Several online instructor led virtual courses were just added to the process safety schedule in July.
Below is the content from the ISA.org website for each of the courses. To find out more, go to https://www.isa.org/training-and-certification/isa-training/instructor-led/virtual-instructor-led-training.
Safety Instrumented Systems: A Life-Cycle Approach (EC50V)
12-16 July 2021 Gain an understanding of the engineering requirements necessary for the specification, design, analysis, and justification of safety instrumented systems for the process industries. Learn how to determine safety integrity levels (SIL) and evaluate whether proposed or existing systems meet the performance and documentation requirements defined in the ISA 84 (IEC61511) standard.
Advanced Safety Integrity Level (SIL) Selection (EC52V)
26-27 July 2021 Expand your knowledge of Safety Integrity (SIL) selection using various techniques and gain insight into the factors that determine risk reduction requirements. Learn to implement different SIL selection techniques within your organization, including the risk matrix, risk graph, and LOPA (Layer Of Protection Analysis), and determine the appropriate level of performance needed for your safety systems.
Advanced Design & SIL Verification (EC54V)
28-29 July 2021 Increase your knowledge of SIL (Safety Integrity Level) with the help of this advanced course. Learn how to analyze any system technology and configuration to determine if it meets the required SIL (Safety Integrity Level). You will also be able to evaluate the safety of existing systems and determine the optimum manual test interval for any system.
Fire and Gas System Engineering - Performance Based Methods for Process Facilities (EC56PV)
19-21 July 2021 Fire and gas detection and suppression system design techniques that are currently in use are often considered to be unsatisfactory due to their nature of being rule of thumb and experience-oriented without any real ability to quantify risk. This has resulted in systems that are either overdesigned or under-designed. Only after the ISA TR 84.00.07, was a comprehensive framework for performance-based fire and gas design established. This course describes the techniques recommended in the technical report, along with hands-on use of the techniques and associated software tools.
