PID - Live Hands on Virtual Certificate Training Course

InterConnecting Automation is proud to reintroduce a PID Training Course with the goal of taking the mystery out of PID!

You will spend three days (4 hours per day) in an intense class strictly devoted to PID function. No PLC Knowledge is Required! This course is geared around teaching practical PID Applications. We will focus on the general control loops used in industry. We will not be covering cracking atoms at 1500' below the surface of the ocean. (ha ha) We will NOT cover any advanced PID Topics (Feed forward, Cascading, etc).
