ISA to conduct 20 automation and control short courses in August
July 10, 2013 - To help automation professionals quickly ramp up their technical knowledge, the International Society of Automation (ISA) will be conducting 20 automation and control short courses at its North Carolina headquarters training location over five consecutive days this summer, from Monday, 29 July to Friday, 2 August.
In addition to accelerating the learning process, this special ISA short-course event will enable automation professionals to gauge their need for additional training in a variety of areas, and investigate more in-depth and comprehensive ISA course offerings and related resources.
“We believe this five-day instructional event will meet the needs of many in the automation and control community,” says Dalton Wilson, ISA’s manager of Education Services. “If you have never taken an ISA course, this event provides a great opportunity to take one or more ISA courses in a very short period of time, fitting within busy summer schedules and limited training budgets.
“We’re making it easy and convenient to brush up on skills, learn new ones, and explore more intensive ISA training offerings—recognized throughout the world for expert-driven content and real-world application.”
Plant and automation managers, Wilson adds, also are encouraged to attend as the event allows them to research a variety of technical training options they may want to consider for their employees.
A networking reception with light refreshments will be held each evening (Monday-Thursday) after class for students and instructors. All courses will be held at ISA’s headquarters location in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA.
Course topics include measurement and control, boiler control systems, industrial wireless systems, OPC, batch control, flow measurement, SIS, SCADA systems, project management and the ANSI/ISA88, ANSI/ISA95 and ANSI/ISA99 set of standards.
Founded in 1945, the International Society of Automation is a leading, global, nonprofit organization that is setting the standard for automation by helping over 30,000 worldwide members and other professionals solve difficult technical problems, while enhancing their leadership and personal career capabilities. Based in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, ISA develops standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; and hosts conferences and exhibitions for automation professionals.
