Emerson launched its first Middle East and Africa (MEA) Education Centre for measurement instrumentation, located in its Dubai headquarters. The centre enables Emerson to provide an immersive, hands-on learning environment in field instrumentation, analyser and metering technologies with face-to-face and virtual training companies in the Middle East and Africa to upskill process automation engineering and maintenance workforces.
The centre provides solutions that help customers upskill their process automation engineering and maintenance workforce through an innovative training approach based on their specific needs. It has the capability to offer both conventional face-to-face and virtual training, enabling Emerson to continue supporting its customers during these unconventional times of limited mobility and social distancing.
“The facility will strengthen Emerson’s virtual capabilities by connecting to customers’ production sites, facilitating remote collaboration and training,” said Mounir Taleb, MEA vice president of Emerson’s measurement solutions business. “The education centre enables Emerson to aid customers in enhancing the skills of their current workforce and adapting to the latest measurement and flow technologies.”
The education centre includes a modern facility offering a collaborative environment that nurtures learning among participants, by providing full access to software and control systems from any location. It also provides virtual, instructor-led courses that resemble a live classroom experience with the convenience of remote accessibility.
Emerson Educational Services has been approved as a provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and authorised to offer IACET continuing education units for its programmes that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standards.
