Undergraduate control courses teach theory. Graduate control courses 
teach more theory. Vendors provide training on their products.

Consider the alternative:

Learn the basics of practical control engineering with these unique
combinations of lectures, simulation and hands-on experimental
laboratories in a four-day intensive training course with one of the
world's foremost process control groups.

This is the first call for registration in the following two short courses:


May 18-21, 2010

Process Control Boot Camp-Level 1: Basic Process Control including
hands-on laboratory exercises on tuning and monitoring. The main focus
will be on:

- Tuning for regulatory and setpoint tracking

- Statistical process control

- Process and Performance Monitoring

- Project economics and management


May 25-28, 2010

Process Control Boot Camp-Level 2: Advanced Process Control with main
focus on MPC including identification and constrained multivariate
control. Contents include:

- Fundamentals of univariate and multivariate model-based control

- Process modeling and system identification

- Constrained control and optimization

- Performance monitoring and maintenance


Space is limited. You are encouraged to apply early. Feel free to
distribute this freely to all interested personnel in your organization.

etc. is available at:
