“We are ideally suited to address this growing market challenge,” shared Dr. Bob Rice, Control Station’s Vice President of Engineering. “We have a long history of both innovating and educating, and the latest additions to our eLearning offering provide further proof of those capabilities.”
Control Station’s expanded training and skills development offering focuses on proven techniques and industry best-practices for assessing process dynamics and tuning PID controllers. For many practitioners the task of tuning a production facility’s regulatory control systems remains a mystery. While repeatable methods have been established through practical application the automation industry has not established a standard procedure for testing, modeling and optimizing of PIDs. The company’s newest web-based courses both clarify the theory behind the PID controller and demonstrate the practical application of tuning best-practices.
Control Station has extensive experience delivering highly interactive training and skills development workshops in the traditional instructor-led format. The Company’s curriculum has been expanded over the years to cater to the needs of Operators, Technicians, and Process Engineers. It has also been customized to meet the unique information needs within major process industries ranging from Petrochemicals and Power to Food & Beverage and Basic Materials. Much of the curriculum’s expansion has been facilitated with the direct input of leading process manufacturers, assuring the highest degree of segment-specific relevancy.
The Company’s offerings include both theory-based and application-based training components. These services fully complement Control Station’s award-winning array of software technologies that are used to monitor and optimize controller performance. In addition to broad use among commercial users, the Practical Process Control curriculum is licensed annually by hundreds of colleges and universities worldwide.
