Nov 7, 2017- The twenty second India batch of the renowned Certified Functional Safety Certification Course will take place from 20th to 23rd Nov 2017 in the Mumbai metropolitan region. This will be organized by Risknowlogy. Just like past batches, this batch is also seeing a good deal of interest from participants who not only wish to learn about Functional Safety and SIL but also earn International certification. This three and half day workshop will cover all aspects of Functional Safety with a special emphasis on IEC 61511, the de-facto Process Industry oriented Functional safety standard.
The first three days would be the training workshop and the last half day will be the written exam. The workshop will cover the following:
What you will get:
Who has attended this program earlier?
This program is held all over the world. Hundreds of companies, including major Fortune 500 corporations and other well known organizations, send their engineers and managers to this program. In India, it has been attended by participants from Aker, ONGC, EIL, BPCL, Reliance,UHDE, Jacobs, L & T, Petrofac, McDermott, Siemens, GE, Invensys, Cairn, Metso, Akzo Nobel, ABS, IRCA and many more…
Who is the trainer ?
The Trainer will be a qualified Functional Safety Expert, having decades of experience in Functional Safety, as well as training, who will travel from Europe, especially for the training.
