In today’s manufacturing environment, the “Control Panel” is at the center of the action. Inside this protective enclosure, individual electronic devices are mounted and wired in custom configurations to run each process or machine. A certified Control Panel Assembler displays a unique skillset and understanding of electrical control devices.

Industrial Insite offers a comprehensive two tier training program created by experts in the field of control panel design and manufacturing. Our training is delivered by instructors with years of real world experience across a variety of manufacturing settings.
