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 certification 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 training 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.
  • Compliance 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.

The more complex the technology, the more functional safety experts are needed. Our Functional Safety for the Process Industry Certification Program (FSCP) offers you as an employee the best opportunity to certify your functional safety competence according to IEC61511. As a company, you have proof that you can deploy your employees who have passed the exam in the appropriate positions in the security lifecycle.

This certification program consists of an instructor-led in a virtual classroom 3-day training and a proctored examination on the 4th day (3 hrs).

3 training days + 3 h examination Level 1, 2, or 3

Instructor-led training in a virtual classroom means the course is Live Online. Participants will learn through online teaching. Lectures, case studies, group exercises, discussions, problem solving, examples with explanation, assignments and/or quizzes happen in the virtual classroom training. Participants need to connect to the class from any internet accessible location. Each module is delivered live using webinar technology, creating a virtual classroom learning environment. Live sessions provide you with direct access to the trainer so you can ask questions, understand complex concepts and share ideas with peers. Webcam and microphone are REQUIRED to interact with the instructor and/or other participants.

The training program culminates in an online proctored exam in which you will need your webcam on.

The course content and structure are designed by the domain experts from TÜV SÜD. With immense experience and knowledge in the relevant standards, our team of product specialists and technical experts at TÜV SÜD, developed the course content based on current business landscape and market requirements.


Participants that attend the training will receive a TÜV SÜD Certificate of Attendance. And after successful completion of the examination a TÜV SÜD FSCP Certificate: “Process IEC 61511 Functional Safety Engineer” or other levels as stated in the program if prerequisites are met prior to enrollment.

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.
