TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Technician Certificate Training (4 days)
This 4 day course is not simply a watered down version of the FS Engineer course. It has been specifically designed to cater for the needs of Technicians by Engineers who have had significant technician experience in their own career development. The FS Technician (TÜV Rheinland) certificate course is run in accordance with the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program and comprises three days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, for understanding and mastering lifecycle phases for testing, maintenance and change control of safety instrumented systems in accordance with the requirements of IEC 61508 / IEC 61511. There is a 2 part competency examination on the fourth day. Practical exercises will performed throughout the course which will be based on real life examples.
The examination on the last day comprises:
- Multiple choice questions (60 marks available)
- Open written questions (40 marks available)
The pass score requirement is 75 %.
Successful participants, who must also have a minimum of 2 years of experience in the installation, development and/or maintenance support of electrical, electronic and programmable electronic Safety Instrumented Systems (E/E/PES) for process plant applications, will achieve the prestigious FS Technician (TÜV Rheinland) certificate. All FS Technicians of the TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Training Program are also listed on the TÜV Rheinland website for Functional Safety at www.tuvasi.com
The objectives of this course are to provide participants with a basic understanding of hazards and risk and how safety instrumented systems are used to protect against hazards. The main lifecycle focus will be on the principles of installation commissioning and maintenance, techniques. Guidance will be given on achieving good practice testing of the most common types of SIS subsystems. They will learn how testing and maintenance should be recorded to enable better reliability analysis of hardware components used in SIS subsystems, and how an optimised testing and maintenance regime improves plant safety and availability.
Throughout the course, emphasis will be placed on experience and realistic practical exercises, and case studies will be used to compliment the instruction.
Successful participants, who also have sufficient experience as a Technician working in the area of Functional Safety and SIS, will be awarded the prestigious FS Technician (TÜV Rheinland) certificate.
The course will provide 3 days of classroom tuition and practical guidance, mixed with exercises based on real life examples. This will be followed by a two part 3 hour proficiency examination on day 4.
Who should attend?
Technicians involved in the installation, development and/or maintenance support of electrical, electronic and programmable electronic Safety Instrumented Systems (E/E/PES) for process plant applications.
