The Australian Profibus Association will be hosting accredited Profibus training courses in Sydney and Perth in October 2007, for engineers in the food processing, packaging and other industries.
By implementing Profibus architecture into a food processing plant, an engineer will be able to monitor what is happening throughout the production process, predict and identify conditions that may have caused variability in the output, and maintain and/or rectify the process before a problem occurs.
Two internationally recognised Profibus courses — the Certified Installer Course and the Certified Engineers Course — will be conducted in Sydney and Perth by Andy Verwer, principal lecturer at the Manchester Metropolitan University’s Department of Engineering and Technology in the UK.
John Immelman, of Endress+Hauser, will manage the course seminars.
The Certified Profibus Installer Course covers the layout, installation and testing of Profibus networks and is suitable for all engineers and technicians involved in the planning and installation of Fieldbus networks.
The Certified Profibus Engineers Course is a more advanced course that covers the Profibus Network Design, commissioning and live fault-finding, aimed at engineers and technicians who already have a basic technical knowledge of Profibus or other Fieldbus systems.
