Hello. I work in water, wastewater and HVAC. I am an instrument technician and I am trying to develop my skills further on the SCADA side. It seems that some facilities have the Instrument (or SCADA tech) do everything from electrical to IT (including server maintenance, setup, security).
I am not so savvy on the IT portion like server maintenance, security, etc. I was wondering if anyone knows of a comprehensive curriculum for instrument or SCADA techs. I’ve tried to look up trainings or certifications for SCADA technicians but I haven’t had much success.
I have the CCST and NCCER instrument tech and my background is in electrical construction but been doing instrumentation for the last 4 years including PLC and DDC programming.
I really can’t go back to school to become an IT technician but it seems at some places they want you to be IT, electrical, instrumentation and control.
So, I guess I’m looking for training geared for this type of instrument tech or at least a list of skills a super instrument tech should have, more specifically on the IT side.
