Emerson launched its first Middle East and Africa (MEA) Education Center for measurement instrumentation, located in its Dubai headquarters.
The center enables Emerson to provide customers with an immersive, hands-on learning environment in field instrumentation, analyser, and metering technologies.
The center provides solutions that help customers upskill their process automation engineering and maintenance workforce through an innovative training approach based on their specific needs. It has the capability to offer both conventional face-to-face and virtual training, enabling Emerson to continue supporting its customers during these unconventional times of limited mobility and social distancing.
"The facility will strengthen Emerson's virtual capabilities by connecting to customers' production sites, facilitating remote collaboration and training," said Mounir Taleb, MEA vice president of Emerson’s measurement solutions business. "The education center enables Emerson to aid customers in enhancing the skills of their current workforce and adapting to the latest measurement and flow technologies."
The education center includes a modern, facility offering a collaborative environment that nurtures learning among participants, by providing full access to software and control systems from any location. It also provides virtual, instructor-led courses that resemble a live classroom experience with the convenience of remote accessibility.
