Personnel Certification: Which is the Right One for Me?

Recording Date: January 2016

This webinar will briefly share with you many common questions that are asked each and every week about personnel certification. What are the different certification and certificate programs that exida has to offer? What are the differences? Which one(s) do you choose? What is the importance of becoming certified?

For example, 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.

Some companies now require people in safety positions to hold a CFSE certification for functional safety or even a CACE for cybersecurity.
