This 4 day FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) SIS course is run in accordance with the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program and comprises three days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, for understanding and mastering the application, principles and requirements of IEC 61508 / IEC 61511. There is a four hour two part competency assessment on the fourth day. Practical exercises are performed throughout the course based on real life examples.
The assessment on the last day is in two parts with:
Successful participants, who must also have a minimum of 3 years functional safety experience, will achieve the prestigious FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) SIS certificate. All FS Engineers of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program are also listed on the
TÜV Rheinland Certipedia.
Instrument Engineers, Process Engineers and Process Safety Engineers as well as Senior Operating and Maintenance personnel who are involved in any of the lifecycle phases for safety instrumented systems from hazard and risk assessment, shut down system/fire and gas systems design to testing and maintenance.
Part 1 will cover process hazard analysis and associated risk management using the most popular and internationally adopted methods and tools. Such hazards can lead to loss of life, asset damage, loss of production and profitability, damage to the environment and company reputation. Participants will be introduced to the concepts of the main international standards that cover this area of risk assessment and risk reduction.
In Part 2 delegates will be taken through the requirements for a Safety Requirements Specification (SRS) and shown how to undertake appropriate cost effective designs for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF) and how optimal test and maintenance strategies for them can be achieved. Participants will be instructed in methods for calculating the probability of failure on demand (PFD), the probability of dangerous failure per hour (PFH), safe failure fraction and hardware fault tolerance. The concepts of failure modes, reliability and the influence of common cause failures will also be covered.
Part 3 will look at the application software requirements for safety instrumented systems (SIS) and the relationships between hardware and software architecture. This will include the development of application software specification, module testing requirements and integration with other SIS subsystems. This final day of tuition will also include techniques for undertaking more advanced SIL determination and methods for solving more complex safety instrumented functions.
On the last day
A four (4) hour two part proficiency assessment comprising:
