SITRAIN access at a glance

The digital learning services provided by SITRAIN access cover a range of topics relating to the Siemens product portfolio and help ensure greater transparency: Learners know how far they have progressed, what knowledge they still need, and the best way to obtain it. Companies get an overview of the level of knowledge their employees have reached, and can propose or assign further suitable courses . All learning content is structured on a modular basis and can be utilized as you see fit after you subscribe: Several hours at a time, or just a few minutes on the way to work – the choice is yours.

  • Users purchase an annual subscription and thus gain access to all learning content on the platform.
  • Learning content as explanatory videos (WBTs), screen recordings, PPTs, blogs and expert talks.
  • Intermediate tests and exercises document the learning progress and create transparency for learners and managers.
  • Course participants and Siemens experts network and exchange their knowledge within the course groups or via personal messages. 


  • Users will receive individual course suggestions based on job profiles, skills, learning paths and AI algorithms.

Virtual Exercise Lab – Your personal exercise environment

Applying what has been learned is an essential component for a sustainable learning success. For this reason, SITRAIN access offers a corresponding amount of exercises in our courses. With Virtual Exercise Lab the practical application is now possible in the virtual world:

  • No additional software or hardware needed – thanks to the fully equipped virtual exercise workplace consisting of engineering software (e.g. TIA Portal), simulated hardware (e.g. S7-PLCSIM) and process model (e.g. Factory IO).
  • Individual and protected environment – thanks to the sandbox approach, errors or experiments have no effect on a real system. Save and load your exercises as often as you want.
  • High-performance access from anywhere, anytime – thanks to cloud technology, only an internet connection and a browser are required.

Two hours of access to Virtual Exercise Lab are included with your first SITRAIN access subscription.
