High Tech Operator Course 1: Treatment/Distribution - Process Monitoring & Control
SUMMARY: This course addresses the devices used to monitor and control processes
and equipment in water treatment and distribution systems. The course
begins with an overview of device symbols and how they are used to
represent systems and then relates those symbols to real world devices.
The course then looks at how a Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition
(SCADA) System connects to sensors, analyzers, and control devices. The
course looks at the components of a SCADA System, the
facilities/environment the system requires, and the benefits it
Participants will receive a glossary of terms; drawing
symbols and naming standards; sample diagrams; descriptions of sensors,
analyzers, control devices, and SCADA System components; features of
SCADA systems; and references for finding additional information.
Operator Certificate Course 1 will provide participants with the basics
of process monitoring and control of water treatment and distribution.
After completing this course, a participant will be able to:
• Use a symbol legend to identify devices in a diagram
• Use illustrated device descriptions to identify sensors, analyzers, and control devices
• Use a SCADA guide to describe the functions of system components
• Describe the benefits of trending data
• Describe the requirements of System components
No Course Prerequisites required: All three courses must be completed to obtain the High-Tech Operator certificate; Classes can be taken in ANY order.
