FOUNDATION™ Certified Training Program Lee College is home to one of eight FOUNDATION™ Certi- fied Training Programs (FCTP) worldwide. FCTP means that your fieldbus training is taught at a Certified Training Site, by a Certified Instructor, using Certified Curriculum. Through the FCTP program training sites, curriculum, and instructors are all audited to ensure they meet program requirements. Certified training centers are required to maintain multiple FOUNDATION fieldbus hosts and devices onsite in order to demonstrate competence with fieldbus technology. They must also demonstrate to auditors that their course material adheres to set instructional standards. FCTP ensures that you are working with someone possess- ing a strong knowledge of Foundation technology princi- ples, a consistent understanding of fieldbus fundamentals and a proven ability to implement fieldbus-based control systems. Beginning automation students are able to identify colleges, universities and other facilities offering a certified Foundation educational curriculum. After graduating, they will be able to present official FCTP certificates to potential employers. Existing automation professionals completing certified courses can expand their job skills and employment value within their companies.
