At Horizon Controls Group, we believe in the value of training and education related to digital, automation, and process controls systems.

As digitalization becomes more comprehensive across a wider range of industries, we recognize the need for immediate, on-going, and certified training for all stakeholders that interact with these systems regularly. This includes engineering, operations, maintenance, quality, validation, and leadership.

Manufacturers are undergoing digital transformations at an increasing rate. Supply chain interruptions, pandemics, and other disruptors are driving digital architectures that rely on advanced technologies, data acquisition, visualization, analytics, and data modelling.

Horizon Controls Group want to ensure that our team and your team are trained to operate at peak efficiency and ready to meet the challenges of the future!
