The objectives of this research were 1) to create a programmable logic controller training set, 2) to assess the quality and application of the training set and trial worksheets by experts, and 3) to determine the efficiency of the programmable logic controller training kit. The sample group included 30 students taking bachelor’s degree in electronic engineering and automatic control system. The research process involved the creation, quality assessment, and efficiency finding of a programmable logic controller training set and trial worksheets. The data were statistically analyzed using mean, standard deviation, and percentage. The output of this research was a programmable logic controller training set, an experimental worksheet for designing and connecting various control circuits. The results showed the characteristics of a programmable logic controller training set using PLC to control the display lamp, number light bulb, motor rotation direction control, pneumatic system, and 10 experimental worksheets. The training set input and output devices were optimally sized for easy portability and can be used in practice to cover the skills content in the taught courses. The results of the quality assessment (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 4.55, S.D. = 0.26), the usability quality (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 4.52, S.D. = 0.22), and the quality of trial worksheets (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 4.52, S.D. = 0.22) were all very good. The overall quality of the training kits was very good (gif.latex?\bar{x} = 4.53, S.D. = 0.23). The efficiency of the training set, both the practice set and the worksheet when applied to the learner group, was 83.90/84.74 which higher than the criteria 80/80 and the research hypothesis.
