Since I released my comprehensive ControlLogix Training Course (PAC Basics) last year, I've been receiving a lot of requests for a course covering the Allen-Bradley CompactLogix line of small Programmable Automation Controllers.

With that in mind, over the past month as I've been renovating my home studio I've also been acquiring the hardware needed to film a brand new course on the CompactLogix, which I'm calling “Compact Basics.”

In the past I had already purchased an L1 and Studio 5000, and recieved an L23 donation from an awesome customer.

To those, I've just added a brand new 5380 via Rockwell's affordable “Experience Kit,” as well as a small “self-assist” TechConnect.

I've also been able to find some affordable “recycled” 1769 parts, and a 5370 processor as well.

With all the new hardware on it's way, and my home studio renovation nearly done, I thought I'd put together a “pre-order” sale for anyone interested in CompactLogix training who'd also like to save over 70% off the final course price.

That sale is live now at, and it runs through the end of this month (through October 31st.)

I should note that all pre-orders will not only receive “Early Access” to the course when I start publishing lessons next month, they'll also receive “Lifetime Access” to the full finished course when it is completed (as well as any future expansions or upgrades.)

So if you know someone who'd like to get CompactLogix Training at an unbelievably great price, please tell them about my pre-order sale over at
