UEEIC0031 – Set Up And Configure Human-Machine Interface (HMI) And Industrial Networks

HMI – SCADA Course (Human Machine Interface And Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition) – DARWIN

You will need access to a computer with Windows operating system. You can also use the computers at our facilities



This HMI training course is ideal for electricians, electrical maintenance personnel and design engineers and those who want to familiarise themselves with Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and automation technologies used in building, construction and industrial automation.


The main focus of the HMI course is to equip the participant’s knowledge and understanding of the integration of HMI (Human Machine Interface) and PLC Using NS5 PT.

This unit covers the setting up and configuring of human-machine interfaces and industrial networks for process control systems to meet performance standards. This encompasses the adoption of process control schemes that meet safety and process requirements, selection of control equipment and interconnecting cabling and tubing/piping based on calculated and deemed-to-comply arrangements.

Ausinet, as a Registered Training Organisation (RTO), recognises the Australian Qualifications Framework qualifications and Statements of Attainment issued by any other Australian RTO. You are encouraged to submit requests for credit from previous studies when enrolling to ensure that you are not enrolling in units you may not need to undertake. If you have completed units at other RTO and you think they may count towards the award requirements of the course you are enrolled in at Ausinet, submit an official copy of your results for the units you have undertaken. Credit transfer may fast-track your course.


Recognition of prior learning also referred to as RPL, is the formal acknowledgement of a person’s current skills and knowledge experience gained throughout life – regardless of how they have been acquired.

This is an important assessment pathway, particularly for working people who are considering doing a course. The recognition gained may considerably reduce the study time needed to get a qualification.

The RPL assessment may include workplace observation, interviews and professional conversations, work samples and documented evidence.
