Online Customer Testimonials

I thoroughly enjoyed the Safety Instrumented System course. Considering it is a foundation course, it teaches you some extremely useful and relevant information, whilst pushing and testing your knowledge of each completed module by means of a test at the end of each stage.


C&I Engineer, UK

The course content, formulation, presentation, example and testing method are excellent. Practical approach. Excellent course for practical application.


Lead Process Engineer, Qatar

Overall a very good course and investment. The cartoons with Bob were great; makes association with everyday events surrounding value of the safety requirements specification more useful.”

Project Engineer, Saudi Arabia

The SIS Foundation e-Learning is one of the most comprehensive Functional Safety courses available through the internet. The course content targets Functional Safety Management, as well as engineering and operations according to IEC 61511:2016 Ed. 2. The course gives a special insight on Safety Instrumented Systems and their management in the process industry.
