ISA Training and Education Programs for June and July

This education & training roundup was compiled by Joel Don, ISA's social media community manager.

Throughout the month of June, Houston will be home to an intensive educational experience designed to meet the automation and control community’s needs for comprehensive technical training in a highly condensed format. Technical Training Camp classes focus on the practical application of knowledge and skills. This is an opportunity for industry professionals to expand their abilities and experience in automation engineering and safety.


Do you work for a system integrator? Do you support client projects? Do you need to expand your skills in working in a project design or commissioning environment? ISA’s Automation Engineering Survival Training – Integrator Version (AESTIV), designed specifically for system integrators, focuses on concepts important to automation engineers and others involved in a project design and commissioning role.
