This course focuses on the engineering requirements for the specification, design, analysis, and justification of safety instrumented systems for the process industries. Students will learn how to determine safety integrity levels and evaluate whether proposed or existing systems meet the performance and documentation requirements defined in the ISA84 (IEC 61511) standard.
This course is required for the ISA84 Safety Instrumented Systems Certificate Programs. You can register for the course only or for the certificate program which includes course and exam.
Those who successfully complete this course and pass the exam receive the designation of ISA84 SIS Fundamentals Specialist.
You will be able to:
Differentiate between process control and safety control
Implement the ISA84 (IEC 61511) standard
Evaluate process risk levels
Select Safety Integrity Levels (SILs) for Safety Instrumented Functions (SIFs) using a variety of techniques
Analyze the performance of different logic system technologies
Analyze the performance of various sensor, logic, and final element configurations, as well as the impact of diagnostics, test intervals, common cause, system size, imperfect manual testing, and bypassing
Determine optimum system test intervals
Specify and select safety instrumented systems
Apply the documentation requirements for process safety management, regulations, and industry standards
