Fieldbus Training Center and Instructor Receive Accolades

Trine University in Indianapolis, Indiana is one of our Foundation Certified Training Program (FCTP) partners.  Trine’s chief instructor, Dave Lancaster, is a long-time fieldbus professional with experience managing the world’s largest fieldbus projects.  Recently, the Indiana Council for Continuing Education (ICCE) awarded Trine’s FF400 – FOUNDATION Certified Professional course as “Course of the Year” and instructor, David Lancaster, as “Faculty of the Year”.

Mr. Lancaster has developed the curriculum for both FOUNDATION Fieldbus certified courses and numerous other custom FOUNDATION Fieldbus training programs. His excellent teaching skills and profound involvement in FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology since 1999 make him a valuable asset to Trine University, the Fieldbus Foundation, and everywhere FOUNDATION Fieldbus technology is used.

Trine University offers FOUNDATION Certified Professional and Technical Specialist courses, both in hybrid format (online plus four days of hands-on training in the FOUNDATION Fieldbus lab at Trine’s Indianapolis Regional Campus), providing students with more time for hands-on learning and savings on expenses.

Registration is currently open for FOUNDATION Certified Professional course, April 22 – 25, and FOUNDATION Certified Technical Specialist course, April 15 – 18. Registration deadline is April 1. Tuition discounts are available to Fieldbus Foundation members, groups, and attendees of Fieldbus Foundation End-User Seminars.
