A two-day training programme providing leading-edge automation solutions

Automation University Classic, a comprehensive two-day training programme from Rockwell Automation open to everyone interested in leading-edge automation solutions, from engineers to business managers, will be hosted in South Africa this year. Rockwell Automation Sub-Saharan Africa will welcome participants at Emperors Palace in Gauteng on 17 and 18 May. Targeted at systems integrators from management and engineering through to IT and purchasing, this year’s theme is The Connected Enterprise – Smart Productive Secure.

Automation University is designed to give these professionals the opportunity to discuss current and emerging challenges within the industry, incorporating news, views, trends and technologies of integrated information and automation solutions. It consists of over 50 different hands-on laboratories, demonstrations and presentations relating to the products and services offered by Rockwell Automation. The format allows customers to plan a program specific to their needs while industry seminars, presented by experts in their field, will be conducted for the mining, oil & gas, water & wastewater, consumer and automotive industries.

Delegates will see the latest automation and information advances. As part of the overall experience there are two grand tours of the Automation University show floor, which have been set up to showcase Rockwell Automation equipment and solutions while also encompassing those of their partners. Rockwell Automation is in the process of validating this event through the SAIEE for CPD credits.
