Course Outline
Daily Schedule:
8:00am - Registration and coffee (1st day only)
8:30am - Session begins
5:00pm -  Adjournment
Breakfast, two refreshment breaks and lunch are provided daily.

The two day workshop will introduce the basic fundamentals of instrumentation and ISA S5.1 standards. Participants will develop an understanding of instrumentation calibration basics, methods of measuring process variables and installation aspects of devices for pressure, level, flow, and temperature measurement. The workshop will also introduce pipes and instrumentation diagram and how to read flow diagram. It will also introduce the basics of smart transmitters and transducers associated with measuring and signaling variable information to controllers.  Final elements such as valves and variable speed drives will be highlighted along the basic principles of batch and continuous control strategies. The workshop will also introduce the definitions of hazardous area designation as per the Canadian Electrical Code.

• To introduce participants to instrumentation basics and process variables control
• To acquire the fundamentals of instrumentation calibration and results analysis
• To construct and interpret instrument P&ID and flow diagram blue prints
• To study methods for sizing and selecting instruments to measure pressure, temperature and flow 

Learning Outcomes
Participants of the workshop will be able to identify main process control loop elements including manipulating the process variables and controlling final elements and also understand how sensors, transmitters and transducers work together. They will be able to use pressure, level, flow, and temperature measuring devices and do a successful calibration and error detection in addition to constructing and interpreting instrument wiring circuits and reading P&ID diagrams.
