About


12476616_10206911274437186_1426871185_oHi, my name is Stephen Gates. I am the creator of myPLCtraining.com. I really enjoy industrial automation and especially Allen-Bradley PLCs! I I created this website to help YOU learn about PLC programming and industrial automation. I am working hard to provide you with QUALITY free and paid content that will help you achieve your industrial automation goals (by the way, if you want to get started with some free training right away check out my FREE Mini PLC Course).

I graduated in 2011 with a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from Missouri University of Science & Technology. Since graduation, I have worked as an engineer at small family-owned electrical switchgear business. One of my main responsibilities has been to program industrial automation devices such as PLCs to automate switchgear, generators and substation switches. It has been a very fulfilling career with lots of challenges and opportunities to learn and help customers with unique problems. Recently, I received my Professional Engineer’s License in Nebraska.

When I’m not working, I love hanging out with my wife and other family and friends. I enjoy playing guitar, singing and writing songs. I am a Christian and enjoy reading God’s Word (the Bible) and working on building His kingdom.

I appreciate you stopping by my website and truly hope that you find the resources to be beneficial to you! You can get in touch with me by emailing me at stephen@myplctraining.com.
