APC Training

Below is a list of companies providing training for advanced process control in the refining and petrochemical industry worldwide. Some of the companies have created software specifically to be used for APC training. This list does not include the training provided by software companies which is required for their licensed software or application integrators for the bespoke applications. Information on this kind of training can be found on the APC Vendors and Application Vendors web sites. The links to training on the web which are of value to develop the control engineers' understanding of the basic concepts are listed under Training Aids.

If you are a training company and would like to be included in this list, contact us. Also, if you have an APC training course or a software used for APC training, which you would like to advertise in this section, please contact us regarding the terms.

You can use the following link, Convert Time Zones, to work out the times for APC Webtraining.
