?????? DO YOU KNOW SOMEONE ?????????

You may be aware of an engineer, a designer, a technician, a sales person, a maintenance person, an operations employee, or someone who needs training and education to answer some questions that are integral to our field of automation, instrumentation and control.  They need to plan on attending this very beneficial course on May 2 -4, 2017, to be held at KBR, 3000 Galleria Towers, Suite 1400, Birmingham, AL, 35244.  Go to:  


What is the best way to measure level in a liquid storage tank?  What is the difference between flashing and cavitation in a control valve?  Do you need derivative control for all loops?  Where do you mount a pressure transmitter measuring steam pressure?  How do you establish the upper and lower range values for a process variable measurement?  When is the best time to use open loop tuning for a loop?  What are the advantages of programmable automation controllers?  Which are the best features of field bus systems? 

These are just a few samples of the topics that will be covered in the ISA Birmingham Section/Auburn University 47th Annual “Fundamentals of Industrial Automation, Instrumentation, and Control” training course to be held on May 2 – 4, 2017, at the offices of KBR Engineering in Birmingham.  You may know someone who can benefit from this three day instructional course and improve their value on the job.  Also, this course is an excellent way to obtain the continuing education credits or professional development hours (PDH) needed for certification or license renewals.   This is a great class for anyone who is preparing for the Control Systems Professional Engineer exam.
