EMERSON recently launched its first Middle East and Africa (MEA) Education Centre for measurement instrumentation, located in its Dubai headquarters.
Mounir Taleb, MEA vice president of Emerson’s measurement solutions business said the centre enables the company to provide customers with an immersive, hands-on learning environment in field instrumentation, analyser, and metering technologies.
It has the capability to offer both conventional face-to-face and virtual training, “enabling Emerson to continue supporting its customers during these unconventional times of limited mobility and social distancing”.
Taleb said the facility would also strengthen the company’s virtual capabilities by connecting to customers’ production sites, making remote collaboration and training easier. “The education centre enables Emerson to aid customers in enhancing the skills of their current workforce and adapting to the latest measurement and flow technologies.”
It offers “a collaborative environment that nurtures learning among participants, by providing full access to software and control systems from any location. It also provides virtual, instructor-led courses that resemble a live classroom experience with the convenience of remote accessibility”.
Emerson Educational Services has been approved as an authorised provider by the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), which means it can offer continuing education units for its programs that qualify under the ANSI/IACET Standards.
