Training and Education Services


Providing the training you need, when and where you need it.


With over 40+ years of training experience, Northeast Controls and Emerson Education Services are committed to providing quality training and educational services to our customers, when and where you need it. We offer a variety of options:

  • Factory Training: Northeast Controls hosts a variety of factory-led training courses in which students attend class in one of our fully equipped classrooms in Clifton Park, Rochester, or Buffalo, NY. These courses are offered throughout the year and in many cases are scheduled in advance by our Education Leader. Our courses include small group hands-on sessions, workshops, one-on-one time with instructors, and in many cases can be customized. Attending a factory-led training session is one of the best investments you can make today in your employees and your business.
  • Regional Training Centers: The principals we represent, such as Emerson Process Management, as well as our other Local Business Partners, have regional training centers across North America that are strategically located to support your training needs.
  • On-site, Local Training: Northeast Controls will work with you to develop customized on-site courses, which provide an alternative to sending your employees off-site incurring expensive travel and lodging costs. We can tailor training - in your local area or at your local plant site - to meet your specific needs.
  • eLearning Training: This convenient and flexible on-line learning tool is an excellent way to help manage your time and costs when you can't attend a factory, regional, or local training session.
  • Virtual Learning (V-Learning): This new educational offering delivers an affordable, live, interactive, instructor-led training experience that saves time and travel. V-Learning is real-time learning from certified subject-matter experts facilitating the class via a virtual classroom. The virtual classroom permits students to take each course from their desktops connected to factory-based systems via the internet including audio and video. V-Learning eliminates travel expenses and saves time and makes it flexible to achieve your learning goals. For a pre-recorded presentation on Virtual Learning, Click Here

Automation Systems

Automation Systems are a key component of the process manufacturers' automation strategy. Gaining the greatest advantage with today's digital automation technologies requires the most up-to-date skills. Northeast Controls' Educational Services helps shorten the learning curve and keep skills tuned so customers can operate their plants most efficiently.

We deliver what you need to know about the breadth and depth of Emerson's award-winning automation system - DeltaV. Everything from the specific operation in your process to how you can most smoothly evolve from an older legacy control system to powerful new capabilities.

PROVOX Training

As the technology is continually evolving, PROVOX training is updated accordingly and should be considered by anyone responsible for configuring, operating, and troubleshooting the system.


Field Devices


At the foundation of any process are the field devices that measure and control the flow of air, steam, water, gas or hundreds of other materials. Without proper basic setup, calibration and configuration of these devices, advanced control techniques cannot provide the levels of efficiency the technology is capable of.

Knowledge of process control devices within a plant is often passed down from generation to generation. At the same time, if advances in process technology and methodology usually brought about by training aren't brought into the plant, in-house standards for device setup and maintenance can become based on out-dated theory. The result is that while a valve or instrument may be working, it may not be working up to its capabilities and is not delivering on its promised performance.

Northeast Controls' Educational Services has made a commitment to helping our customers find and keep that promise of performance.
