Description

This is 3-1/2 day training program with an examination on the last day
Course number C201 (24 PDH hours upon completion of entire course)
The "Certified PROFIBUS PA Engineer" course is a world wide recognized training program. It is standardized by PROFIBUS International to create a quality platform for PROFIBUS qualified persons who are acknowledged by an official exam. The Standard Certified PROFIBUS PA Engineer course is an intensive hands-on and theoretical 4-day training program. On the last day there will be an exam. The final examination consists of three parts:
• Multiple choice questions
• Segment calculation
• Practical work

Certification: Upon successful passing of the final examination (70% of the max. number of points); the participant will receive a certificate and the right to bear the title "Certified PROFIBUS PA Engineer." All successful participants will be listed on the official PROFIBUS homepage.

The advantages of fieldbus products are recognized by most industries and the technology has been adopted in many applications. The use of fieldbus technology asks for a different approach with respect to defining, designing and realizing a PROFIBUS installation. The success of an implementation depends on an integral approach, based on knowledge and experience. Cost savings throughout a plant life cycle from planning, commissioning to maintenance. The training is designed to let the participant gain more knowledge of the PROFIBUS technology with all its features, to be able to select the correct components for application and installations, to be familiar with implementing instruments in a correct way as well as commissioning and trouble-shooting.
