Produced in conjunction with ISA – The Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA™) – this nine-part training series will help students understand the principles and concepts of process control. The series also introduces symbols, diagrams, connections, and basic troubleshooting.
The Basic Process Control series is designed for control systems technicians, electricians, mechanics, process operators, and other instrumentation and control professionals. The courses are particularly helpful for technicians preparing for ISA's Certified Control Systems Technician® (CCST®) program.
eLearning courses included:
