This will take place in Manchester on 15-18 March and 04-07 October and in Aberdeen on 07-10 June.

Tino is an accepted course provider within the Functional Safety Program for Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) of TÜV Rheinland.  The course focuses on functional safety aspects for the process, oil & gas, petrochemical and chemical industries according to IEC 61508 / 61511.

Course objective
The main objective is to provide all engineers involved in safety instrumented systems with elementary and necessary knowledge about functional safety, based on the leading international functional safety standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511 with competency confirmed by the TÜV Rheinland upon successfully passing the exam.

Who Should Attend?
–  Plant and quality managers
–  System integrators and independent consultants
–  Control and process engineers
–  Maintenance and instrumentation engineers
–  Managers of engineering departments
–  Risk, reliability, safety and quality engineers
–  Loss prevention engineers
–  Sales engineers - Sales managers - Marketing specialists for safety-products, systems and services
–  Technical staff involved in any part of SIS lifecycle that need or want to develop their competency in Functional Safety

Why Should You Attend?
IEC 61508 ed2.0, released in April 2010, clearly indicates as a ‘Normative’ requirement, that anybody involved in safety lifecycle activities shall be competent to carry out the activities for which they are accountable.
Take advantage of this course, examination and certification to prove your clients, peers and management, your competency in the field of Functional Safety.
