SCADA applications

Start with a Tutorial PDF

If you're just getting started with SCADA, a great place to start is the SCADA Tutorial White Paper. You'll learn what SCADA is, where and how it's commonly used, and see an example of "The World's Simplest SCADA System". Although many industry white papers look like bland research papers written by academic professors, this one was written based on actual work in the field and is designed to be quickly understood by busy professionals like you.

Attend a Training Class

When you're ready for the next level of learning, consider attending a SCADA training session. DPS Telecom offers free training for qualified professionals in multiple industries. Unlike broad theoretical training, you'll work through real configurations with real equipment. There's really nothing quite like hands-on training to increase your skills.
