    Your technicians, engineers, and interested parties will attend a one-hour training session featuring a bootcamp-style video on PROFIBUS and PROFINET, followed by interactive, practical exposure to these technologies.
  • Expert Access
    Participants will have full access to our expert Profi-Engineers for questions, plant discussions, and additional insights. Multiple sessions will be conducted throughout the day to accommodate everyone’s availability.


  • Attendees at ProfiDay will receive fundamental training on both PROFIBUS and PROFINET protocols.
  • They will gain hands-on experience with industry best practices, testing tools, and network components.
