TECHNICAL EVALUATIONS

ONLINE EVALUATIONS

A fast and free online placement exam to help students select the proper technical training. Online evaluations can be customized to your specific industry, per request, at no charge, and they cover basic instrumentation and fundamentals. A report will be generated analyzing proficiency at this level. Results will be delivered in 2-3 business days.



30-45 MINUTES PER TECHNICIAN

SKILLS ASSESSMENT

At our PTU, an instructor will administer progressive written evaluations that will uncover opportunities for improvement in the technician's knowledge of theory. Then, students will be asked to perform practical tasks which will test skill in each of the following disciplines: Installation, Configurations, Loop Check-Out & Troubleshooting. The written and lab portions each take about three hours. Results will be delivered same day.
