Miami, FL, United States, 2010/01/22 - Learn all about Safety Instrumented Systems, with the help of a new e-learning course launched by Abhisam Software. This new e-learning course covers all aspects of Safety Instrumented Systems and can be downloaded immediately to your computer.
Safety Instrumented Systems (known as SIS for short) are are used to ensure machinery, personnel and environment safety in a number of places, all over the world. There are thousands of such safety instrumented systems in diverse application areas, ranging all the way from controlling hazardous processes in the chemical industry to flying passenger aircraft safely, but unfortunately, hardly any training resources for those who wish to understand them in detail. To meet this global demand for a good, comprehensive, complete, easy to understand training course, that can be completed in the comfort of one's home or office, at an individual's own pace, without time constraints and further, which would be affordable, Abhisam Software (abhisam.com) has launched this first of a kind e-learning course on Safety Instrumented Systems.
This course provides crystal clear understanding of all aspects of Safety Instrumented Systems to engineers and technicians, working in the process industries such as chemicals, petrochemicals, oil & gas, pulp and paper, fertilizers, power plants and others. It will also be very useful to engineering staff working with design consultants, EPC companies, automation system vendors, government authorities and other regulatory bodies.
The course is very extensive, with seven modules, that cover all areas of Safety Instrumented Systems. It is NOT a rehashed power point presentation. It is completely new, with plenty of interactive animations and simulations, graphics, real life example problems with solutions and explanatory text, that help the learner grasp intricate details about the subject easily. It is equivalent to about two days of full time classroom training.
The course consists of SEVEN modules as given below
1. Introduction to SIS
2. Hazards, Risks and their Analysis
3. Failures & Reliability
4. Safety Integrity Level
5. SIS Standards
6. SIS in practice
7. SIS Testing and Maintenance.
There is also a self assessment test at the end of the course, that enables learners to gauge their own understanding of this subject.
