About this course

A self-paced, online course, aimed at instrument technicians & other process operations personnel who have the duty of sustaining the safety integrity of modern safety instrumented systems (SIS).

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) are one of the key independent layers for protecting processes in applications such as safe isolation of storage tanks, turbine overspeed protection and burner management; just to name a few. The modern SIS is typically a system comprising multiple sensors, a logic solver and final elements which are relied upon to react to potentially hazardous events with minimal operator intervention. The goal is to design an SIS that can detect process excursions from the norm, and automatically react to prevent escalation into an incident.

What they say about our online courses

We started a team of people on the SIS Foundation course in April 2018, and we've had great feedback from those who have started and completed the course. This is the most practical, cost-effective and long-term deliverable way of training teams who need to know about safety systems.

You could sit a team of people in a training class and get minimal feedback from the course tutor about each individual's end understanding.

The consistent monitoring and feedback provided by our online courses means you get much more information at the end about each individual's learning.

The course was well presented, contained useful information and was easy to navigate. Overall I have increased my knowledge and recommend this course to anyone in this type of industry.
