Endress+Hauser and ISA offer extended training services
Endress+Hauser’s Process Training Units to host ISA certified training courses starting fall of 2021.
Endress+Hauser and the International Society of Automation (ISA), a non-profit professional association for leaders in industrial automation, announce their current and future collaboration efforts for training and certification. ISA will provide select certified training courses in conjunction with Endress+Hauser’s instrumentation training courses, with these courses offered onsite at Endress+Hauser’s Process Training Units (PTUs) located across the U.S.
Combining strengths for advanced offerings
With the goal of advancing training of process industry personnel, Endress+Hauser has designed and built 11 PTUs across the United States. These full-scale, working process units offer hands-on experience with the configurations, operations, diagnostics, and troubleshooting found in real-world process plants. With this strategic collaboration, ISA brings advanced expertise in controls, valves, drives, and other areas outside the Endress+Hauser portfolio.
Adding value to the industry
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Endress+Hauser and leverage the strengths of our respective organizations,” says Geri McGrath, director of global education and outreach at ISA. “The combination of Endress+Hauser’s PTUs and ISA’s training services offers increased workforce development opportunities for industrial automation and control professionals.”
Additional offerings for a tailored approach
Endress+Hauser and ISA have co-developed an online assessment tool for customized training. Designed for convenience and ease-of-use, the assessment generates a report highlighting personnel strengths and knowledge gaps for an organization. This online tool is being developed according to ISA’s CCST Body of Knowledge, and will be offered through the ISA and Endress+Hauser websites in 2022.
