Answer: MyPLCGuy courses are sequential, and each course is designed to continue to the next. It is recommended to start at either the PLC Taster, specifically for those wishing to see what the course style is and to decide if they wish to continue, or PLC Introduction, for those who are comfortable with their basic knowledge and are willing to get started immediately. From there each course will follow to the next. You can go to the end or finish where you feel comfortable. Course content becomes increasingly complex as you progress.
