Emerson has opened new education facilities at its Solutions Centre in Aberdeen. Training and competency assessments will focus on the installation, operation and maintenance of automation technology especially for oil and gas applications.
Aberdeen/Scotland – The expansion provides for a range of training courses and competency assessment programmes, enabling engineers and technicians to enhance the automation technology skills required to maximise the operational performance of the assets on which they work.
“North Sea operators are increasingly looking to achieve more from existing assets, and by upskilling their workers it is possible to maximise the potential of installed automation technology and create operational performance improvements,” said Mark Boyes, Business Director Scotland at Emerson Automation Solutions. “Our new education facilities in Aberdeen provide training that will help engineers and technicians working in the industry maintain and enhance the skillsets needed to drive long-term efficiency improvements today and in the future.”
Emerson Automation Solutions has a portfolio of products installed across the oil and gas industry and a matching portfolio of training courses combining product training with the principles and methodologies required to work on an integrated process system. Gaining the greatest advantage with today’s integrated measurement, control and safety systems requires the most up-to-date skills. Emerson's Educational Services helps shorten the learning curve and keep skills tuned so customers can operate their plants most efficiently.
