In general, SCADA technicians are responsible for operating and maintaining existing SCADA systems as well as supporting SCADA expansion projects. These classes are intended to provide helpful technical information and introduce important skills for new SCADA technicians as well as provide a refresher for experienced SCADA-related staff. Over half of the material is presented in hands-on labs.
