Honeywell launches its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Automation College

Honeywell International Inc. is looking to boost the technical skills of process industry professionals abroad with the launch of its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) Automation College.

Honeywell Process Solutions, a controls solutions subsidiary, developed the program in part to address the industry's skilled-workforce shortage, including plant operators, maintenance technicians, implementation engineers, system administrators and management.

"One of the process industry's foremost challenges is the shortage of skilled professionals," says Norm Gilsdorf, vice president and general manager, Honeywell Process Solutions EMEA.

The training centers are located in Abu Dhabi; Amsterdam; Brussels; Kuopio; Manchester and Prague. Training also is available at customer sites. The courses are designed to improve students' knowledge of Honeywell systems, help them increase their productivity, reduce errors and minimize downtime at their sites.

As an incentive to its customers, Honeywell offers a training match fund through a solution support program it codeveloped with customers. The company has also launched an online training management program for the Automation College students, providing them online access to all course details and schedules and allowing them to check for availability and make reservations. More information about the program is available at

Honeywell Process Solutions also has Automation College locations and onsite customer training operations in other regions globally, including the Americas and Asia/Pacific.
