Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technicians apply, install, repair, calibrate and tune those measurement and control instruments that are applied to industrial manufacturing processes. Students will learn computerized control, programmable logic controllers, and microprocessor instrumentation. These job skills are essential for continued future employment in instrumentation.
The Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technician program stresses practical, hands-on experience to complement theory. This program will appeal to learners who enjoy mechanical work as it utilizes the student's electronic knowledge in industrial instrumentation applications.
The program is divided into four levels. Successful completion of the first level will be required before continuing to the second level, and so on. Each level is a prerequisite for the next level.

Graduates will receive 120 credits of technical training upon successful completion of the program. We are waiting for confirmation from ITABC regarding credits for the apprenticeship program. Graduates will ladder into the appropriate level of the Interprovincial Red Seal apprenticeship program based on the ITABC credits.
Graduates of the Industrial Instrumentation and Process Control Technician program will be well positioned to gain employment as technicians in the instrumentation and control field across diverse industries such as oil and gas, pulp and paper, mining, food processing, and ship building, among others.
