Fox Valley/ISA June Meeting: Addressing Educational Gaps in Automation Today


Join us on June 15th as we learn from Ed Shuler- Beamex about the educational gap between technicians fresh from school and seasoned technicians and what companies are doing.

As automation and technology evolve, it is imperative for process plants to be proactive in adapting to these changes. A large part of proactivity includes addressing educational gaps between technicians fresh from school and seasoned technicians. Gathered from over 40 years of experience, this presentation will cover many common misconceptions/educational gaps taken straight from industrial plants.

Ed Shuler has over 40 years of professional experience in Instrumentation and Controls. Currently, he serves as a Calibration Solutions Trainer at Beamex. He leads hands-on training courses for end user industrial facilities. From building marine sonic echo receiver cables for an oil exploration company to installing and troubleshooting instrumentation to working as an Instrument Tech at Hess, many experiences lead him to his passion on helping people gain a better understanding of various automation solutions. He has traveled worldwide for Foxboro and Honeywell, installing and training technicians on process controls systems and calibration systems. Ed is an Electronics Technician graduate from DeVry University.
