Dr. Rodney Jacobs is a Senior International Consulting Engineer, and has 34 years of experience in the field of Instrumentation and Process Control. For the last fourteen years, he has been in private practice, has lectured at University level, has presented hundreds of e-learning courses globally, and presented many in-house and public seminars in countries such as the United States of America, Canada, England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, the United Arab Emirates, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Qatar, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Korea, Romania, Australia, New Zealand, and most of Africa. Most of his delegates have been from the Petrochemical and Oil and Gas industries, but he has also covered numerous other industries, quite extensively, as the equipment and techniques often have a lot in common. He encourages active class participation, and ensures that the workshops are kept as practical as possible, whilst still covering all of the required theoretical material. In addition to engineering qualifications (all in the field of instrumentation as well as electrical engineering), he also has an Honours degree in Psychology, which, he believes, helps him to understand delegates a lot better, and to assist them in maximising their learning experience. He also holds an international certificate (TAE40110 Certificate IV) in training and assessment, which focusses on planning assessment activities and processes, assessment validation, group-based learning, learning in the workplace, using and developing learning programs, using training packages, making a presentation, contributing to assessment and providing work skill instruction.
