More groov EPIC graduates for the class of 2023

Posted by Janice Colmer on Jun 28, 2023 12:02:03 PM

Opto 22 welcomes another full class of students for the June 2023 groov EPIC Premium Factory Training class.

Are you looking for in-person, classroom PLC training? Or do you need help configuring and programming hardware and software for your industrial automation or IIoT application? Our groov EPIC Premium Factory Training course is for you!

The latest group of 12 students complete the program this week. They now have new knowledge and skills to apply to their own applications when they return home. 

This month we have a few local visitors, but students also made the trip from as far as Texas, New Mexico, Alabama, Maryland, Florida, Washington, and the Carolinas. They're spending 4 days immersed in the groov EPIC system—learning all its features, capabilities, and programming options.

See what's included when you sign up to learn about groov EPIC - the Edge Programmable Industrial Controller.

When you're not learning new technologies like MQTT, Node-RED, Ignition, or CODESYS, you'll also be treated to some great lunchtime meals, and you can even play a quick round of golf on the putting green during break time.

You'll also get a personal tour of Opto 22's factory and see how and where groov EPIC is built. Here's this week's class in the middle of their up-close and personal look at Opto 22 headquarters.


There are also plenty of sights to see in Temecula, CA while you're not in class. Make the most of your visit!

What do previous class attendees think of the training? Here are some recent comments we've received:

"Great class overall! The Ignition Edge/MQTT/Modbus set up was fascinating."

"It was great, all of the instructors did wonderfully and made hard concepts palatable for a broad audience."

"The training was well done with great instructors who were energetic, helpful, and excited."


Take a look at the 2023 training class schedule, and register to attend one of the 5 remaining classes we're hosting in 2023.

Your four-day groov EPIC System Premium Factory Training includes:

  • Hands-on instruction for the groov EPIC system (Edge Programmable Industrial Controller). Just as the acronym describes, you will learn how to collect, process, view, and exchange data at the edge, explore new programming options, and use industrially hardened equipment to control applications in real time.
  • System components and configuration, networking capabilities, diagnostics, troubleshooting, and communication methods that you can apply to your industrial automation application to build solutions for the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
  • Breakfast snacks and full lunch every day
  • Opto 22 T-shirt
  • Duffel bag with gifts inside

Prerequisites: Students must have a working knowledge of Microsoft Windows, but no prior Opto 22 knowledge is required.

Class starts with lunch on Monday at 12:00 noon and instruction starting at 1:00 p.m., through 5:00 p.m. On Tuesday and Wednesday, class starts promptly at 8:00 a.m. and ends at 5:00 p.m. Thursday's class starts at 8:00 a.m. and ends with lunch served at 12:00 p.m.

Each class is limited to 12 students and costs $995 per seat. See Class Details for the complete course description. Some course topics you can expect: 

  • Select, install, and connect hardware and field devices
  • Initialize and configure the groov EPIC processor
  • Create control programs and choose programming functions

We hope to see you soon!
