LSI, a Siemens Certified Solution Partner, is pleased to announce that four of its engineers recently passed the Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 certification exams. Congratulations to Austin Hoang, Drew Hoffman, Jonathan Mysona, and Denardo Crawford for achieving this important certification. Their commitment to professional development and proficiency strengthens LSI’s capabilities in the DCS market.
“Our growing partnership with Siemens will benefit from having these talented engineers certified on the PCS 7 platform,” says Nick Riggio, LSI’s President. “We appreciate their dedication and willingness to learn because it helps us deliver more successful project outcomes for our clients.”
Rich Chmielewski, the Siemens PCS 7 Solution Partner Program Manager, had this to say about the LSI group: “It has been a pleasure to get to know them as they excelled in our PLC and Drives solution partner modules, worked to modernize a series of PCS 7 systems and have demonstrated their expertise during this PCS 7 certification workshop. We are proud to have LSI as part of the solution partner program.”
The 10-day certification workshop focuses on a wide variety of SIMATIC PCS 7 topics, including best practices and efficient engineering methodologies. The participants receive hands-on training by working on their own ES, OS, and AS station. The last day of the workshop is used for the certification test, which is both theoretical and practical. The theoretical test consists of randomly generated multiple-choice questions from an extensive SIMATIC PCS 7 questions database and lasts 90 minutes. The practical test concentrates on the methodology of PCS 7 project implementation and lasts 210 minutes.
The prerequisites for the workshop are experience in process control engineering, practical experience in SIMATIC PCS 7 project planning, and basic knowledge of the APL (Advanced Process Library).
