Local Instrumentation setting & Calibration

Modern industry relies on accurate measurement and control of process parameters to ensure high quality products are produced safely and efficiently.   Technicians, working in the Process and Pharmaceutical Industries are involved in the installation, configuration, calibration and maintenance of measurement and control systems.

This course is designed to give participants the knowledge required to operate in such environments and it will introduce industrial instrumentation as used for troubleshooting, process measurements and process control.

This training course uses both conventional and non-traditional techniques. It utilises small group and facilitated plenary discussions as well as instruction to explore key concepts, models, tools and techniques. Hands-on exercises and case studies are used to practice the application of knowledge and use of skills. Structured reviews provide the opportunity to consider how the learning can be applied to the delegates’ own work.
