The IICA Institute of Instrumentation Control and Automation Safety Instrumented Systems Course has been developed in Australia by IICA for automation and control professionals and risk engineers in the process industries. The course is based on the latest editions of IEC 61511 and IEC 61508 and provides detailed insights and fundamental understanding of functional safety concepts, industry standards, and the methodologies used to determine and maintain safety integrity levels (SILs) in safety instrumented systems used in the process industries. It emphasises the actions you need to take to comply with the functional safety standards.
The primary aim of the course is to equip all participants with a practical understanding of IEC 61511 such that they can understand and participate in those lifecycle activities relevant to their particular job role. It is not intended that by itself the course (including successful completion of the examination) is sufficient to allow successful candidates to lead lifecycle activities unsupervised, but it does provide a foundation for development into these roles, or for fulfilment of these roles by individuals already having sufficient pre-course experience.
The course is suitable for:
(8:30am – 5:00pm)
(8:30am – 12:30pm)
(1:00pm – 5:00pm)
To obtain the TÜV FS Engineer certificate participants must have:
Participants who do not have the required business experience may participate in the training as well as the exam. If they pass the exam successfully the TÜV FS Engineer certificate will be issued to them as soon as the necessary 3 years of business experience in the area of functional safety are achieved.
The examination is in two parts over 4 hours:
The questions are designed to allow candidates to demonstrate a grasp of basic concepts and the ability to apply these concepts in real-life applications. The exam is “closed book”, although some formulae and tables will be provided for reference, as the exam is not a test of the ability to memorise standards clauses. A calculator with scientific notation will be required.
Candidates must pass both parts and meet the experience and qualification requirements to be issued the FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) certificate.
The price per person is A$4,300 if registered at least three weeks prior to the course date, and A$4750 for late registration.
