Fieldbus Training Course for Instrumentation Sales Professionals


Location: Lee College, Baytown, Texas
Dates: Dec. 9, 2005;
Feb. 24, 2006, and
May 19, 2006


The Fieldbus Center at Lee College—a National Science Foundation (NSF) recognized and funded institution—has introduced a first of its kind course: Fieldbus for Sales Professionals.

Who should attend?

The certified, one-day program is intended for controls and instrumentation sales professionals—inside and outside, as well as service representatives—who need a general understanding of Foundation fieldbus technology. No prior digital control system experience is required.

Why should you attend?

Content includes:

  • Basic fieldbus-related facts and terminology as well as resolution of common technology issues will be addressed;

  • Differences between digital control systems and traditional instrumentation will be described;

  • Cost-effective integration of fieldbus into project bid packages will be explained; and

  • Participants will learn how to justify expenditures on fieldbus controls as well as answer customer questions about returns on technology investments.

The course offers a vendor-neutral perspective on key aspects of fieldbus technology, but can be customized to highlight specific supplier solutions or product features.

The new course is part of the Fieldbus Center’s comprehensive training curriculum covering digital control technology.
