UK Profibus expert to train Australian engineers

The Australian Profibus Association will be hosting Certified Profibus training courses in Perth and Brisbane commencing 31 March 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 one day Certified Profibus Installer Course 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 covers PROFIBUS network design, commissioning and live fault-finding, and it is aimed at 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.

The courses commence:

-Perth: 31 March

-Brisbane: 14 April
