EFSTAS is an accepted course provider for the training “Functional Safety of Machinery” of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program.
The FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) certificate demonstrates competency in the fundamentals of Functional Safety and provides a skill set that is transferable from one work situation to another. It enables staff to fulfill responsibilities and to perform activities to recognised standards of competence on a regular basis, in order to
The course will equip participants with the knowledge for understanding and mastering the application, principles and requirements of the Functional safety of Machinery.
Successful participants, who also have sufficient functional safety experience, will achieve the prestigious FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) certificate in Machinery.
The course will provide three days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, mixed with practical exercises based on real life examples. Day four consists of a four-hour two-part proficiency examination with:
Part 1 = 70 multiple-choice questions
Part 2 = 12 open questions
Will provide an introduction to the functional safety of machinery standards, the underpinning legislation and the concept of the functional safety lifecycle and competency. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of the international standards that cover this area of machinery risk assessment and risk reduction as well as risk assessment techniques and a selection of the more commonly applied protective devices used on machines.
The topics covered are:
Further covers safety functions for machines and circuit design and introduces the detailed concepts in ISO 13849 including Failure Probability, diagnostics, common cause Performance Levels, software, systematic failures, Validation and worked examples to underpin the learning with respect to ISO 13849.
Further covers the worked examples from Day 2 and introduces the detailed concepts in IEC 62061 including Failure Probability, diagnostics, fault tolerance, safe failure fraction, common cause Performance Levels, software, systematic failures, Validation and worked examples to underpin the learning with respect to ISO 13849.
A four (4) hour two part CLOSED BOOK competency examination compromising:
Part 1 = 70 multiple-choice questions;
Part 2 = 12 open questions.
The pass score criterion is 75%
