Functional Safety & SIL for Instrument Technicians (IEC 61511) Training Course

The course introduces the key concepts of functional safety and functional safety management in accordance with IEC 61511 and goes on to develop that understanding through a series of classroom discussions, activities, videos and exercises. The key learning outcomes are to help Technicians understand their role in the FS lifecycle - to ensure that safety instrumented systems are operated and maintained in a way that protects their integrity.
