Course description

Instrumentation and Controls Fundamentals for Facilities Engineers - IC-3

This course applies fundamental instrumentation and control engineering principles to oil and gas facilities design and operation, and is designed to accelerate the development of new Facilities Instrumentation and Control Engineers.

Through the use of individual and group problem solving, attendees will learn about field measurement devices, valves and actuators, documentation, programmable logic controllers, power supplies, PLC, SCADA, DCS, SIS, hazardous areas, and installation methods.

Who should attend?

Facilities and Project Engineers as well as newly graduated Electrical, Controls and Instrument Engineers (0-5 years) with a need to improve basic understanding of instrumentation and control systems within oil and gas facilities.
