Training

Verwer Training & Consultancy Ltd can deliver standard or customised training covering modern fieldbus and Industrial Ethernet technologies (PROFIBUS, PROFINET, AS-i), Three-term (PID) controller tuning and implementation and open PLC programming systems based on IEC61131-3. We provide regular training sessions at Endress+Hauser’s training centre in Manchester.

All our training can also be delivered on-site at your company’s premises. Here the training can often be customised to meet the exact requirements of the customer. We can also incorporate hands-on sessions where trainees carry out a supervised health check or diagnostic check on the plant. Such on-plant activities really help to build the confidence of the trainees in using diagnostic and test tools in a real environment

All our training incorporates extensive hands-on activities, real examples (both good and bad) and extensive case studies taken from industry. Every two trainees share a set of training equipment. Depending on the level and branch of training you will also share a laptop computer and learn to set up, test and fault-find in a real network and/or control system and thus learn by doing.

Some of the comments that have been received from people who have attended training courses include:

“This course was definitely the best training that I have ever received in over 20 years in the industry.”

“I was really surprised at how much I learned in a day of training. I can’t wait to do the advanced course.”

“Excellent course; Andy really knows his stuff and can deliver the material in an interesting and practical way”.
