This certification consists of two levels that test the fundamentals of functional safety engineering in accordance with IEC 61508 and 61511.
As an essential risk reduction measure, Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) play a crucial role in the majority of process facilities throughout the world. Within the context of functional safety, the measures that must be taken to meet the needs and requirements for the entire life cycle of safety-instrumented systems are discussed. During the life cycle of safety-related systems based on electrical, electronic, and/or programmable electronic (E/E/PE) technology, all phases, including the design activities, verification & validation, commissioning & start up, the normal operation phase, and decommissioning phase, must be managed in accordance with the requirements of the associated international standards, such as IEC 61508/ IEC 61511.
Certification Program Objectives:
- Clear understanding of Functional Safety Life Cycle concepts as per IEC 61511
- Importance of Functional Safety Life Cycle concepts and their relationship to PHA/Risk assessments
- Management of necessary processes for Functional Safety Life Cycle concepts
- Comprehensive understanding of SIL determination
- Knowledge of SIL verification and validation
- Understanding of associated requirements in the context of required Safety Instrumented Functions (SIF)
- Knowledge of implementation of Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
- Control of risks associated with hazardous scenarios in process facilities.
- To be certified as CSILP, student should take up a 1.5 hours exam at the designated examination centers.
- The qualifying exam would consist of 50 multiple choice questions, testing core certification modules.
- Professionals with relevant experience and other qualifying criteria may be exempted from the examination.
- Presentation slides
- Study references
Upon successful completion of the CSILP training, participants will receive a “Certified Safety Integrity Level Professional” certificate.
