Instructor Bio:

Dr. Robert Rice – Director of Solutions Engineering
Dr. Rice has published extensively on topics associated with automatic process control, including non-self-regulating processes and model predictive control. Prior to joining Control Station, Dr. Rice held engineering and technical positions with PPG Industries and The Walt Disney Company. Dr. Rice received his BS in Chemical Engineering from the Virginia Polytechnic and State University and both his MS and PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Connecticut.

We are a Strategic Training Partner for the Association for Facilities Engineering (AFE) and provide AFE members a 10% discount.

Note: Loaner laptops will be provided. We will be using laptops to work with the PID software specifically designed to help users with the process control training

Process Control Training

The Practical Process Control Training course (more than just a PID tutorial, will give you a firm foundation in Process Control and PID control tuning.

Receive hands-on instruction and gain the confidence you need to solve complex process control challenges. With real world examples and the PID control tuning simulation software, you will gain a clear understanding of the 'how and why' changing PID parameters effect the process. Take the guess work out of PID control tuning.

Top companies maintain their competitive advantage by maximizing productivity and minimizing costs - by optimizing and controlling critical processes. Training is an essential element in equipping engineers for success and achieving that advantage.

The Practical Process Control curriculum is how top companies empower their human resources and to maximize the return on their capital investments. Practical Process Control Training has helped process technicians and engineers to understand and apply innovative control techniques.

How do top companies like Holcim (US) (cement), Lafarge North America (cement), Honeywell (chemicals), Westinghouse Savannah River (power), ChevronTexaco (petroleum), Genzyme (biotech/pharmaceutical), and Owens Corning (chemicals) maintain their competitive advantage? Attend PID Control workshop and learn proven techniques that will improve your bottom-line performance. 

Control Station equipped my team with the training they needed to succeed. They kept [it] simple and straightforward, focusing on techniques that could be applied immediately on the plant floor” E&I Supervisor- Magnesium Elektron

Control Station’s ‘case study’ approach to teaching the subject was unique. Learning by doing helped me understand the topics as they were presented.” Process Engineer - International Flavor & Fragrances

I learned a great deal and I will recommend this workshop for all of our process staff.” Maintenance Manager  - Ash Grove Cement

This more advanced seminar is part of Business Industrial Network's Phase II Training (Phase I training is our PLC Troubleshooting course), and is also offered as On-Site Training. 

These process control  training courses, as with all of our training courses, are not just text book instructions but practical knowledge and case examples based on years of experience.

This course offer information your people will actually use out on the shop floor.
