Yokogawa training courses accredited for CPD points
October 2015, News, Training & Education


Yokogawa South Africa has announced the accreditation of its training courses by the Society for Automation Instrumentation Measurement and Control (SAIMC), for Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points for registered professionals of the Engineering Council of South Africa (ECSA).

For the first time in Yokogawa’s 100-year history, field instrumentation and control systems training courses offered by Yokogawa South Africa have been evaluated and accredited by a professional body. It has been a lengthy process of six years to reach this important milestone which was spearheaded by Yokogawa’s service training manager, Nico Marneweck. “We believe that the recognition of our training courses will make a meaningful contribution to the competency of South African and African Industrial Automation,” explains Marneweck.

SAIMC is an ECSA recognised voluntary association which has the ability to validate courses for CPD points. A total of fourteen courses covering field instrumentation and control systems have been accredited. Yokogawa has embarked on a strong drive towards training and skills development since 2009 offering training courses at the Yokogawa South Africa Head Office in Roodepoort or onsite at customer premises as well as 12-month student internship programmes. Since 2011, Yokogawa South Africa has successfully trained over 1200 people.
