BridgeValley PTU

BridgeValley Community and Technical College in West Virginia celebrates the opening of a process training unit (PTU). Industry partners Endress+Hauser, BridgeValley and Rockwell Automation invested in the $1 million, 1,800-square-foot, PTU, which is available to companies who are seeking workforce training for their employees and customers, and for students to utilize as they pursue their degree programs.

The PTU combines theory and a hands-on approach to provide participants with real-world experience in a safe, working process environment. The PTU is outfitted to help users gain experience with the types of operation, diagnostics and troubleshooting found in actual process plants. It features the latest Endress+Hauser flow, level, temperature, pressure and analytical instrumentation, two 350-gallon tanks and the PlantPAx process control system donated by Rockwell Automation. The PlantPAx process automation system will train customers for operation and maintenance of process systems. It also provides a venue for demonstrations of Endress+Hauser and Rockwell Automation technology and is a regional resource for hands-on training in a controlled environment. 

The BridgeValley PTU is one of 10 across the U.S. built to help keep up with the heightened demand for workforce training, according to Endress+Hauser.
