industrial instrument mechanic test
help needed for ontario canada iim red seal

hi, i'm from ontario canada and am writing a industrial instrument mechanic test. it seems difficult for many to pass. has anyone passed it out there? and if so what resources are good? thank you.

I am not sure what you are asking completely but:

I have taken the ISA CCST (Certified Control Systems Technician) certifications (through Level 3)( who are or were the leader in Instrument and Control information at one time, I have also taken the NICET (National Institute of Certified Technicians) certifications (Level 4) and the CAP certification (Certified Automation Professional).

There are numerous materials on what to study and materials available from ISA as well as NICET on their web sites, my preference is the way the NICET tests were laid out to cover a broad area of background with listings of what will be covered.

They all require time in the field as a requirement.

Trying to reach the email address, no luck.


I run a website, Controls Weekly Review, at that can help. The website brings good free educational articles to those working in the control and automation industries.

Good Luck.

Thank you, Thomas, for the link to your site. I'd been unaware of it before.
