Trainer Spotlight: Shane Filer

December 1, 2021 | Company News

NSI’s General Manager, Shane Filer, has a long history of doing industrial instrumentation and automation training for companies and trade shows – first with Leeds & Northrup (L&N) and Honeywell in the late 90’s, and finally with NSI for the past 20 years.

His main area of specialty with L&N / Honeywell was liquid analytical measurements (pH, ORP, conductivity, and dissolved oxygen), mainly focusing on the use of the measurements in power plants, semiconductor plants, pharmaceutical facilities, and food/beverage facilities.  He has taught and presented at dozens of ISA events and trade shows.  Specific areas of training with NSI for the last 20 years include industrial wireless systems, hazardous area electrical protection methods, and gas leak detection systems.

Shane has a Bachelor’s of Electrical Engineering from Grove City College, and also enjoys coaching his kids in sports, teaching at his church, and instructing anyone who will listen in the fine art of telling Dad jokes.

Speaking of which, “When does a joke become a dad joke? When it becomes apparent!”
