Course Deliverables


The following services are performed:


  • Pre-service checklist review.
  • An interactive on-site PI System Administration for IT Professionals class.
  • Provisioning of a preconfigured virtual learning environment hosted in the Microsoft® Azure cloud for student use during the class (see access requirements in the Requirements section below).
  • Preparation of Course documentation for a maximum of 12 students per class:
    • Training material will be current to the latest version of the PI System tools. If you wish to have the class taught using an older version of our software, this must be specified at the time of ordering so we can prepare the appropriate course documentation.
  • Training certificates for each student.

Class Content


The class will begin with the PI System basics where the question “What is the PI System?” will be asked and answered.

Next students will explore how data flows in the PI System and discover how data flows from data source to end user. They will also learn how to connect to a PI System.

Students then move on to exploring the common setup of PI Interfaces, creating and managing PI Points, and setup of PI Buffer Subsystem. This is all designed to the give the system administrator a good working knowledge of the data collection mechanisms with a special focus on future troubleshooting.

A good deal of time and attention are paid to Asset Framework and Data Archive security and monitoring your PI System.

Note: The instructor can adjust the class content to fit the students’ requirements. This means they’ll spend more time on subjects that are important to them and less time on subjects that are less relevant to their situation. However, the trainer will not go beyond the scope of this training package.

A typical schedule from service request to completion is:

One week before the training - Preparation of Azure virtual machines.
