Learn the fundamentals of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) with these two expert-led ISA process safety training courses
Process Safety Fundamentals teaches technicians and operators the principles governing the use of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS), and reviews basic definitions, concepts, standards, and the role of personnel in the Safety Life Cycle of SIS. Emphasis is placed on the importance of functional safety, maintenance in the operational phase, and satisfying industry standards and legal requirements. Learn More
Safety Instrumented Systems Design, Analysis and Justification outlines the engineering requirements of safety instrumented systems for the process industries. Students will learn how to determine safety integrity levels and evaluate whether proposed or existing systems meet the performance and documentation requirements defined in the ISA 84 (IEC61511) standard. Registrants can take the course only or, for those seeking certification, can arrange to take the course and the ISA84 SIS Fundamentals Specialist exam. Learn More
Take your Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) knowledge to new heights with these two advanced, expert-led ISA process safety training courses
Advanced Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Selection, a follow-up course to EC50 and a requirement for the reveals how to optimize system performance and provides hands-on examples of SIL selection. Registrants can take the course only or, for those seeking certification, can arrange to take the course and the ISA84 SIL Selection Specialist exam. Learn More
Advanced Design and SIL Verification (EC54), a requirement for the, focuses on analyzing system technology and configuration to determine required SIL and whether systems are safe and meet performance requirements. Registrants can take the course only or, for those seeking certification, can arrange to take the course and the ISA84 SIL Verification Specialist exam. Learn More
