Certified Engineers and Installers meet a global standard of excellence and are listed on the PI website. Learn more about certification classes and become acquainted with the other types of training offered. A live webinar is scheduled for August 30, “Introduction to PROFINET.” In North America the 22nd annual member meeting is scheduled.

PI Training Centers (PITCs) offer Certified Network Engineer classes and Certified Installer classes. Specialization in PROFINET, PROFIBUS DP, PROFIBUS PA, and PROFIsafe is available. Certified classes are approved by PI and the PITCs are audited by PI to ensure that they comply with the Quality of Service agreement that has been signed by the PITC and PI. PI through its training working group provides learning outcomes that must be met by the student before a certificate can be issued. The learning outcomes are in the form of theoretical and practical tests. The RTEmagicC_3846_PI_Certified_RGB_sample_04.jpgcertificates are issued by the Regional PI Association for the region in which the class is taught.
