Our Training

SHP® offers training courses on PLC, SCADA and DCS Integration at our Head Office in Warrington and soon to be opened Engineering Training Academy in Wales, The Academy at St John’s®.

The Training we provide will help your delegates reach operational greatness with our team of training experts who can improve the knowledge and skills of your workforce.

This central location ensures that we are able to promote and deliver a 24-7 site support solution as we are adjacent to the major motorway network allowing rapid deployment and timely response to sites throughout the UK.

OPENING IN 2020 – Situated in Prestatyn, The Academy at St John’s® is located 0.3 miles from the Prestatyn Bus Station and situated across the road from Prestatyn Train Station for easy access if traveling within the UK. Within two miles of a number of hotels and eating establishments, it is ideally located to service our delegates’ requirements.

SHP® are able to tailor this course making it bespoke to your specific business, allowing the delegates to get a better understanding of the functionality of their site and helping them remain confident to fix any system errors that flag up within the control system.

A DCS (Distributed Control System) is a computerised control system for a process or plant which usually contains many control loops – the fundamental building black of an industrial control system.

Controllers are distributed geographically in various section of a control area and are connected to operating and engineering stations which are used for data monitoring, data logging, alarming and controlling purpose.  They continuously interact with the processes in process control applications once it gets instruction from the operator. It also facilitates to variable set points and opening and closing of valves for manual control by the operator.

A PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) is an industrial digital computer which has been designed to operate reliably in harsh usage environments and conditions and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines or any activity that requires high reliability control and ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.

SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) is a control system architecture comprising computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces (GUI) for high-level process supervisory management, while also comprising other peripheral devices like a PLC.

The operator interfaces which enable monitoring and the issuing of process commands, like set point changes, and is handled through the SCADA computer system.  The subordinated operations, e.g. the real-time control logic or controller calculations, are performed by networked modules connected to the field sensors and actuators.
