As adoption of digital technologies expands throughout the process industries, there is a corresponding need to train plant personnel on the use of these advanced control solutions. A need for consistent adequate training around the world has led to the creation of certified training centers. A school or university that has qualified as a Field Certified Training Program (FCTP) means that your training is taught at a Certified Training Site, by a Certified Instructor, using Certified Curriculum. Through the FCTP program training sites, curriculum, and instructors are all audited to ensure they meet stringent requirements, including maintaining multiple host systems and field devices onsite in order to demonstrate competence across all vendor solutions. They must also demonstrate to auditors that their course material adheres to set instructional standards.
FCTP ensures that you are working with someone possessing a strong knowledge of FOUNDATION technology principles; a consistent understanding of fieldbus fundamentals and a proven ability to implement fieldbus-based control systems. Beginning automation students are able to identify colleges, universities and other facilities offering a certified FOUNDATION educational curriculum. After graduating, they will be able to present official FCTP certificates to potential employers. Existing automation professionals completing certified courses can expand their job skills and employment value within their companies.
