'Distinguish yourself from the others and show that you are the expert…..Become a Certified PROFIBUS Engineer.'


The 'Certified PROFIBUS Engineer' course is a world wide recognized training program. It has been founded to create a quality platform for PROFIBUS qualified engineers who are acknowledged by an official exam.

The Certified PROFIBUS Engineer course is an intensive hands-on and theoretical 4-day training program. On the last day there will be an exam. After passing the exam, the participant gets the title ‘Certified Engineer' and will be officially registered.

The Certified PA module takes 2½ days and is fully concentrated on PROFIBUS PA. It is only accessible for people who have passed the standard Certified PROFIBUS Engineer course.

PROFIBUS plays a primary part in industrial automation and in most cases Certified Engineers are the only ones who can carry out the project. Through the valuable Certified Engineer status, companies and its employees can distinguish themselves from the other companies who are involved with this technology.
