About Abhisam Workshops

Abhisam conducts some highly specialized and hard-to-find-otherwise Training Workshops & Masterclasses, in multiple locations.

Note that these can also be conducted at your own site /office /location, or as an online webinar.

Ask us for details.

Most Abhisam workshops are in the blended learning format. This means that participants attend the classroom style workshop on the allotted dates and after completion, can access the online blended learning versions of these classes from anywhere.

This helps them reinforce concepts that they learned in the face to face workshop and retain the knowledge and skills gained.

About the Workshop
The Abhisam Express IIoT Workshop is a one day version of the two day regular workshop and covers all the essentials of Industrial IoT technology. It has been developed by the same industry experts who have developed the regular workshop and who are having cumulatively more than hundred man years of experience in Industrial Automation, Control Systems and Business Enterprise IT Systems! This workshop is not the run of the mill IoT hobbyist workshop. It is meant for industrial and business professionals who wish to come up to speed with this new technology and use it in their own industries and businesses. Attending this workshop will give you an intensive “essentials” training over a period of a complete day, so that you can quickly learn the subject.

The workshop is ideal for engineers and technologists, as well as managers and business owners to see how they can gain from it. This workshop will cover the following topics.All participants in the Express workshop earn an electronic badge to showcase their knowledge. This badge is issued via Credly and complies with the Mozilla Open Badges standard, so that it can be shared on LinkedIn, Facebook and other online media.

Level 2:  Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) & Digitalisation workshop (2 days)

 

About the Workshop
The Abhisam  Level 2 IIoT & Digitalisation Workshop has been developed by industry experts having cumulatively more than hundred man years of experience in Industrial Automation, Control Systems and Business Enterprise IT Systems. This workshop is not the run of the mill IoT hobbyist workshop. As compared to the Express workshop, it is a more detailed workshop, where we deep dive into the technology.

All participants in the Express workshop earn an electronic badge at Samurai Level to showcase their knowledge. This badge is issued via Credly and complies with the Mozilla Open Badges standard, so that it can be shared on LinkedIn, Facebook and other online media.  Here’s a dumb image of the badge.

Level 3 Industrial IoT & Digitalisation workshop  (Advanced)

Duration: 4-6 weeks after completion of Level 2

Contact us  for more details

This is an advanced, high level workshop where you will actually design and build either an IIoT product or implement a solution using other devices. The product or solution must be designed from the ground up, using various industrial grade components and software.

Note that you may have to spend extra for procuring the necessary components, subscribing to Cloud platforms and other things that are necessary to come up with a real world solution. These costs are not part of the Fees charged.

At the end of the workshop, you should have built something like the device below.
