OTTAWA — The Continental Automated Buildings Association (CABA) has entered into a memorandum of understanding with the International Society of Automation (ISA) to promote ISA courses to the CABA membership.

ISA is a leader in non-biased, vendor-neutral education and training programs for automation professionals. Technicians and engineers can learn at ISA’s regional training centers, through onsite training programs at their company, or via distance education.

ISA’s instructor-led curriculum is organized in three training paths. Although ISA’s certification programs for technicians and automation professionals are not tied directly to ISA’s training courses, the training paths are designed to cover the body of knowledge for technicians and automation professionals and can be helpful to those preparing for certification as an ISA Certified Automation Professional (CAP) or ISA Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST).

CABA has committed to promoting ISA courses that address building automation and control systems through the CABA website. Links to ISA courses are available at www.caba.org/education-and-training.

“CABA is extremely pleased to enter into this agreement which strengthens its relationship with the International Society of Automation,” said Ronald J. Zimmer, CABA president and CEO. “One of the most important functions of CABA is to educate industry stakeholders and consumers about the advantages of intelligent buildings and the process for creating and maintaining intelligent buildings. We believe our agreement with ISA will lead to a stronger educated workforce.”

“ISA is dedicated to working with its partners to enhance the quality of the workforce through its multifaceted education programs,” said Patrick Gouhin, ISA executive director and CEO. “Our organization is thrilled to work with CABA to establish a list of available ISA education opportunities that will help the labor force in the building automation sector upgrade their skills.”
