Share this course on your social media page

Instrumentation Technicians work in many sectors including oil and gas, mining, minerals processing and associated industries.

This PID (proportional integral derivative) skill set will equip you with the skills needed for the set up, adjustment and tuning of control loops. While it is highly recommended that you have completed UEE40411 Certifcate IV in Electrical - Instrumentation prior to doing this skill set, it is possible to enrol in both concurrently and North Metrolpolitan TAFE will help you manage the order of completion of subjects so that you can achieve the pre-requisite units before commencing this PID program.

Next course

This course will be offered each term, with the next intake in Term 1 2022.


As it is expected that most students will already be employed in the industry, the course is delivered in a combination of online theory and lab based skills to minimise time spent away from work. The theory and assignment component can be completed online in your own time while the skill component is to be undertaken in our industry relevant lab at our Midland campus over the course of approximately one week. This can be done during the day or on some week day evenings.

Intrumentation Technician in oil & gas, mining, minerals processing
