The STC-Group has recently opened new and renovated facilities at its premises in Brielle, near Rotterdam, the Netherlands. The improved process and maintenance industry training facilities at Brielle will enhance the training experiences of delegates attending the fieldbus training courses offered by STC-Group under the FOUNDATION™ Certified Training Program (FCTP). The opening ceremony of the improved process pilot plant was officiated by Mr Erik Hietbrink, chairman of STC-Group, with guest speakers Ms Romp, site manager at Teijin Aramid BV, Delfzijl, and ‘Plant Manager of the Year 2011’; Mr Van Scherpenzeel, general manager of Shell Pernis refinery, NL; and Mr Van Sluis, chairman of Deltalinqs.
Recognition under the FCTP means that FOUNDATION fieldbus training courses are taught at a certified training site, by a certified instructor, using certified curriculum. The core instructional content, developed by a team of qualified instructors from various institutions worldwide, is consistent across all the training facilities.
Through the program, educational institutions, curriculum and instructors are all audited to ensure they meet standardised educational requirements. The FCTP currently offers three types of certification: FOUNDATION Certified Professional, FOUNDATION Certified Support Specialist, and FOUNDATION Certified Technical Specialist. Additional certifications may be added in the future. Any certified trainer can teach all of these certifications.
