Testimonials


Trevor P. Trainee Control Systems Engineer

I have previously done Functional Safety Awareness courses but the knowledge learned in this course far surpassed what I have learned in the past.


Zachary B. Process Engineer

The course provides a strong foundational knowledge and competency for technical personnel new to functional safety. Thank you Jon and team for such a wonderful course!


Ngor D. Process Automation Safety and Commissioning Engineer

Great course! I have learned so much in regard to SIS, functional safety and SIS Safety Lifecycle from Hazard& Risk Assessment to Decommissioning of a SIF or SIS. The assessment quiz and practices questions at the end of each topic has prepared me to execute my current role effectively.
