Course Description

Process Control is the second module of the Process Engineering for Control Practitioners Certificate Program or can be attended as a stand-alone course. It is 100% Online.

This course is intended for those who want to learn not only about the basics of Process Engineering but also more advanced concepts in a condensed time frame and from a practical point of view and/or for I&C practitioners who simply want to communicate technically with Process Engineering personnel. The program is designed to provide attendees with sufficient knowledge to implement I&C technology correctly. It is applicable to technical and supervisory personnel. It is presumed that participants come from a setting where they can apply the knowledge received.
