Fieldbus Foundation offers three locations and dates in North America: Calgary, Houston, and Philadelphia.

04/19/2012


The Fieldbus Foundation has announced its schedule for training workshops around North America for the balance of 2012. The organization characterizes these as geared toward taking the mystery out of Foundation fieldbus and making end users and systems integrators realize the true lifecycle benefits of the technology. The curriculum aims at helping new users contemplating their first fieldbus project, experienced veterans trying to get the most out of an installation, or a system integrator that wants to implement fieldbus successfully. Support from sponsoring companies allows these seminars to be offered at no charge.

• Calgary, AB; TELUS Convention Centre, May 23, 2012
• Houston, TX; location TBD, September 12, 2012
• Philadelphia, PA; TBD, November 28, 2012

The seminars use a combination of live demonstrations and presentations from technology experts. Dave Lancaster has helped implement countless Foundation fieldbus projects around the world, and is one of our certified instructors at Trine University in Indianapolis, IN. Chuck Carter is our lead instructor at the Lee College fieldbus training center in Baytown, TX. John Rezabek of Ashland Chemical is chairman of our end-user advisory council and has years of experience using Foundation fieldbus on a day-to-day basis.

All attendees receive professional development hours (PDHs) for attending and a 10% discount certificate on all regularly priced training at any of our North American certified Foundation training centers or centers of excellence.

Seminars are typically 8 am to 4:30 pm and include free lunch and morning and afternoon breaks. Walk-up registrations are accepted. Finalized agendas will be posted within two weeks of the event. Hard copy registration is available by emailing or faxing the registration form to marketing@fieldbus.org (fax: 512-794-8893).

Annual Salary Survey

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.

There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.

But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
