Emerson Digital Classroom Trains Next Generation

31 July 2020

Emerson recently launched a new Digital Classroom, a virtual training facility that connects students with Emerson experts, who train them on a wide variety of field instrumentation and automation control technologies. In addition to enhancing collaboration among peers, the approach allows customers to tailor their training programs to their budgets, schedules and travel constraints, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Using a new, purpose-built audio-visual studio at the Emerson facility in Dubai, certified instructors broadcast lessons over a dedicated high-speed network across the Middle East and Africa, to either a customer’s site or Emerson training facilities in Iraq, Nigeria, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and Angola, depending on current quarantine restrictions. Students at these facilities follow along with multimedia presentations and participate in live, interactive hands-on training sessions featuring real process equipment. 

In addition to hands-on demo sessions, the Digital Classroom program will offer theoretical training in a number of courses and webinars covering field instrumentation, measurement, final control, process control, safety systems, reliability, digital solutions, IIoT strategies and more. With the virtual instructional approach, Emerson is better able to meet the range of diverse learning styles in the workplace and ensure that both new and experienced personnel can easily update their skills as technologies and market demands change over time. 

Emerson Educational Services courses have been approved by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET). Students who complete Emerson courses are eligible to receive continuing education units for programs that qualify under the IACET standards.
