Hello,

after some feedback from my students I’ve finally invested time and energy to create this EPLAN beginner’s course. Only the essentials, only EPLAN (no design this time).

If you’re into learning the basics of EPLAN, the essential functions and sections to be able to create some decent circuit diagrams in EPLAN then you’ve come to the right place.

It doesn’t matter whether you are a total beginner with EPLAN and electrical design or you are already an accomplished electrical designer and you just want to experience what does it mean to design in EPLAN, you will find this course an interesting starting point into EPLAN and into Electrical Design field.

Or you might be a company owner / freelancer and want to see if EPLAN is worth investing your time and money to incorporate it into your design standards – this course will help you decide.

 

I originally planned to keep this course under 1 hour of length, but then, while I was filming the lectures I realized that anything under 2 hours would not be fair to my students, and that’s only to show you the basics 😮

 

So, without further ado, check the free preview videos and if you like what you see, enroll and let’s start the journey!

 

See you in the course.

 

Yours sincerely,

Ivan
