The Instrumentation Program at New River Community College provides "hands-on" training and education in required skills along with the theory to master the responsibilities of an instrument and controls technician. The program also provides the foundation for on-the-job training and other career challenges in the instrumentation and control automation field. In keeping with current demands for instrumentation technicians, the faculty of the Instrumentation program now teach the basics: flow, temperature, pressure, level, and calibration as well as more advanced principles including wireless control. Also taught are SCADA, HART, ABB Robots and Foundation Fieldbus for DCS systems, and DeviceNet using control logix PLCs and building HMIs with RSView to be used on PanelViews.
