Fluke exceeds $300,000 mark in ISA training equipment donations
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA (14 July 2014) — Over a five-year period, Fluke Corporation has donated more than $320,000 worth of equipment to ISA’s training program.
“Fluke’s ongoing support of ISA’s training program has been critical to our ability to develop courses, bring courses to market, and continue to educate automation professionals around the world,” says ISA Education and Certification Manager Dalton Wilson. “Fluke has been a strong supporter of ISA training for more than 20 years, and their donations directly impact the quality of our training programs and the experiences that students have in our classes.”
Fluke began donating documenting calibrators in 1994 with the Fluke-702 and 74X family of calibrators. In 2004, Fluke announced another donation of 24 Fluke-744 calibrators to the program. Future years brought donations of Fluke-754 documenting calibrators, scopes, digital multimeters (DMMs) and other test equipment.
“Fluke is proud to support ISA training courses and ISA members,” said Salvatore Parlatore. Vice President, Global Marketing, Fluke Corporation. “Fluke products are utilized in hundreds of facilities throughout the US and around the world, so it makes perfect sense to offer these products to students as they learn the fundamentals of calibration and test measurement. We look forward to donating new equipment as Fluke continues to innovate and bring new products to market.”
Fluke Corporation will be a Silver Champion at the upcoming ISA Process Control and Safety Symposium, to be held in Houston, Texas USA 6-9 October 2014. The symposium features training courses and technical sessions designed to help process measurement and control professionals in chemical, petrochemical, energy processing, and other process industry sectors operate more safely and securely.
