Foxboro, MA (PRWEB) October 18, 2006
Invensys is offering 23 different training workshops and tutorial sessions on December 7th at the 2006 Invensys Process Systems North American Customer Conference. This high-value training will be provided at no additional charge for registered conference attendees. Invensys Learning Services will award Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to participants who complete any training workshop or tutorial session, thus helping to support individual professional development requirements.
“Operating plants today face constant change, increasing pressure, cost-cutting, restructuring, and tougher performance measures. In addition, most plants today are suffering from a shortage of critical technical know-how caused by the retirement of baby boomers,” commented Peter Teo, director of Invensys Learning Services. “These training sessions are focused on helping operating plants mitigate this loss of knowledge or skills. We’re also very pleased to be able to offer – in conjunction with the Department of Homeland Security and Idaho National Laboratories – a full day course on control systems security. This hands-on, intermediate-level course is structured to help students understand how attacks against process control systems could be launched and why they work. The course, which is limited to 40 students and is therefore likely to fill up quickly, will also provide mitigation strategies to help increase control system cyber security.”
