The installer course provides an introductory overview of PROFIBUS technology and covers the layout, installation and testing of PROFIBUS cabling. The course is fully accredited by PI and successful trainees will receive a PI Certified PROFIBUS Installer certificate, which is recognised throughout the industry and world-wide as someone who is competent to layout, install, repair and test PROFIBUS wiring.

This one-day course can be taken on its own for those that just need installation training. However, it also provides an essential prerequisite for anyone involved at a technical level with PROFIBUS; i.e. designers, maintenance technicians, system integrators, engineers etc. The course is targeted at people who have little prior technical knowledge of PROFIBUS or other fieldbus technology, but even people with extensive practical experience with PROFIBUS will learn a lot from taking this course.


The course starts with an overview of PROFIBUS network operation and characteristics and answers many of the commonly asked questions. We then go on to cover the in-depth theory and practice and of PROFIBUS DP and PA network layout and installation. It is well known that 90% of faults on fieldbus systems are traceable to wiring and layout errors. This course not only teaches the rules for good layout and installation, but also explains why and how the rules apply. It examines many of the “creative” ways that people have found to break the layout rules. The course shows how to design and build a network which not only works properly, but also is easy to health-check, fault find and maintain. In this hands-on course you will build and test cables, set and check device addresses and diagnose and locate faults in PROFIBUS cables.


Certified PROFIBUS Installer, PROFIBUS Commissioning & Maintenance and Certified PROFIBUS Engineer courses are being delivered by Verwer Training & Consultancy in Manchester at Endress+Hauser's training facility at M23 9NF. Also available as on-site training for 6 to 12 people.
