Who should attend

This course is intended for all instrumentation and control engineers, process control engineers, electrical engineers, consulting engineers, design engineers, operations managers/engineers, maintenance engineers /supervisors, control system application engineers, project engineers, operations technicians, plant engineers and it personnel.

About the course

Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) refers to the combination of telemetry and data acquisition. SCADA encompasses the collecting of the information, transferring it back to the central site, carrying out any necessary analysis and control and then displaying that information on a number of operator screens or displays. The required control actions are then conveyed back to the process.

This course is designed to provide SCADA and industrial networking personnel with a thorough grounding in the principles on which their operating environment is based, including discussion on developments in supporting technology. The course will appeal to people newly involved in the field, professionals in related disciplines and operations personnel and managers.

Course Objectives
