Minimum Requirements for Certificate: 32 credits

The instrumentation technology program will develop entry-level skills in industrial instrumentation. 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.

Students are taught the necessary objectives and skills sets required to take the entry-level Instrumentation, Systems and Automation Society certificate 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. CTC and the process technology program are active members of this national alliance.
