C36 P.L.C, S.C.A.D.A and D.C.S based computerised industrial plant process operation course. (5 days @USD200).


Designed for O level school leavers with 5 subjects passes at C or better including Maths, English, any science subject or computers. We are still accepting any number of sittings to obtain all 5 required subjects passes. This course is also aimed at enhancing industrial plant process operators and their juniors who are already employed and working in industries. Students who are going to do this specialised course will have the advantage of also learning the practical modernised automation technologies in both electrical and control and instrumentation. These modernised automation technologies include such technologies as hands-on programming of Programmable logic controllers (P.L.Cs), Supervisory control and data acquisition (S.C.A.D.A), distributed control systems (D.C.S) and engineering research, design, construction, commissioning and maintenance. These specialised courses will be offered for free. Part time paid employment will be availed to best and serious students in the various sustainable turn-key projects MITC and NG will be engaged inWe are currently at the stage of designing practical sustainable Modernised Gold Milling and Photo Voltaic (Solar) Energy Plants at Msasa Industrial Training College and therefore students shall be exposed to real practical environments from a given scope of works. Lectures, guidance, monitoring and assessments of students work shall be carried out by industrial engineering maintenance and projects implementation experts. Msasa Industrial Training College is so far the only college or training institute in Zimbabwe to offer this kind of a highly packed industrial process computerised operations.
