Since launching SIS Foundation, our IChemE accredited online Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) e-Learning course in 2016, we have now reached customers as far and wide as Australia, Azerbaijan, Canada, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Norway, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, UAE, USA, and of course the UK where we're based.


Many customers have reported how they find that self-paced online functional safety training can really help supplement learning with their busy schedules. Subscribers have access to the course modules 24 hours per day during their subscription period, meaning they can pick up short courses in slack periods and drop them easily when things get busy. 

The "bite-size" nature of the course modules makes stopping and re-starting training courses a breeze

Safety Instrumented Systems FOUNDATION Section 1

An introduction to functional safety in the context of general safety and the process industry. It includes a historical outline of the development of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) electrical and electronic equipment, from the 1960s to today. The full SIS safety life-cycle is introduced, including an overview of its required inputs, procedures, and expected outputs at every stage of the life of a system.

No matter where you are based, provided you have a reasonable internet connection, you can log in and begin learning; even on a tablet or mobile phone.

Our professional Learning Management System provides fully automated tracking showing which courses, modules and assessment have already been completed. Team leaders can access reporting features which show user progress and results of each assessment. This is a crucial part of competence tracking, and can provide valuable evidence for functional safety assessment and audit.
