The payment process can be done either with a PayPal account or a PDF invoice. Whether you are a private or a corporate customer, you can pay online using your PayPal account. Another option is to contact firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will then provide you with a PDF invoice, which you can pay via international bank transfer. Please note, for corporate customers with an EU VAT number, PayPal does not support VAT free payments. Therefore, if you don’t want to pay VAT, the only option is using a PDF invoice. This policy is introduced because generally, EU customers are subject to 24% VAT.
Another exception is university students and educational institutions’ attendees. Please send us your information and certificate of attendance to email@example.com in order to receive a 50% discount. After confirmation, we will provide you with a PDF invoice and login credentials.
After you complete the payment process, you will receive an email confirmation that you have been enrolled to the course. Now it is time to study!
The online course consists of four modules:
- OPC UA Introduction
- OPC UA Products
- OPC UA Use Cases
- OPC UA in Industry 4.0
Each module is divided into a number of chapters that include video lectures hosted by the experienced OPC UA trainer.
Below you can see an example of one of the “OPC UA Basic Models” chapter in Module 1.
At the end of every chapter there’s a question based on the video lecture presented by company’s instructor. These questions help you to check your knowledge, track your progress and ensure your readiness for the module exam.
