The Certified PROFIBUS Installer Training is accredited by PROFIBUS and PROFINET International and is now recognised across the world as the best introductory course in PROFIBUS technology.

This course is delivered by practicing engineers with many years of experience in site-based fault-finding and in the development and delivery of training courses. It provides a practical, hands-on approach to fieldbus network layout and installation and covers the essential requirements for a successful and maintainable PROFIBUS network. Examples and case study materials are used throughout to highlight the many common, but potentially very costly, pitfalls and mistakes that are made in laying out and installing PROFIBUS systems.

The course lasts one day and concludes with a practical exam and an open-book theory exam. Graduates of the course will also have the right to have their name listed in the Certified PROFIBUS Installer section of the PROFIBUS & PROFINET International web site at

Who should attend the course?

Perhaps confusingly, the course is not just for installers, but provides the basic but essential information for anyone who is involved with PROFIBUS at a technical level: i.e. designers, commissioning engineers, maintenance technicians and of course installers. The course also provides an essential pre-requisite to more advanced training like the PROFIBUS Commissioning and Maintenance Course, the System Design Course or the Certified PROFIBUS Engineer Course. Although centred on the most widely used fieldbus technology, PROFIBUS, most of the course content is equally applicable to other fieldbus technologies.
