Emerson Process Management

Emerson's PlantWeb University has broadened its Internet Engineering School with 19 new courses covering the various aspects of wireless for process automation. Designed for anyone who uses automation to improve plant performance, the new courses are available free through PlantWebUniversity.com, Emerson’s educational Web site. Five more courses will be added, and all 24 courses will later be translated into Spanish and Chinese.

Based on Emerson’s experience in implementing its Smart Wireless solutions for customers, the courses are practical, concise, and free of marketing hype. Each on-line course can be completed in about 15 minutes, and all are available at no charge to anyone with an Internet connection. Subject matter includes: what is wireless, wireless standards, wireless myths, self-organizing networks, and wireless applications.
