Our review

**Overall Course Review**The online course in question has garnered a global rating of 3.10 out of 5, based on recent reviews from its participants. The feedback indicates that while the content is generally well-received and considered good for those familiar with Structured Function Blocks (SFC) programming, there are notable issues with the presentation of the course material. These primarily revolve around the clarity of the instructor’s English language skills, both written and spoken, which are seen as areas that require significant improvement. Additionally, some learners have pointed out specific issues with grammar in the instructions provided and suggest that visual aids such as pictures or examples would greatly enhance the learning experience. The course’s price point on Udemy is also a point of contention, with some users feeling that the quantity of content does not justify the cost.

**Pros:**

– **Valuable Content for SFC Programmers**: The course material is deemed valuable for individuals looking to transition from ladder logic to SFC programming. It provides a foundational understanding of SFC.
– **Practical Application**: At least one reviewer has noted that the course helped clarify confusion regarding SFC logic blocks when viewed as ladder diagrams on PLCs, indicating practical application in real-world scenarios.
– **Direction and Understanding Provided**: The course is short but has been described as interesting and helpful in providing direction and understanding for those new to SFC.

**Cons:**

– **Language Issues**: There are significant concerns regarding the clarity of the English used in both written and spoken communication within the course. It is suggested that improvement in these areas would greatly benefit the learners.
– **Grammar and Instructions**: Some instructions contain grammatical errors, which can be distracting and potentially confusing for students. It is recommended to correct these issues and provide clearer guidance.
– **Presentation of SFC Symbols**: The physical orientation of SFC symbols is presented vertically, which differs from the standard horizontal display in logic diagrams. This could lead to confusion among learners accustomed to traditional ladder logic representations.
– **Price vs. Content Quantity**: Some users feel that the course is overpriced for the amount of content provided, especially when considering the competition on platforms like Udemy.

**Additional Feedback:**

– **Need for Visual Aids**: Learners suggest that the inclusion of pictures or real-world examples alongside the instructions would greatly improve comprehension and engagement with the material.
– **Manual Reference**: The course emphasizes the importance of referring to manuals, which is a valuable piece of advice for students working with SFC in practical settings.

**Conclusion:**

The course presents a solid introduction to SFC programming but needs improvement in presentation, particularly in the area of language and clarity. Despite these issues, the content is still beneficial for those looking to understand or improve their knowledge of SFC. The course could be significantly enhanced with improved language precision, additional visual materials, and adjustments to the orientation and representation of SFC symbols. Additionally, re-evaluating the pricing structure in relation to the content provided would likely make it more appealing to potential learners.

More Than 4k STUDENTS!!! THANK YOU!!!

What students are saying:

Raymond Franz says, “Very complete coverage of the topic.”

Welcome to this course.

This course will take you to a new level of PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) Programming. It will be a fun, easy, fast, and enjoyable programming journey for you.

You will no longer hate programming PLCs.

As most of you know, writing code or Ladder logic diagrams is a complex process that requires thorough understanding of Ladder Diagrams and other languages to turn your idea into a project based on PLC. But what if I tell you that now you can program your PLC and make a fully functional project without writing a single line of code?

That’s not all. After drawing, this program will give you the ability to view your code, and it will be ready to be downloaded to your PLC.
