Q.

Just received a whatsapp comparing your QAP course with Course offer by Specific Training House. They are offering a three month course covering 6 brands of PLC, 2 brands of SCADA, 2 brands of HMI, 2 brands of Drives, DCS, Instrumentation & Electrical Relay Logic and Embeded Technology.

A.

QAP (Course Code IA 05) is not one of those appriciation courses on PLC & Automation. QAP is so designed that a fresh engineer going through the course will be transformed to Industry Ready Automation Professional. In oder to so, the course is thoughtfully designed to ensure that the participants get indepth exposure on the devices and gets involved in the process of all phases of a implementation of a process automation project. It takes execution of three projects for the participants so that grow sufficient confidence.
The 400 hours of duration of QAP is very thoughtfully planned to address the essential areas to make the participants Industry Ready.
