Produced in conjunction with The Fieldbus Center at Lee College, this 14-part training series is designed to train operators and technicians on FOUNDATION™ fieldbus systems. The first two programs can also be used as an introduction to help organizations learn about and evaluate the transition to fieldbus.
The Fieldbus Process Control series is designed for instrumentation operators and technicians as well as any employee whose work involves the operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting of fieldbus systems. The series is also an effective way for fieldbus device manufacturers to train their salesforce on fieldbus basics.
