What is the CSIA?
The Control Systems Integrators Association (CSIA) is a not-for-profit global trade organization for control systems integrators that are dedicated to advancing the industry of control systems integration.
The CSIA strives to allow industries to achieve low-risk, safe, and successful automation technology applications through the improvement of business practices, skills, and management. The CSIA offers certification and membership to a control systems integrator who demonstrates outstanding business and management practices and technical proficiency.
Why is CSIA certification significant?
A CSIA certification is a distinction of excellence for a control system integrator who has met the standards and criteria as defined by the CSIA Best Practices and Benchmarks manual. In order to meet the criteria, applicants undergo audits by the CSIA which includes review 79 of the manual’s most essential guidelines pertaining to general management, human resources management, marketing and business development, financial management, project management, quality assurance, disaster recovery plans, and more. Only 100 companies worldwide have achieved CSIA certified status.
What it means to clients
For industrial clients, choosing a certified control system integrator means they are choosing CSIA Best Practices for their business. Preparing for and successfully completing the audit is no easy feat, but the result is improved business operations and marketing advantages. The CSIA certification is the foundation upon which system integration expertise and experience is based.
