Development and delivery of effective training after commissioning is a key element in the success of Dynamic Controls Canada Inc.

Whether it is a power generator, gas turbine or PLC control system, we know what’s inside, how it works and more importantly, the best way to deliver the information to your staff.

Dynamic Controls Canada Inc. will customize any training solution to meet your goals.

The development of complete training programs and customized training manuals is an integral part of our business.  We integrate the various technical manuals and documentation you may have, and design clear, comprehensive training materials for your operators.

Our approach is top-down and gives the student an overview of the process and the technical solution implemented.

Dynamic Controls Canada Inc. works closely with other system integrators and controls system retrofitting companies on the development of their training material.  We understand the various control platforms and have the knowledge and expertise to produce accurate technical training material in an accessible design for you and your employees.

Retrofit Training

An alternative direct training option is offered as part of our control system retrofit packages where we provide on -site training at your location. Conducted prior to installation as an introduction to the new equipment, this training prepares all students for participation in the testing and commissioning phase.

After installation and prior to commissioning, students are given hands-on training in programming, calibration, troubleshooting and testing in a simulation environment and followed by training on the live system, if required.

Our instructors approach training from the top – down.  This allows a degree of flexibility in the presentations and provides the students with a clear overview of the system and subsystems as they progress through the materials. Final training is hands-on and includes the practical application of procedures and tasks.

Let’s work together!
