Mark I & II Multiplex (MUX) Control System – Hydraulic

Five-Day Course Description
This course covers Cameron’s Mark I & II multiplex (MUX)
control systems, discussing how the control systems
function and communicate from a hydraulic perspective.

Who Should Attend?
Personnel who will operate the equipment or personnel
designated to oversee operation of the equipment should
attend this course.

Before participating in this course, each student should
have basic product knowledge.

This is an instructor-led (lecture-based) course, in which
discussions are highly encouraged. Short quizzes are
given throughout the course as well as at the end of
each module. Instructors are available at the beginning
and end of each class to answer questions and/or review
information. In order to receive credit for satisfactorily
completing this course, students are required to pass the
comprehensive final exam with a score of at least 70%.
Certificates of Completion are awarded to all students
who successfully receive credit for the course.
