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


A 2-day training course to provide Technicians with underpinning knowledge of Functional Safety and SIL specifically in relation to the tasks they are responsible for. 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. This learning is confirmed through a 1.5-hour exam on the afternoon of the second day.

Good choice of venue, clean and comfortable learning environment. Excellent course, relevant, informative and professionally run. Well-presented and a good balance between interaction and teaching.
