Distributed Control Systems Certificate of Achievement

Ongoing

Credential: Certificate (non-credit)
Available: Continuing Education Classroom

Canada-Alberta Job Grant This program is eligible for Canada-Alberta Job Grant funding.

Program Description

This program provides hands on training in the principles and design of computer-based distribution or process control systems (DCS/PCS). Review of input measurement devices and output control devices is necessary as these devices are used for operation of the level process skids/carts. Device networks (Foundation Field Bus, Device Net, Modbus, etc.) are also covered to ensure students have the skills required for typical DCS/PCS installations.

The program offers theoretical and practical training primarily based on an Emerson's Delta V control system wired to real process equipment. Labs include building all the logic and graphics for proper operation and tuning of the flow and level loops on the process skids/carts. Each student uses their own configuration/operator workstation to develop configuration and graphics.

Upon completion of the program, students can pursue a career in various industries that monitor and control processing facilities such as power plants, pulp mills, oil producing and refining plants, and chemical processing plants.
