1) How do AB PLCs differ from the 'standard' of PLC programming; design in Ladder Logic, build in emulator/communication software, upload to PLC?
2) How could someone gain experience with AB PLCs when their company does not do much in-house automation design, and only uses Omron PLCs on the rare occasion that a PLC is added to a project?

A possible source of training might also be your local vendor. Mention that you would like to do a comparison between the Allen Bradley product line and the Omron PLC. Most of the time, they will offer to give you a demonstration and may actually offer to leave you a demo unit for a few days. We recently made the switch to Allen Bradley, and I was amazed by how much the vendors were willing to do while we were in the decision stages. It certainly can't hurt to ask.
