Edmonton, Canada (PRWEB) June 14, 2009
The OPC Training Institute [http://www.opcti.com , the world's largest OPC training provider, announced that it will present the online webinar: Benefits of OPC Training, for instrumentation, engineering, information technology, and automation professionals, on June 30, 2009.
"Just because you're using OPC, doesn't automatically mean you'll be able to face all integration challenges," says Randy Kondor, president of the OPC Training Institute. "There's an apprehension about using OPC that stems from a lack of familiarity and even misinformation concerning its use and benefits."
During the 45 minute online webinar, participants will find out how OPC can increase plant productivity, as well as advance their careers. The webinar will highlight the benefits of OPC training to help avoid project delays and cyber-security vulnerabilities. Sessions will be available in three time zones for the convenience of participants located in the Asia-Pacific, European, and Americas regions. Registration is online at [http://www.opcti.com/webinars.aspx .
Research shows that while OPC is a reliable technology, projects that depend on OPC fail on a regular basis. "It's people that make the difference, and they must be qualified for the job," says Randy. "To ensure project success, plants should entrust OPC responsibilities to qualified people. One means of differentiating abilities and competence is through the attainment of appropriate certifications."
The Certified OPC Professional (COP) designation is awarded to people who have demonstrated their proficiency with OPC technology, design, architecture, and installation.
