Sellersville, PA: The global leader in functional safety services and certification, exida, has launched the self-paced training course FSE 144 - IEC 61511: Operations & Maintenance. In this course, the student develops an understanding of the requirements for operations and maintenance in IEC 61511. They will also understand the importance in the functional safety lifecycle and how good and bad maintenance impacts the performance of the SIS and its SIFs. After the course, the student will have the opportunity to take the FSP exam (Operations & Maintenance Specialty).
The exida Functional Safety Practitioner (FSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in this course. The FSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CFSE or CFSP. The exam will be given at the conclusion of the training course, and is optional. The candidate must achieve a minimum of 80% on the exam in order to receive their FSP certificate.
