The International Society of Automation (ISA) today has announced the release of its new Digital Transformation Training Series.
The training series is a set of courses that cover emerging technologies associated with digital transformation. The goal of the series is to increase the foundational knowledge of these technologies and explain how they can be applied to drive efficiency across multiple industries. The series is well-suited for engineers, technicians, business leaders, and managers engaged in industrial automation and its related fields.
“The ISA digital transformation series will help organizations cross the chasm on adoption of digital technologies and upskill workforce across their enterprise,” said Prabhu Soundarrajan, ISA Executive Board Member and President-elect for 2024.
The Digital Transformation Training Series’ first course, Introduction to IIoT — The Industrial Internet of Things (DT101), is available now to purchase. This course will provide more awareness of the industry 4.0 movement as businesses begin shifting more towards increasing digital transformation efforts for conventional industrial and manufacturing processes. Students will learn about the basic concepts of internet of things (IoT), how these concepts and underlying technologies have evolved, and how they are currently being applied to industrial applications.
“This training is different for two reasons. First, it’s modular-based and will keep growing over time. Second, it includes a mix of theory and strategy with hands-on practical applications that are related to real-world controls and automation professionals that they live in every day,” said Jeff Winter, Division Director of ISA’s Smart Manufacturing & IIoT Division (SM/IIoT) and Industry Executive, Manufacturing at Microsoft.
Additional topics on big data and data visualization are currently under development and plan to be released in late 2022.
As a leader in automation and control education, ISA provides training, certifications, and publications to prepare the workforce to address technology changes and industry challenges in the most flexible and relevant ways. You can learn more by visiting ISA’s website.
