"Their courses are especially effective in providing a detailed understanding of the concepts of Functional Safety for both beginners and experienced personnel. Class exercises allow concepts to be absorbed and applied effectively especially where calculations/analyses are involved.”
exida training gave us a great introduction to Alarm Management and the IEC62682 Standard. The instructor Todd Stauffer is highly competent within the area of Alarm Management and has great communication skills.
"This course (ALM-102) was outstanding. The content was dead on and specific enough to the various control systems. I would recommend this course to anybody that is involved in Alarm Management. I want to thank you for the great information that you passed on."
I’d like to say many thanks to you for teaching an outstanding course. I hope to someday gain half the knowledge you have in functional safety. This was one of the best classes I’ve ever had. I’d like to let you know that I passed the CFSP exam!
