Engineers wishing to build their careers around PROFIBUS, companies wanting to benchmark their technical staff or consultants seeking a recognised professional qualification in industrial networking can now train for Certified PROFIBUS engineer status at a short course to be offered at The PROFIBUS Competence Centre at Manchester Metropolitan University. Already a proven success in the USA – take a look at the list of current PROFitech graduates on the PROFIBUS Web site at www. profibus.com – this three-and-a-half day course satisfies the growing demand for engineers with proven qualifications in networking for industrial applications. The course deals with the theory of PROFIBUS network operation, the installation, hook-up and connection of networks and the troubleshooting of networks. It contains both theoretical and practical portions with supplemental training with multiple master devices. Successful completion entails passing a written exam and a practical test to become a "Certified PROFIBUS engineer". Prerequisites for attending are:
industrial automation background (PLC programming and/or experience with fieldbus systems);
familiarity with basic communication terms and features;
an understanding of RS 485, repeaters, addressing, etc.
