March 29, 2011
Siemens Industry Inc. announces the opening of its expanded Process Instrumentation and Analytics Learning Center in Houston, enabling the company to provide more hands-on educational courses in the fields of process instrumentation technology and applications to its customers in North America.

The Houston area serves as an important base of operations for Siemens‘ process analytics and process instrumentation measurement solutions as the area is home to a wide variety of industries, including oil and gas, chemical and petrochemical, facilities management, food and beverage, water/wastewater, power generation, and mining, cement, and aggregates.

“Our learning centers are an important part of our strategy to provide customers with high-quality service, and ensure that each has the necessary knowledge base and training to maximize efficiencies from their Siemens products and solutions,” says Todd Gardner, vice president of sensors and communications for the Industry Automation division of Siemens Industry Inc. “The addition of these courses, taught by field-proven and experienced trainers, is an extension of Siemens commitment to maintain its role as a market leader in the field of process instrumentation.”

The course material offered ranges from two- to four-day courses in the subjects of level management technologies, field instruments, flow technologies, clamp-on flow technology, and industrial communications.  With the addition of simulated workstations, the courses offer a well-rounded and practical learning experience through a mix of hands-on training, theory and applications understanding.

Siemens Process Instrumentation and Analytics now has three training facilities in the U.S., with the majority of courses now being offered from the Houston facility. Other sites include Hauppauge, NY, which has an emphasis on clamp-on flow topics, and Spring House, PA.
