CCP182 | Essentials of Industrial Ethernet Networks for an OT Professional

August 31 @ 8:30 am - September 1 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Course Purpose
After completing this course, you should be able to:
  • Demonstrate understanding of basic Ethernet networking skills, terminology, and concepts
  • Apply these skills when performing advanced network specification, configuration, and troubleshooting tasks

In this course, you will learn how to verify communications between devices, recognize data transmission types, and differentiate between OSI Model Layer 2 and Layer 3 switching functions.

Who Should Attend

Operations technology (OT) professionals (such as control engineers) and others responsible for installing, configuring, and/or maintaining industrial devices on an Ethernet network should attend this course.


To successfully complete this course the ability to perform basic Microsoft Windows operating system tasks is required.

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 students’ learning experiences, the following materials are provided as part of the course package:

  • Student Lessons: 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.
  • EtherNet/IP Procedures Guide: Provides the steps required to complete tasks common to configuring devices to communicate over an EtherNet/IP network.
  • Cisco IOS Configuration Fundamentals Command Reference: Contains a comprehensive list of switch and router commands.
  • Using the Command-Line Interface: Part of the Cisco Systems Software Configuration Guide (Industrial Ethernet 2000 Switch). Shows more detailed breakdown of Cisco interface.
Hands-On Practice
Throughout this course, you will have the opportunity to practice the skills you have learned through a variety of hands-on exercises using an ABT-TDENET5700 EtherNet/IP workstation and Stratix® 8000 switch. Exercises focus on the skills introduced in each lesson.
Course Length
This is a two-day course.



Rockwell Automation is authorized by IACET to offer 1.4 CEUs for this program.
