The ISA Personnel Certification Standards Committee develops standards, recommended practices and technical reports for the development of certification processes and the identification of criteria to certify competency for personnel involved in specific aspects of instrumentation, systems, and automation work. These certification processes and criteria address personnel qualifications based upon education, experience, training and job performance.
The purpose of these standards, recommended practices, and technical reports is to provide the instrumentation, systems, and automation technology industry the bases (recognized processes and criteria), to establish personnel qualifications for instrumentation, systems and automation practitioners, in such areas as the Committee may determine are needed, (e.g., instrumentation, controls, and similarly titled technicians). These standards, recommended practices, and technical reports provide one acceptable means for any organization to demonstrate qualification of its personnel in the specific topical areas covered by each document.
The ISA98 committee is inactive at this time. For more information, contact Charley Robinson, ISA Standards.
