The practical application of improved control can have a significant impact on process performance. In many processes it can double profitability. Course delegates will learn not only the importance of the technology but also how it is applied. Successful implementation depends also on the awareness of others of the benefits and the efforts involved in installation. The courses are of value not only to those directly involved in implementation but also to process management and other technical support groups who have responsibility for maintaining and improving process profitability. Delegates would include control engineers, process engineers, mechanical engineers, instrument engineers, instrument technicians and plant supervisors.

The courses stress the practical application of basic and advanced control techniques, using the minimum of control theory. They comprise a number of relatively short classroom sessions each followed by more lengthy 'hands-on' work. Delegates work in small groups on a process simulated on a PC. Following the course, Whitehouse continues to support the client, providing advice on the implementation of technology and in project execution.

Course Modules

Whitehouse offers a wide range of course modules that can be configured to deliver training lasting a few days to that lasting several weeks. While Whitehouse's preference is to present its courses face-to-face, it has successfuly run most of its modules on-line. It also regularly customises shorter webinars to meet specific client needs.

Training Software

Delegates retain the course software for long term use. The courses are intensive and the software provides an effective reminder of the techniques covered. It can also used by clients to support internal courses.

Course Tutor

The course tutor, Myke King, has over 40 years experience in the practical application of process control. His early career was spent with ICI and Esso. For almost 40 years he has been an independent consultant working for many of the world's leading companies. He has taught process control to over 2,500 engineers. Course delegates have the opportunity to discuss, with Myke, application of the technology to their own process. Most are able to return to their plant and make an immediate impact on its performance. Myke can similarly offer advice on how larger projects should be progressed and which vendors and technologies should be considered.
