CCST Exam Preparation Course

This year long course is designed for the entry-level individual who needs to understand industrial process measurement and control to the extent to pass the CCST Level I test. With a focus upon OSHA compliance, the student will be introduced to process measurement with the understanding that the individual must be a qualified person to be able to work on the equipment. With that in mind the person will learn about the construction, operation, and how to avoid the hazards associated with both pneumatic and electronic process measurement and control devices. Prerequisites: A working knowledge of basic industrial processes, and high school level reading and math skills.

Learning Outcomes

At the conclusion of the course the participant should be able to:

  • Determine the manipulated variable, controlled variable, and the measured variable given a description of various typical industrial processes. 

  • Convert a pressure, level, flow, or temperature process variable value into the appropriate pneumatic or electrical value given different types of instruments.

  • Identify the electrical variable that is either directly or inferentially used by various instruments to determine the value of a measured variable. 

  • Describe how to calibrate various types of instruments and transmitters using ISA industrial consensus standard techniques. 

  • Identify and use the ANSI/ISA-S5.1 consensus industrial standard process symbols. 

  • Troubleshoot to the device level basic process control systems given the Process and Instrumentation Diagram and/or the Instrument Loop Diagram.

  • Understand how to set up the various advanced process controllers, input the proper parameters, and tune those controllers given related control system information. 

  • Troubleshoot various basic and advanced process control applications given detailed industrial control descriptions.


Training Technology will provide each student with:
  1. One copy of the text: Instrumentation for Process Measurement and Control – Anderson (most recent edition);
  2. Study Notes for each weekly lesson;
  3. Study Assignments with complete answers for each weekly lesson;
  4. Example CCST test questions every third week primarily covering the topics from the two prior weeks’ lessons, similar to questions used on the CCST Exam;
  5. 24-Hour Answers to any specific questions via e-mail;
  6. Discussion Room on www.trainingtechnology.com website which will allow the student to place to post questions among peers.  It will be monitored by Training Technology in order to further assist students with potentially difficult areas of study; and
  7. Two Mock CCST Practice Exams containing questions similar to those on the CCST Exam.
