ISA to provide project management course for systems integrators

Friday, Jan 22, 2016

The International Society of Automation (ISA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Control System Integrators Association (CSIA) to deliver a web-based project management course customized to meet the specialized needs of system integrators.

Project Management for Automation and Control System Integration (MT08W) will be taught live online by an ISA expert instructor during four brief sessions spread over two consecutive weeks. Consistent with CSIA Best Practices and CSIA’s commitment to improve the business practices of system integrators, the course covers all aspects of project management phases, functions, responsibilities, techniques and tools.

“ISA is pleased to collaborate with CSIA on the development of this new project management course for system integrators,” says Dalton Wilson, ISA’s Director of Education Services. “Through our discussions with CSIA, it was made clear to us that demand is rising among CSIA members for comprehensive project management training. By making the course available over the Web with live instruction by a leading subject-matter expert, we’re blending convenience with an engaging, high-quality learning format.”

“Best Practices represents the backbone of CSIA and project management is a key section of our manual,” explains Jose M. Rivera, CSIA CEO. “This training addresses the need of our members for immediate applicability to their jobs while reducing the lost productivity and costs associated with travel.”

The new course will debut in March of this year, with four-hour classes taught on Tuesday, 8 March; Thursday, 10 March; Tuesday, 15 March; and Thursday, 17 March. Another offering is planned for fall 2016.

Course registration, payment processing and enrollment confirmation are provided through ISA's website and customer service department.
