Description

Have you ever wondered about getting a thorough introduction to the fundamentals of instrumentation, industrial automation and control; thus allowing you to work and perform simple tasks in this key area? In attending this workshop, this could be the opportunity to walk out with a great grounding in the basics of this exciting field which is rapidly changing the way all plants operate. The constant drive to cut costs means that as an operator you will be increasingly having to have more skills and know-how in the plant instrumentation and process control area.

This course represents a tremendous opportunity to gain expertise in all the key areas of the fast growing area of industrial automation. Presented by an expert in the area but who is passionate with getting the key chunks of know-how and expertise across to you in a simple understandable manner which you can immediately apply to your job. This is most definitely not a boring lecture style presentation but an intensive learning experience where you will walk away with real skills as a result of the hands-on practical exercises, calculations, case studies and group sessions to ensure an understanding of the concepts and ideas discussed. You will undertake practical sessions at approximately 20 to 30 minute intervals to maximize the absorption rate.

You will leave this workshop with a strong understanding of the key concepts in instrumentation, process control, SCADA and PLCs.
