CSIA Boot Camp is an intensive two-day session designed to help system integrators prepare for the certification audit. To become CSIA Certified, control system integrators must join CSIA and demonstrate through an independent audit that they have implemented the association’s best practices for business management.

Because audit preparation is a company-wide endeavor, identifying an internal champion to lead the effort is recommended. The audit leader and other key personnel will benefit most from attending Boot Camp.

“The Boot Camp offered me an opportunity to really dive into the best practices specifically as they relate to the key audit points. The course walked you through in detail the expectations for each section and having folks there who could help to explain each point was very helpful,” said an attendant from last year’s Boot Camp.

CSIA Boot Camp will be held in conjunction with the ISA Automation Week at the Orange County Convention Center, Orlando, Fla. To learn more about CSIA Certification and to register for the event, visit the CSIA web site, www.controlsys.org
