CFSE/CFSP: Why and How to Become One
28 January 2015
This webinar will briefly share with you the importance of becoming a CFSE or CFSP and also will walk you through the process on how to become one!
As an engineer responsible for critical industrial processes, you face a myriad of challenges:
• coping with new and changing standards
• increased pressures for process uptime and plant safety
• a growing list of responsibilities
• decreased availability of support personnel
This makes it difficult to develop, maintain, and document the expertise needed to excel at your job, and the companies that you work for are being driven to run leaner operations and optimize performance. Completing a personnel functional safety certification program, such as the CFSE, can help address these challenges. Standards require proof of qualification, to insure safety knowledge and skills are up to date, and some companies now require CFSE holders to oversee safety projects and CFSP holders to execute them.
