QTech has developed a comprehensive range of training programmes suitable for new users, existing users, maintenance contractors and technical integrators.

To best suit the diversity and expected outcomes, four training options are available. However, these are easily customised for you to maximise the benefit.
Please contact us to discuss your specific requirements so we can tailor the best package for you.

Course 1 and 2 are suitable for users with little or no familiarity with DATRAN. The course provides a background to SCADA and telemetry and introduces the DATRAN product range. These courses can be tailored and changed to best suit your requirements.

Course 2 is specifically aimed at regular users of the DATRAN software and those with a reasonable working knowledge of computers. This is ideal for new staff or refresher training for existing staff.

Course 3 and 4 are for the experienced integrator with a significant amount of field experience and high levels of IT literacy. An understanding of DLP-IDE, the design and development environment for the DATRAN RTU control program, is recommended. 

Course 3 and 4 can lead to DATRAN certification by successfully passing the associated exam.
