The Instrumentation Technology certificate will develop entry-level skills in industrial instrumentation, maintenance and calibration. Courses combine the technical know-how, the use of state-of-the-art equipment, and hands-on experience necessary for work in a variety of industrial instrumentation fields to include all automated industries such as upstream and downstream oil and gas, mineral technology, power generation, wastewater treatment and HVAC.
Students will gain the necessary objectives and skill sets to take the entry-level Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA) certification examination. This is a nationally recognized certification by industry partners; individuals holding this certification are sought-after by industry partners to fill instrumentation technician positions worldwide.
As the process industries expand and automate the need for qualified technicians’ increases. This need is currently being addressed by the Industrial Instrumentation & Controls Technology Alliance (iicta). The UAF Community and Technical College and the Process Technology Program are active members of this national alliance.
