The PROFIBUS Association of Australia will host Certified PROFIBUS training courses in Perth, Brisbane and Sydney commencing 25 August 2008.
Two internationally recognised PROFIBUS courses — Certified Installer Course and the Certified Engineers Course — will be conducted by Andy Verwer, Principal Lecturer, Department of Engineering and Technology at Manchester Metropolitan University in the UK.
The 1 day Certified PROFIBUS Installer Course is an accredited one-day course and covers the layout, installation and testing of Profibus DP and PA networks. Course intake is limited to 12 people per group and is suitable for all engineers and technicians involved in the planning and installation of fieldbus networks. The course focuses on PROFIBUS and no previous knowledge of fieldbus systems is required.
The 3.5 day Certified PROFIBUS Engineers Course is an accredited course covering PROFIBUS network design, commissioning and live fault-finding.
The Engineers Course is for engineers and technicians who already have a basic technical knowledge of PROFIBUS or other fieldbus systems. Completion of the Installer Course, or similar accredited course, is a pre-requisite.
This hands-on course covers the detailed theory of PROFIBUS DP network operation. On the course, participants will learn first-hand how to design, install and troubleshoot PROFIBUS DP networks, how to use diagnostic tools to detect faults and identify their causes.
The courses commence: Perth: 25 August 08, Brisbane: 1 September 08 and Sydney 8 September 08.
