OVERVIEW

The Certificate in Industrial Instrumentation Calibration (CIIC) is designed to develop learners understanding of the principles of instrument calibration, calibration terminology, calibration system documentation, and relevant procedures, and to develop the skills to calibrate industrial process instruments and control elements, and measure, record and evaluate data.

The QQI-accredited Certificate in Industrial Instrumentation Calibration is a part-time programme, typically, delivered over 4 – 6 weeks (6-days in-class, 2 on-line evening sessions).

This practical programme will equip learners with the skills to check and verify process control systems.

This award of 5 ECTS credits is designed to meet the industry skills shortage in the areas of industrial instrumentation calibration and thus provides an opportunity for companies to support their employees whilst they upskill or allow people to reskill and cross-skill from non-related disciplines.

Why choose the Certificate in Industrial Instrumentation Calibration programme

  • The programme is available on a part-time basis and teaches the in-demand skill of calibrating process control instruments.
  • Learners are introduced to industrial instrumentation calibration knowledge and skills to support their working in industry or enhance employment opportunities.
  • The Certificate in Industrial Instrumentation Calibration programme is designed to equip those working in industry and services with the theoretical knowledge and practical skills to check, verify and calibrate process control instruments and the associated calibration techniques and analysis.
  • The practical nature of the coursework lends to preparation for work in industry.
  • Learners are provided access to academic resources and personal supports through ESS’s partnership with Griffith College.
  • This programme may also facilitate learners applying for progression to third-level programmes in NFQ Level 6 (plus) engineering programmes within third-level colleges.

The objectives of this certificate programme are to:

  • Support learners seeking to expand their skill and qualification to facilitate them to work in manufacturing or service industry.
  • Facilitate those currently working within the sector seeking to develop their technical skills and improve performance or seek career advancement by developing their skills and gaining an approved qualification in instrumentation calibration.
  • Enable those who are seeking employment or career mobility and are looking to expand their skills and qualifications to make them industry relevant, ready, and attractive.

On successful completion of this programme, learners are able to:

  1. Explain the principles of operation of industrial measurement instruments.
  2. Describe the principles of calibration and the associated standard instruments and data sheets/job plans.
  3. Perform appropriate calibration techniques on measurement instruments using standard safety and operational procedures.
  4. Calibrate measurements and report on the indicated errors and required corrective instrument adjustments.
  5. Measure, record and evaluate appropriate calibration data clearly and concisely.
  6. Demonstrate an ability to enhance their skills through formal education and training, independent inquiry, and professional.
