The International Society of Automation (ISA) and its Strategic Partner for Calibration, Beamex, Inc., announce the opening of attendee registration for Calibration Best Practices: Interactive Workshop, which will be held Thursday, 18 August 2016 at the Space Center Houston in Houston, Texas, USA.
The jointly sponsored workshop will explore the latest insights, trends and best practices for process plant technicians and engineers seeking to improve calibration quality, safety, accuracy and efficiency. Instructors will discuss day-to-day challenges and how best to solve them through new and innovative strategies and advances in calibration technology—all designed to save time while achieving quality metrics and improving safety.
Workshop participants will benefit from a highly interactive learning approach, providing the practical skills and know-how needed to improve daily maintenance processes and tasks. The day of personalized instruction includes:
- Hands-on temperature and pressure calibration training
- Automated switch-testing demonstrations
- Instrument calibration competitions (with prizes!)
- An open forum to ask experts about complex calibrations
“ISA is excited to be co-hosting this unique event with our partner, Beamex,” says Jennifer Infantino Halsey, ISA’s Director of Marketing & Communications. “For several years now, ISA and Beamex have worked together to educate our members, customers and other professionals within the automation community on calibration techniques and technologies. This event is particularly valuable and attractive because it emphasizes hands-on skills training for real-world application and because it’s offered in such a stimulating and fascinating scientific environment.”
Access to this event is limited, so interested persons are encouraged to register soon. The registration includes access to all presentations, breakfast and lunch as well as admission to the Space Center Plaza exhibit, including the full-scale engineering mockup and other artifacts of NASA’s Orion spacecraft and a stellar science show.
In addition to offering extensive education programs, a museum of space artifacts and exhibits, and space attractions, the Space Center Houston serves as a gateway for touring the NASA Johnson Space Center.
The calibration workshop will conclude at an all-inclusive evening networking reception at TopGolf, a local entertainment and event venue. Each attendee is responsible for his or her travel arrangements and expenses.
