ABSTRACT
The article covers three areas of Instrumentation, Systems, and Automation Society (ISA) certification. One area of ISA certification is Certified Automation Professionals (CAP). A CAP is not only responsible for the direction and design of systems and equipment for manufacturing and control system, but also for the deployment of such systems and equipment. Another area of ISA certification is Certified Control System Technicians (CCST). A CCST calibrates, documents, troubleshoots, and repairs or replaces instrumentation for systems that measure and control level, temperature, pressure, flow, and other process variables. The last area of ISA certification is Certified Industrial Maintenance Mechanics (CIMM). A CIMM is responsible for preventive, predictive, and corrective maintenance.
