Using the ISA/IEC 62443 Standards to Secure Your Control Systems (IC32V)
This course provides a detailed look at how the ANSI/ISA99 standards can be used to protect your critical control systems. It also explores the procedural and technical differences between the security for traditional IT environments and those solutions appropriate for SCADA or plant floor environments.
Assessing the Cybersecurity of New or Existing IACS Systems (IC33V)
Learn to assess the cybersecurity of a new or existing IACS through the development of a zone and conduit model of the system, identification of security level targets and the development of a cybersecurity requirements specification (CRS) that can be used to document the cybersecurity requirements of the project.
IACS Cybersecurity Design & Implementation (IC34V)
Learn the information and skills to select and implement cybersecurity countermeasures for a new or existing IACS in order to achieve the target security level assigned to each IACS zone or conduit. Additionally, you will learn how to develop and execute test plans to verify that the cybersecurity of an IACS solution has properly satisfied the objectives in the cybersecurity requirements specification.
IACS Cybersecurity Operations & Maintenance (IC37V)
This course will provide you with the information and skills to detect and troubleshoot potential cybersecurity events as well as the skills to maintain the security level of an operating system throughout its lifecycle despite the challenges of an ever changing threat environment.
Management of Alarm Systems (IC39V)
This course focuses on the key activities of the alarm management lifecycle provided in the ANSI/ISA18.2 standard, Management of Alarm Systems for the Process Industries, and the IEC version, IEC62682. The activities include the alarm philosophy development, alarm rationalization, basic alarm design, advanced alarm techniques, HMI design for alarms, monitoring, assessment, management of change, and audit.
Safety Instrumented Systems: A Life-Cycle Approach (EC50V)
Gain an understanding of the engineering requirements necessary for the specification, design, analysis, and justification of safety instrumented systems for the process industries. Learn how to determine safety integrity levels (SIL) and evaluate whether proposed or existing systems meet the performance and documentation requirements defined in the ISA 84 (IEC61511) standard.
Advanced Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Selection (EC52V)
Expand your knowledge of Safety Integrity (SIL) selection using various techniques and gain insight into the factors that determine risk reduction requirements. Learn to implement different SIL selection techniques within your organization, including the risk matrix, risk graph, and LOPA (Layer Of Protection Analysis), and determine the appropriate level of performance needed for your safety systems.
Advanced Design & SIL Verification (EC54V)
Increase your knowledge of SIL (Safety Integrity Level) with the help of this advanced course. Learn how to analyze any system technology and configuration to determine if it meets the required SIL (Safety Integrity Level). You will also be able to evaluate the safety of existing systems and determine the optimum manual test interval for any system.
Fire and Gas System Engineering - Performance Based Methods for Process Facilities (EC56PV)
Fire and gas detection and suppression system design techniques that are currently in use are often considered to be unsatisfactory due to their nature of being rule of thumb and experience-oriented without any real ability to quantify risk. This has resulted in systems that are either overdesigned or under-designed. Only after the ISA TR 84.00.07, was a comprehensive framework for performance-based fire and gas design established. This course describes the techniques recommended in the technical report, along with hands-on use of the techniques and associated software tools.
Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) Level 1 Exam Review Course (TS00V)
Review the knowledge and practical skills necessary to install and maintain standard measurement and control instrumentation. Through this course, you will be able to prepare for the ISA Certified Control Systems Technician® (CCST®) Level I exam.
Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) Level II Exam Review Course (TS02V) - Virtual
This is a fast-paced review of the knowledge and skills necessary for technicians with 7+ years of practical experience who are preparing to sit for the CCST Level II exam. An explanation of the requirements, examination process and practice certification-type exams are provided.
Certified Control Systems Technician (CCST) Level III Exam Review Course (TS03V)
Learn to apply the critical areas of regulatory procedures and project documentation and interpret the best practice methodology for troubleshooting automation projects. This course will teach you a wide range of critical industry topics and assist you in reviewing the knowledge and skills areas included in the CCST Level III exam.
Automation Engineering Survival Training (AESTV)
Sharpen your process automation knowledge with this intensive week of expert-led lecture and hands-on exercises covering practical, real-world automation survival skills. ISA's seasoned instructor will guide you through topics ranging from process measurement fundamentals to advanced automation, and everything in between.
Certified Automation Professional® CAP® Exam Review Course (EC00V)
Review the knowledge and skill areas included on the CAP examination. The content is based on the job analysis domains, tasks, knowledge areas, and skill areas developed as the basis for the CAP certification exam. You can expect to learn everything from CAP basics, analytical instrumentation, and motor and drive control to MES integration and network security, deployment and operation, and work structure.
Boiler Control Systems Engineering (ES15V)
Learn the essential concepts of boiler components and their purpose. This course explains the ISA symbols used in boiler control, how to identify the engineering and control of boilers using these symbols, and a method of presenting the engineering. You will learn how to define control and ratio control fundamentals, feed forward and feed back control, cascade control, ratio control, and how these elements are implemented in boiler control systems.
Burner Management Systems Engineering Using NFPA Code 85 and ANSI/ISA77 Standards (ES16V)
Gain the hands-on experience you need to implement safe start-up, shut-down, and monitoring processes of multiple burner boiler furnaces. Learn the causes of furnace explosions and the relationship between burner management systems and boiler control systems.
Control Systems Engineering (CSE) Exam Review Course (EN00V)
Review the broad range of technical areas that will be tested by the CSE PE Exam produced by the National Council of Examiners for Engineering and Surveying (NCEES) and administered by US state professional license boards each October. Learn to apply recognized standards for symbols and documents, compare various final control elements and valves, explain basic process control loops, and a wide range of other critical topics. Registrants gain access to practice CSE exam-related questions and the Control Systems Engineering Study Guide, 5th Edition upon registration.
