Control Valve TrainingCourse Program

FINAL CONTROL AND REGULATEControl ValvesLEARNINGPATHAt the foundation of any process are thefield devices that measure and control theflow of air, steam, water, gas or hundredsof other materials. Without proper basicsetup, calibration and configuration ofthese devices, advanced controltechniques cannot provide the levelsof efficiency the technology is capable of.Knowledge of process control deviceswithin a plant is often passed down fromgeneration to generation. At the sametime, if advances in process technologyand methodology usually brought aboutby training aren't brought into the plant,in-house standards for device setup andmaintenance can become based onout-dated theory. The result is that whilea valve or instrument may be working, itmay not be working up to its capabilitiesand is not delivering on its promisedperformance.Educational Services has made aglobal commitment to helpingour customers find and keep thatpromise of performance.2Regional Training Centre:Our regional training centres are strategically located to support you training needswhen and where you need it. We can host factory certified training courses in Control Valve Engineering and Maintenance.We utilise cutways and samples to provide course attendees with hands-on experience, one-on-one time with instructors, and a facility tour. Individuals can attendcourses at any of our regional training centres or participate in one of the schools weconduct at a local sales or service office.On-site, Local and Customised TrainingWe offer on-site training subject to availability of dedicated classroom facilities andsuitable workshop locations so we can maintain the same high standards of education at site. Our organization is available to work with you in defining the appropriatesubject matter and right approach to satisfy your training needs. Each year individuals participate in classes tailored to their particular needs and conducted locally or attheir plant.Being able to develop customized courses for our customers; allow us to provide youwith targeted training that really works for you.Consider on-site training if: You need to train several people at once You need training focused on a specific process or issue unique to your organization You’re looking for an alternative to sending employees off-site, incurring expensivetravel and lodging costs

Control ValvesFINAL CONTROL AND REGULATELEARNINGPATHVocational training covers the basics and fundamentals but if the plant personnel do receive hands on experiencewith the measurement products the initial knowledge begins to fade over time. Emerson has identified a series oflearning paths to help close the gap in plant knowledge and to enhance the on-the-job skills that have been learntover time.Valve Engineer9000Introduction toProcess Control1710Instrument Technician I1300Control Valve Engineering I1350Control Valve Engineering II1400Valve Technician I1450Valve Technician II7036FOUNDATION fieldbusFIELDVUE Digital ValveControllers1751Fundamentals of HARTBased FIELDVUE DigitalValve Controller using the475 Field Communicator1752ValveLink Software forFIELDVUE DigitalConfiguration and Calibration of Valve Controllers1752ValveLink Software forFIELDVUE DigitalConfiguration and Calibration of Valve Controllers1759AMS Valve Link Softwarefor Diagnostics ofFIELDVUE1759AMS Valve Link Softwarefor Diagnostics ofFIELDVUE7022Valve Maintenance withFIELDVUE Digital ValveController3

FINAL CONTROL AND REGULATEControl ValvesThe twin forces of advancing technology, exemplified by the rapid acceptance of FIELDVUE digital valve controllers,and the merging of the valve and instrument technician crafts in many plants are making control valve educationmore important today than ever before. These interrelated trends necessitate higher levels of education on the partof those responsible for valve maintenance and operation.Introduction to Process ControlControl Valve Engineering IControl Valve Engineering IICourse: 9000 CEUs: 3.2Course: 1300 CEUs: 3.2Course: 1350 CEUs: 3.2OverviewOverviewOverviewThis Fisher course is for students that have This course is for engineers, techniciansand others responsible for the selection,little or no process experience.sizing, and application of control valves,actuators and control valve instrumentaThis course provides those new to thetionfield with the basic, overall fluid processcontrols knowledge they need to betterThis 3 day course reviews design andunderstand the function ofautomatedcontrol loops.

Courses for valve and instrument technicians explain what’s required to maintain modern control valves and demonstrate the skills necessary to do that job effectively. These classes are very structured, but students have plenty ofopportunities to practice newly learned skills and receive feedback from experts in the field. The goal is to reduce thenumber of poorly operating control valves throughout industry in order to enhance processing and reduce downtime.Valve Technician IValve Technician IIInstrument TechnicianCourse: 1400 CEUs: 3.2Course: 1450Course: 1710 CEUs: 3.2OverviewOverviewOverviewThe 41/2 day course provides an expanded and holistic view of control valveperformance objectives and issues.
