INSTRUMENTATION TECHNICIAN

We offer a 16-week intensive hands-on Instrumentation training program - the fields most in demand in the Houston-Galveston area. This program prepares you for work in manufacturing, chemical, paper, steel, and power plants and refineries.

PAC WORKS Instrumentation Technicians learn to:

  • Inspect, test and repair electric, mechanical, and pneumatic instruments and systems used in refineries and chemical plants.

  • Test accuracy of flowmeters, pressure gauges, temperature indicators, controllers, and other recording, indicating or controlling instruments to locate defective components in systems.

  • Calibrate and install instruments in system, using hand tools. 

  • Perform basic electrical troubleshooting, instrument troubleshooting.

  • Understand control loops and commissioning.

 
 

ANALYZER TECHNICIAN

This 16-week course of instruction prepares individuals for entry-level jobs as an Analyzer technician. Graduates may find suitable employment with in Manufacturing, Chemicals and Refineries, paper and steel plants, power plants and offshore facilities. Students will learn to troubleshoot and repair common analyzers used in the industry. These analyzers that will form the basis for your training are the back bone of the analytical systems used in the Houston area for Refinery and Chemical plants.

PAC WORKS Instrumentation Technician Topics:

  • Gas Chromatography - One of the most popular analytical methods in the Houston area for hydrocarbon measurement.

  • H2S/Total Sulfur - Introduction to the lead acetate tape methods of
    Total sulfur/ H2S analysis.  

  • ​IR/UV - Some gases absorb unique light wavelengths. This property can be used to detect the concentration of a selected gas in a mixture. An Infrared (IR) light source is focused through a sample cell containing a continuously flowing sample of the gas mixture to be measured and onto a detector.

  • ​Paramagnetic - The paramagnetic oxygen analyzer is based on the scientific principle that oxygen is a paramagnetic material. When a test sample containing oxygen is introduced into the test cell, the oxygen in the sample is attracted to the point of maximum field strength.

  • ​Moisture - The presence of water in petroleum liquids has its impact from a commercial point of view as well as from a technological point of view. Commercially, excessive water reduces the percentage of oil components in a crude oil, making the crude oil less valuable.

    Technically, excessive water in crude oils will affect the distillation process. If he presence of water in the final product exceeds its specification, this will affect its fuel properties and value.

 

PV INSTRUMENTATION PERFORMANCE PREP

This Hands-On Performance Verification Prep four (4) week course prepares the student to take the performance verification portion of the testing for certification in Instrumentation Technician. Performance Verifications (PVs) are designed to assess an individual's skill level on specific tasks. PVs require a participant to demonstrate their skill level in a controlled, observable, and measurable manner and must be administered by a qualified objective performance evaluator.

​​

  • Knowledge Verified: Successful completion of the written assessment

  • Performance Verified: Successful completion of the practical performance of a particular craft

  • Certified: Successful completion of both the written assessment and the performance verification.

 

Knowledge Verified + Performance Verified = Certified

After successful completion of a written assessment or performance verification, an individual’s qualifications are tracked through the National Registry. These industry credentials give employers confidence in the craft professional’s skill, knowledge, and desire for continuous professional development. They also provide the craft professional with industry-recognized credentials to help build upon their career their field of study.

  • Performing preventive maintenance.

  • Replacing units or parts such as wiring, fuses, circuit breakers, coils or switches; measuring,  and installing circuits.

  • Cutting, bending, threading conduit and raceway

  • Using test meter.

  • Working from blueprints and diagrams.

  • Making mathematical computations.

  • Troubleshooting ac and dc drives.

  • Installing programmable logic controllers.

 

INDUSTRIAL MAINTENANCE E/I TECHNICIAN

This 12 month program teaches the E/I technician to works with electrical and instrumentation equipment in three (3) semesters. These technicians might work at power generation facilities, oil refineries, manufacturing plants, food processing plants and paper mills. E&I technicians install, maintain, troubleshoot and repair equipment such as plant lighting, thermostats, programmable controllers and transformers.  E/I technicians maintain equipment to keep it running smoothly, perform tests and calibrations, repair or replace components and troubleshoot equipment operational problems. An E/I tech can expect to find work with good pay throughout the country.
