Instrumentation conference addresses technology training, development
An upcoming conference at the Fieldbus Center at Lee College will address issues in technology training and development for instrumentation personnel. The event, to be held in Clear Lake, TX, Aug. 17-18, will focus on the impact of training across the entire plant automation field, from new digital technologies to conventional instrumentation and process control systems.
Conference is a response to the apparent growing shortage of personnel trained in the latest instrumentation technologies. “In the coming years, industrial manufacturers will face a significant and inevitable challenge: keeping pace with the accelerating retirement rate for today’s experienced technicians and operators,” said Chuck Carter, center director. “The control and instrumentation field can remain strong only by enabling the education of tomorrow’s workforce.”
The program will examine the role of education and technology instruction in meeting the needs of plants, factories, research facilities, and related industries. Anyone involved in training the instrumentation workforce is encouraged to attend. The center is requesting input from the instrumentation industry on conference discussion topics, white papers, presenters, and sponsors. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org .
