Company profile

The IDX Academy, who operates the South African Foundation Fieldbus Competence Centre, offers Foundation Fieldbus Training at the IDX offices in Fourways, South Africa. This means that if you are in South Africa (or in a nearby country), that you will no longer have to travel overseas in order to get trained in Foundation Fieldbus (FF).

Product & services

Three courses are offered by the South African Foundation Fieldbus Competence Centre. The introductory course is the Foundation Fieldbus Support Specialist Course which is targeted at individuals who do not need to know the inner working of FF, but need to understand what it is and need to be able to communicate effectively when it comes to FF topics.

The Foundation Fieldbus Technical Specialist course is aimed at technicians and maintenance personal that need to know how to install, troubleshoot and repair FF networks and systems.  A level up from that is the FOUNDATION FIELDBUS Practicing Professional Course where delegates learn the inner working of Foundation Fieldbus.

Engineers are available to do network callouts and can assist with network design. They are able to highlight potential failure points and will make recommendations based on their assessment.
