IChemE independently assessed the Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) Foundation Online Training course and materials benchmarked against their internationally recognised professional standards.


The course is now part of an exclusive range of training programmes endorsed by IChemE to support the professional development of chemical, process and biochemical engineers.

Justin Blades, IChemE deputy chief executive, said: 

“As a professional body, one of IChemE’s main aims is to encourage a commitment to qualifications, standards and excellence in the chemical and process industries.

“Our accreditation service enables all organisations to demonstrate, independently, the high quality of their training programmes to advance the chemical engineering profession.

“FIABLE Limited (owner of eFunctionalSafety) have met our rigorous standards and we congratulate them on their achievement and contribution to improving skills and knowledge in the sector.”

Jon Keswick, Managing Director of FIABLE Limited, stated:

"This is the first of several online training courses we will be putting through an accreditation process. We're very happy to have achieved this first step along the road."
