Face to face Training3 DaysIntermediateVirtual Classroom

TÜV SÜD is a global pioneer in IEC 61511 functional safety and has trained professionals in all companies and industries over the years. The IEC 61511 safety standard requires companies to ensure that the persons entrusted with functional safety tasks have a sufficient level of competence and are suitably qualified. Functional Safety Training Course for Process Industry – IEC 61511 and IEC 61508 is an ideal program for organizations that want their functional safety professionals to become certified functional safety experts based on safety instrumented systems (SIS).

This training course is designed as a combined capsule of different modules based on years of practical experience in the field of Functional Safety and participation in relevant standardisation committees. The course imparts the required knowledge relating to the existing IEC 61511 international standards for safety-relevant electrical / electronic systems, it covers the design and management requirements for SIS throughout the entire safety life cycle. Its scope includes initial concept, design, implementation, operation, and maintenance including decommissioning.

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) is one of the most important layers of protection against accidents in a process industry. The design and implementation of such systems meets good engineering practices and avoids failures in the process industry like chemicals, refineries, petrochemicals, power etc. IEC 61511 covers the application of electrical, electronic, and programmable electronic equipment.

For a company, a team of certified professionals demonstrates its commitment to functional safety and thus meets one of the requirements of IEC 61508/IEC 61511 qualification.
