Effective maintenance of an Integrated Automation platform requires that staff providing maintenance have the prerequisite technical skills and knowledge to provide 1st line support.
Prerequisite skills should be based on the Application and require that staff have a technical understanding of the Process and the Products that provide control within the application.
Standard Product courses allow for skills transfer on a specific product, but maintenance and operational staff has to know how this product fits into their Integrated Automation plant environment.
It is for this reason we pride ourselves in offering a service that addresses the needs of technical employees to acquire the skills needed to offer effective 1st line maintenance.
We make use of the following process to ascertain the skill gaps of maintenance staff when measured against their respective KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators).
Application Equipment Audit
Required to ascertain the technical products in the C&I environment
Understanding of Technical Staff KPI’s
Needed to understand the skills requirement for 1st
Training Needs Analysis
One-on-One interview with staff to ascertain skills gaps.
A training plan showing maintenance courses to be attended to address skills gaps
Attendance of Training as per Development Plan
Staff attend maintenance courses which can be arranged as classroom courses off-site or on-site
Assessment of Maintenance Course Attendees
All course attendees are assessed after each maintenance course.
Once course delegates are declared competent a Certificate of Competence is provided.
The maintenance courses we offer cover the following disciplines:
- Programmable Controllers (From Basic to Advanced)
- HMI (Operator Panels)
- Variable Speed Drives
- Ethernet Training and Troubleshooting
- Fieldbus Training and Troubleshooting
