Course of the week | Instrumentation and Control


This training course has been developed by OakCAD/NCT to meet the growing need for technician engineers to update or upgrade their knowledge and skills in instrumentation and control.

Instrumentation and Control is a unit from our new Certificate in Engineering Maintenance. The units and the complete qualification are certificated by EAL, as a Certificate of Verified Achievement, and have achieved the Quality Award from unionlearn.

EAL (Excellence, Achievement & Learning Limited) is a major UK engineering awarding body and the unionlearn Quality Award is developmental and aims to support providers to reach the highest possible standards of working with the unions.

The course can be provided as a tutor lead delivered course, as a distance learning course or flexibly, combining both methods.

The course content has been developed in consultation with several of our large pharmaceutical and manufacturing clients and delivered as a tutor lead course since 1997.
