Certified PROFIBUS Installer

The Certified PROFIBUS Installer is an essential course for electrical engineers and technicians requiring skills in the installation and testing of complete PROFIBUS networks.

This course provides theoretical and practical training in PROFIBUS network technology using a hands-on approach. In most projects certification is a requirement for companies who are engaged in fieldbus installation. Certified PROFIBUS Installers are the first step to achieving reliable and trouble-free networks.

The Certified Installer course takes 2 days (including the exam). After passing the exam, the participant gets the title 'Certified Installer' and will be officially registered.
