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 meet good engineering practices and avoid failures in the process industry like chemicals, refineries, petrochemicals, power etc. IEC 61511 covers the application of electrical, electronic, and programmable electronic equipment.

IEC 61511 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.
This program 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 standardization committees. The course imparts you required knowledge relating to the existing IEC 61511 standards for safety-relevant electrical/electronic systems.

In this training, you'll learn,

  • FSM compliance audits and certifications can be obtained for all stakeholders involved in the implementation (e.g. plant owners, technical consultants, system integrators and product manufacturers/developers) of the functional safety project and the entire audit and certification process
  • Compliant with IEC 61511 FSM requirements ensure minimization of systematic errors
  • The project is delivered in accordance with international standards IEC 61511 and IEC 61508 regarding safety objectives

This training consists of the instructor-led in a virtual classroom 3-day training only. It does not include the exam for certification.


Participants that attend the training will receive a TUV SUD Certificate of Attendance.

There are no admission requirements for participation in this training. Recommended is Basic IEC 61508 modules 1-3 if this is your first contact with functional safety development.
