Certified OPC Professional Training in Europe – Spring 2018

Certified OPC Professional DesignationYour chance to get Certified as an OPC Professional –

With OPC UA (Unified Architecture) now specified (see Implementation Strategy Industrie 4.0 ) alongside PROFINET as a main building block for Industrie 4.0, the need for certified OPC training is even more important for anyone involved in the development, implementation and operation of systems in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).

We are therefore delighted to be offering hands-on Certified OPC Professional training in Amsterdam, London and Manchester in conjunction with the highly respected, vendor-independent OPC Training Institute.

The training provides an in-depth study of OPC technology, its DCOM backbone, required security settings, and a lot of practical hands-on troubleshooting techniques and exercises. The training consists of 4 modules, each of 12 hours delivered over the course of a week. Students can enrol for one or more of the modules, subject to ability and availability.
