About STC Brielle

In the historical fortress town of Brielle, close to the Rotterdam-Europoort industrial areas, STC Brielle has established a unique training center for process control and automation. The combination of complex simulation facilities and real hands-on training give students a chance to enhance their theoretical knowledge and gain user experience by working on real equipment and configurations.

Foundation fieldbus training courses are for end users, design engineers, electrical engineers and operators, and cater to specific skill and knowledge levels. The Foundation Fieldbus training courses can be combined with elements of our process control and automation courses.

Our training packages include a selection of these subjects:

  • Basic process elements training (using work packages on simulation equipment)
  • Complex total control on simulated chemical process
  • Complex total control on electrical/thermal power plant simulations
  • Hands on control of real processes
  • Design and implementation of control elements processes
  • National Instruments bus monitoring and configurator station
  • Commissioning tools
  • Installation tools

Process control and measurement automation training as well as dedicated Foundation fieldbus training is provided at the STC Brielle training facility. A significant feature of the facility is live processes where Foundation fieldbus devices and host control systems are implemented.

Training courses can be selected from the standard list, or a training schedule can be tailored to a customer's specific needs. In addition to courses offered at our facility, on-site courses are also available.

Fieldbus Courses

Foundation Fieldbus Technology (2 days) — The aim of this course is familiarization with Foundation fieldbus technology and how it works.

Foundation Fieldbus Engineering & Design (2 days) — The aim of this course is familiarization with Foundation fieldbus technology in a project. Attendees will learn how to calculate aspects within a Foundation fieldbus project and which aspects are important when this technology has been selected for a project.

Foundation Certified Technical Specialist (5 days) — The aim of this course is to get familiar with Foundation fieldbus technology using several host systems, FF devices and test equipment utilized in the (process) industry. The attendee learns how to implant power supplies, cabling and devices and will learn how to commission and troubleshoot several instruments via the host. This course contains of 50% practical work and 50% theory and is completed on the last day with a practical and theoretical test.
