This study aims to evaluate the implementation of the Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) training conducted by HMPS Comet. Evaluation is carried out using the Kirkpatrick method which consists of 4 levels, namely: level 1 reaction, level 2 learning, level 3 behavior, and level 4 results. Levels 1 and 2 are carried out when the activity takes place, level 3 is carried out after the implementation of the training, namely during class learning activities, and level 4 is carried out about the value of learning outcomes. The instrument used to evaluate levels 1-3 is a questionnaire with a scale of 1-5, while the instrument for evaluating at level 4 uses a test, namely the posttest. The results obtained from the evaluation that has been carried out at level 1, level and level 3 show good results. The results at level 4 indicate that students participating in the training have improved their learning outcomes.

Keywords – evaluation, 4 levels, Kirkpatrick, training, PLC.
