ControlLogix/Studio 5000 Logix Designer: Accelerated Logix5000 Programmer Certificate Level 1

Course Number - CCP250

Course Number - CCP250

Course Purpose

This accelerated course is for individuals who can quickly learn and apply Logix5000™ concepts, terminology, hardware, and the Studio 5000 Logix Designer® programming environment. You will quickly move from these early concepts to using producer/consumer technology and messages to multicast input and output devices, sharing data between controllers, and controlling remote I/O. This course prepares you for the Accelerated Logix5000 Programmer Certificate Course Level 1 certificate exam, which is included in the course price. Upon completing this course, given a functional specification for a Logix5000 application, you should be able to develop a project to meet the requirements. This course covers tasks common to the following hardware, which use the Logix5000 control engine or operating system:

  • ControlLogix® controllers
  • CompactLogix™ controllers

These tasks include creating a new project, programming an application, and adding advanced functionality (e.g., data arrays, add-on instructions, produced/consumed data, and messages) to the application.


Who Should Attend

Ideal course attendees are those who:

  • Are responsible for programming Logix5000 controllers using the Studio 5000 Logix Designer application
  • Need to learn how to draft ladder logic for any application

Curriculum Note: Along with new material and labs, this course contains lessons from courses CCP146, CCP151, and CCP143 – in an accelerated five-day format. Do not take all three courses in addition to this one.



To successfully complete this course, the following prerequisites are required:

  • Completion of at least one Rockwell Automation Logix5000 course in the last two years (course completed on or after 3/31/2016).
  • Pursuing a Logix5000 Certificate for Programmers.

Technology Requirements

All technology is provided for student use in the classroom by Rockwell Automation. It is not necessary for students to bring any technology with them when attending this course.


Student Materials

To enhance and facilitate the student's learning experiences, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:

  • Student Manual - Includes the key concepts, definitions, examples, and activities presented in this course
  • Lab Book - Provides learning activities and hands-on practice. Solutions are included after each exercise for immediate feedback.
  • Studio 5000 Logix Designer and Logix5000 Procedures Guide - Provides the steps required to complete basic software tasks common to all Logix5000 controllers. Following this job aid's procedures, you can immediately apply what you learn to your work.

Certificate Assessment

Access to the certificate assessment is valid for 90 days from the end of class and will be provided by email.


Hands-On Practice

Throughout this course, you will be able to practice the skills you have learned through various hands-on exercises. These exercises focus on the skills introduced in each lesson.
