May 22, 2023


In Australia, there is a growing need for Instrumentation and Control (IC) technicians. You can work in the oil and gas industry on an oil rig, at manufacturing facilities, power plants, mineral and chemical processing, fertilizer plants and hospitals.    

With the growing popularity of a career in instrumentation and control, it is essential to combine your engineering knowledge or electrical trade skills with practical instrumentation and control skills.   

If you are considering progressing your career as a technician or engineer, and to stay ahead in handling the challenges and opportunities created by instrumentation and control automation industry, you must develop a broad range of competencies in this exciting and evolving field. Therefore, you must also have hands on skills to select, calibrate, fault find and test field instruments and control systems including programming and fault finding of vendor(s) supplied PLC, HMI, and industrial networking.  

Various instrumentation and control system courses offered by PMV can upskill and boost your career progression in this innovative area of skill shortage.    


An instrumentation technician can specify, select, install, modify, fault find and repair field instruments and in an existing control system based on their skills and competence.  

Some of the specific tasks undertaken by an instrumentation technician, follows:   

  1. Install electrical and instrumentation devices that manage operations within a building, such as a factory or processing facility.  
  1. To identify and fix problems, inspect, and test the machinery, instruments, and control systems.  
  1. Understand electrical, electronic, hydraulic, mechanical, and pneumatic concepts and commission and maintain control systems and support plant operation.  
  1. For the control systems of a facility, create, enter, and validate programs on PLCs and HMI.
