It’s training and it really works

1 May 2015 Mass Measurement News

Endress+Hauser has its new training concept on display. “We call it active learning,” says company training manager Chris Gimson. “The focus is on learning, not teaching, and the goal is not that the trainees just participate in training, but that they really learn something.”

The content still has an element PowerPoint-style classroom teaching, but the real power of the method is the way that the theory is cemented by hands-on practical work on the sophisticated new training rig. Here the students are exposed first-hand to the vagaries of a mistuned PID loop, as well as the different control profiles of various types of level detection instrumentation. Flow metering and dosing loops are also provided on the rig, and the three different loop types can be analysed individually or combined into one.

“The beauty is the way we can now visualise the theory we taught in the classroom,” explains Gibson.

But a picture paints a thousand words. Delegates are advised that Chris and the Endress+Hauser team are well worth a visit at stand D33 before the show closes this afternoon.
