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.

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

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

Atlanta training for the process control industry

After great success in St. Louis, this PID Troubleshooting course  "Practical Process Control" is now being offered as one of our Atlanta industrial manufacturing seminars. Your process control manager should send at least two engineers to the Atlanta training, as this PID training is second to none in the process control industry. 

This Atlanta industrial seminar approach to training is simple: focus on the application of formulas rather than on their derivation. With examples from real world industrial manufacturing processes and the PID control tuning simulation software, you will gain a clear understanding of the 'how and why' changing PID parameters effect the process. It takes the guess work out of PID control tuning.

This PID training course has helped process technicians, maintenance, and engineers to understand and apply innovative control techniques. With a focus on hands-on training, this process control training allows you to put new concepts to the test and to develop new plant optimization strategies. With an industry orientation, we accelerate the learning process and help your company realize a rapid return on its training investment.

This PID training can also help you stand out and advance your manufacturing engineering career. Through the University of Connecticut, participants earn valuable credits toward a continuing education certificate. By successfully completing the course, they gain valuable knowledge and prepare for greater opportunities.

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 training also comes with Free PID software demo, handouts and a copy of Practical Process Control by Douglas J. Cooper. 

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