  4. Interpret measurement and control terminology
  5. Compare the methods and devices used in temperature, pressure, level, flow measurement
  6. Understand the operation and components of a feedback control loop
  7. Understand the fundamental concepts of controller tuning
  8. Compare different control system architectures including single loop controllers, DCS, and PLCs
  9. Understand why a systematic approach to troubleshooting is most effective
  10. Follow specified procedures for proper loop check-out
  11. Verify, locate, and identify performance problems and the causes of the problems
  12. Take or recommend appropriate follow-up procedures to minimize problem recurrence
  13. Identify the common causes of sensor, transmitter, controller, and final control element problems
  14. Troubleshoot control systems
  15. Apply DCS functions for troubleshooting
  16. Understand pneumatic and electronic loops
  17. Apply safety practices for start-up
  18. Check and utilize control loop documentation
