Evaluation methodology

Participants are given time to work with the various components of a FOUNDATION Fieldbus network.
We put emphasis on a balanced approach to theory and practice as well as a vendor-neutral atmosphere.
Mornings are spent learning the theoretical background and afternoons with the actual components and integration of the field devices into the system.
Almost half the course is spent on giving you ample opportunity to use what you have learned in hands-on tasks taken straight from our experience.


Theory and practical hands-on.
