Practical Process Control Training Workshop - PID Control


Business Industrial Network
After great success in St. Louis, this PID Troubleshooting 2 day course 
"Practical Process Control" is now being offered as one of our
Atlanta industrial manufacturing seminars. Your process control manager should
send at least two engineers to the Atlanta training, as this PID training is
second to none in the process control industry. 


This Atlanta industrial seminar approach to training is simple: focus on the
application of formulas rather than on their derivation. With examples from
real world industrial manufacturing processes and the PID control tuning
simulation software, you will gain a clear understanding of the 'how and why'
changing PID parameters effect the process. It takes the guess work out of PID
control tuning.

Practical Process Control Training Workshop - PID Control
Atlanta, GA. Schedule: Oct. 4-5, 2006  

Top companies maintain their competitive advantage by maximizing productivity and minimizing costs - by optimizing and controlling critical processes. Training is an essential element in equipping engineers for success and achieving that advantage.


The Practical Process Control curriculum is how top companies empower their human resources and to maximize the return on their capital investments. Practical Process Control Training has helped process technicians and engineers to understand and apply innovative control techniques.

How do top companies like Holcim (US) (cement), Lafarge North America (cement), Honeywell (chemicals), Westinghouse Savannah River (power), ChevronTexaco (petroleum), Genzyme (biotech/pharmaceutical), and Owens Corning (chemicals) maintain their competitive advantage? Attend PID Control workshop and learn proven techniques that will improve your bottom-line performance. 

Control Station equipped my team with the training they needed to succeed. They kept [it] simple and straightforward, focusing on techniques that could be applied immediately on the plant floor E&I Supervisor- Magnesium Elektron

Control Station s case study approach to teaching the subject was unique. Learning by doing helped me understand the topics as they were presented. Process Engineer - International Flavor & Fragrances

I learned a great deal and I will recommend this workshop for all of our process staff. Maintenance Manager  - Ash Grove Cement

These process control  training courses, as with all of our training courses, are not just text book instructions but practical knowledge and case examples based on years of experience.

The Atlanta training also comes with Free PID software demo, handouts and a copy of Practical Process Control by Douglas J. Cooper. 

This course offer information your people will actually use out on the shop floor. 

Be sure and read PID Instructor's (Dr. Rice) articles on our site.
