*Limited space available: Registration will close 7 days prior to course date. Cancellation must be done 7 days prior to course date. If you have any questions please contact Leah at firstname.lastname@example.org
*This is a 2 day course, with limited registration*
Process Control Techniques 2 continues to build on the strong foundation covered in Process Control Techniques 1.
You will be able to analyze and solve complex control applications. The extensive simulation labs cover some of the most common and readily applicable control strategies available.
You will also take home spreadsheet tools that can be directly applied to your current process control challenges. Process Control Techniques 2 will help you help your plant
graduate from simple operability towards profitability.
