became acquainted with both the factory automation and process automation industry. After working in process automation for several years, I wanted to make the switch to the other side; factory automation. The choice for AWL was easily made. AWL is a leading high-tech company with ambition and growth potential that invests in its people, what else do you want? A good example of investing in people is my onboarding period. I have followed the 100-day program at AWL where AWL teaches you all the basics and product-specific know-how with personal guidance and exemption from project implementation. I was able to program PLC in 100 days A perfect start in a new working environment.''
