Basic Instrumentation & Control Course

Basic Instrumentation Training will start by providing maintenance and engineering personnel with a review of instrumentation technologies, terminology, and symbols needed to work in the field. Understanding P & ID’s and basic wiring techniques will be covered along with instrument outputs. Students will be exposed to a variety of instrumentsincluding; Level, Flow, Pressure, Temperature, and Control Valves. Students will participate in a troubleshooting work shop and conduct loop check outs. The class will be a combination of classroom and hands-on training on the TriNova Process Training Unit, a full-scale, working process skid with online instrumentation and controls.
