Course description

Instrumentation, Controls and Electrical Systems Overview for Non-Electrical Engineers - ICE-21

This course provides an introduction and overview of electrical systems, instrumentation, process control, and control/safety systems typically encountered in oil and gas facilities. The focus is to understand terminology, concepts, typical equipment configurations, and common pitfalls in order to improve communication with electrical and I&C professionals. This course covers similar content to our E3 and IC3 courses, but at a more conceptual level. This course is not a prerequisite for taking E3 or IC3, but rather a replacement for those that are not able to take both E3 and IC3.

"The problems and the overall course documentation were both very good." - Facilities Engineer, United States

"I certainly feel more equipped to discuss instrumentation and controls than before." - Participant

Who should attend?

Process, chemical, and mechanical engineers, (i.e. non-instrumentation and non-electrical disciplines), as well as other technical and non-technical professionals with little or no background in IC&E systems. Electrical and Instrumentation Engineers should consider E3 and IC3 for more in-depth coverage.
