IICA Functional Safety Engineer training courses 2021

The Institute of Instrumentation, Control & Automation (IICA) has announced Functional Safety Engineer training courses for safety instrumented systems for 2021. Applicants with at least three years of applicable experience who successfully complete the course and exam will be issued an FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) certificate by TÜV Rheinland.

The course will be facilitated by Bob Weiss, who has over 35 years’ experience in functional safety. His presentation, Functional Safety Demystified, can be viewed here.

The course is suitable for engineers and designers with some experience in safety instrumented systems (SIS). Engineers from non-process industries with experience in functional safety in their discipline (such as machine protection, aviation or rail) and looking for an understanding of how functional safety is applied in the process industries will also find this course appropriate. Engineers who do not satisfy the experience requirements for the FSEng (TÜV Rheinland) certificate, but who are looking for an understanding of the key principles, will find the course useful and can apply for certification later when they have gained the requisite experience. The course is not suitable for recent graduates with limited experience.

The course contains:

  • updated content structured around the IEC 61511 life cycle, emphasising what you have to do to comply;
  • vendor-neutral material;
  • balanced theoretical and practical presentation using modern interactive presentation, case studies, discussion and video demonstration;
  • some non-examinable advanced material for more experienced participants.

The course duration is four days plus a half-day exam.

Places are limited and those interested can book early to receive a discount.

The courses will be held in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne:
