Welcome to ISA

The International Society of Automation (ISA) is a nonprofit professional association that sets the standard for those who apply engineering and technology to improve the management, safety, and cybersecurity of modern automation and control systems used across industry and critical infrastructure.

Founded in 1945, ISA develops widely used global standards; certifies industry professionals; provides education and training; publishes books and technical articles; hosts conferences and exhibits; and provides networking and career development programs for its 40,000 members and 400,000 customers around the world.

We are the European office of the International Society of Automation and our focus is on training all around the world. If you have any questions please email us on info@isaeurope.org

Our Professional Studio is Open!

All Open enrollment courses will be done remotely until further notice.

Due to COVID-19 Classroom courses are hardly possible to organize. We (ISA Europe) have a very good solution using the best audio and video and our very own studio to perform Vilt training courses (remote training).

The trainer and technical assistant are in our studio in Eindhoven and students can be at home/ at their office.
