Course Overview

What does an Instrumentation and Control Technician do? Instrumentation and Control Technicians maintain, detect, calibrate and repair measurement and control systems in commercial and industrial settings.

Instrumentation and control technicians are experts and well-informed in complete plant systems and the interactions of processes. They install, service and maintain a variety of systems comprising safety and security, energy delivery (hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical), communication, and process control systems.

They also install and service measuring and indicating instruments to supervise and monitor process control variables, monitor the operation of equipment and measure the characteristics of the material within a process.

Instrumentation and control technicians also manage and work on final control devices such as valves, actuators and positioners to manipulate the process medium. The technicians install and stop electrical, pneumatic and fluid connections. They also work on signal transmission systems and network and such as wireless and fibre optic.

Along with the modification and replacement of components, calibration and repair, instrumentation and control technicians examine and test the operation of instruments and systems to diagnose faults and verify repairs.

They create and enhance process control strategies and configure related systems such as Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Distributed Control Systems (DCSs), Human Machine Interfaces (HMIs) and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems.

Instrumentation and control technicians keep backups, documentation and software modifications as part of maintaining these computer-based control systems. Scheduled maintenance, upkeep and the commissioning of systems are also important aspects of the work.

The technicians consult technical documentation, drawings, manuals and schematics. They work with plant operators to optimize plant controls and may support engineering in plant design, modification and hazard analysis.

The technicians use hand, power and electronic instruments, material handling equipment and test equipment. They work on a variety of instruments involving primary control elements, transmitters, signal conditioners, recorders, analysers, sensors, detectors, controllers and final control elements. These instruments gauge and control variables such as pressure, flow, temperature, level, motion, force and chemical composition.

Instrumentation and control technicians work in diverse industrial sectors such as oil and gas; steel; water treatment; manufacturing; pulp and paper/fibre processing; nuclear, thermal and hydropower generation; mining; petrochemical and industrial/commercial instrument servicing.

When doing their duties, instrumentation and control technicians must conform with federal, jurisdictional, industrial and site-specific standards, codes and regulations. They must make sure that all processes operate and are kept within these set standards, codes and regulations. Keeping up to date with developments in technology in the industry and trade is important.

Instrumentation and control technicians can work in risky and hazardous environments where they may be exposed to confined spaces, heights, noise, dust, cold and heat. There might also be risks and hazards in working with chemicals, gases, radiation, laser equipment and substances under pressure.

Key traits for individuals entering this trade are manual dexterity, attention to detail, communication skills, strong problem-solving skills, technological aptitude and mathematical and scientific aptitude.

This analysis identifies similarities or overlaps with other tradespersons and professionals such as process operators, steamfitters/pipefitters, industrial mechanics (millwrights), electricians and engineers.

This Zoe training course introduces the participants to measurement and calculation, data analysis and numerical estimation skills to their tasks. Some of these tasks include calculating flow, calculating volume displacement, measuring analyser malfunctions, monitoring pressure, interpreting deviations on graphs, and comparing values and measurements.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this Certified Instrumentation and Process Control Technician Course successfully, participants will have an understanding of:

  • Types of documents referenced comprise computer printouts with numeric information, supplier catalogue listings and engineering documentation such as forms, graphs, tables, charts, schematics, assembly diagrams and drawings. They may also make documents such as on-site sketches and completely detailed schematics, assembly drawings, graphs and charts
  • Parts lists, maintenance schedules, and inspection reports. Instrumentation and control technicians create and write procedures for the control and operation of equipment and to troubleshoot faults. They use writing abilities when communicating through e-mail and providing status updates in logbooks
  • Measurement and calculation, data evaluation and numerical estimation skills to their tasks. Some of these tasks include calculating volume displacement, monitoring pressure, measuring analyser malfunctions, calculating flow, interpreting deviations on graphs, and comparing values and measurements. Instrumentation and control technicians evaluate, and analyse collection of data gathered from tests and simulations to troubleshoot faults, evaluate equipment functioning and assess the progress of wear
  • Troubleshoot breakdowns and malfunctions, take corrective measures to avoid potential hazards and choose whether to repair or replace components based on time and cost factors. They plan and establish maintenance schedules, the installation of new machinery and the tradespeople assigned to install the machinery. Instrumentation and control technicians should be capable to think swiftly and synthesize the information at hand to deal with emergencies such as serious equipment malfunctions that could cause injury, or property and environmental damage
