Customer testimonials

“The FSM course, I loved it. Especially because, even though I have 15 yrs of prime experience in this field of process safety, and I had used IEC code’s for the matter of SIL determination, I have never seemed to understand the core concepts, and especially the difference between verification, validation, assessment, audit. I would recommend this course for all managers and professionals involved in functional safety and SIL.” – Rahul Patteri – OQ, Oman

“Before this course, functional safety has been different, loosely connected parts. Now everything is put together into a unit. And this e-learning version make it possible to pause, reflect and repeat if necessary. This experience greatly increases learning.” Peter Fagerström – Siemens, Sweden
