Communications Training Courses


Create and capture real-time and historic trend data

Comms Training
Our Industrial Communications training courses will introduce the relevant concepts, terminology and standards and offer extensive practical configuration of any communication system adopted across your site. This includes proprietary and open communication systems. The learning outcomes are derived from your specific requirements guided by our certified engineers. Wherever practicable, we can utilise your software, installation standards and practices to replicate working systems in the training room thus allowing your or your personnel to hone their skills on configuration and maintenance.
