The Self Assessment Test has several questions that you can use to practise before you take the Certification Exam.

Just get this Fieldbus e-learning course today and for a much lesser price that you would be paying for any other course out there!

Note that it includes all the leading Fieldbus protocols that you must know including FOUNDATION Fieldbus, Profibus PA, HART and ASibus. No other course (Classroom or e-learning or software or online or video or any other) includes all of these in one package!

Can I not get this information free from elsewhere?

There is a myth  “Just Google it”

Unfortunately it is not true. If you Google for it you are likely to get a large number of Fieldbus related articles, videos, ebooks and other material. It will take you a long time to go through it and at the end of this whole exercise you may

      1.  Not be able to string it all together-most information on the internet is in bits and pieces (although large ones). It is not put out there as a logical construct or in any sequential manner. This is to be expected since it is all from different sources who may have different interests.
      2.  Be more confused than what you were before you started searching for it
      3. You may not be sure that whatever information you get is current (updated) and authentic. Some people simply put out their opinion and call it as fact
      4. You will not be getting any certificate for your efforts.

Plus you will spend several hours of your time doing all this for zero returns on your investment!

On the other hand, when you take this Abhisam Fieldbus course, you know that

      1.  It is very carefully made, with subject matter experts in the field of Fieldbus, with logical progress from one subtopic to the next and from one module to the next
      2. Utilizes animations and simulations to help you understand concepts real quick. These are not available anywhere else.
      3. Get access to a real life Case Study, that clearly shows you how to develop a Fieldbus solution given the process and a basic P & ID.
      4.  Earn a Certificate when you pass the associated exam and also get an electronic badge that can be displayed online on places such as LinkedIn. Get Noticed as an Expert!

Can I not simply buy a book? That will be much cheaper!

Of course, you could always pass this up and decide to go for  buy a book on this topic,

but,

remember that there are some disadvantages with this approach

      1.  The first is that not a single book is available on the market, that covers all the topics that you need to know. On the other hand, there are a lot of things in every book, that you can safely skip, without missing anything.
      2.  Some of these books may be outdated and obsolete
      3.  Watching an animated simulation makes you grasp a concept much faster than merely reading about it.
      4.  Nobody gives you a certificate if you simply read a book!
