Based in the North of England, Exloc Instruments provide instrumentation products for the process industry, specialising in the supply of interfacing, display and alarm solutions. We work with market leading suppliers to provide cost effective, high quality solutions designed for both harsh and hazardous (Ex) Locations.

In some cases the requirement for hazardous area equipment is teamed with the requirement for an overall site or application to meet certain functional safety requirements, such as safety integrity levels.

Whilst the IEC 61508 / 61511 standards have been published for some time there continues to be  confusion as to where the responsibility for the different aspects of safe working practices lie.

As such, we are pleased to recommend Functional Safety Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) vocational training, presented by Worldwide renowned Functional Safety Expert, Tino Vande Capelle. 

The 4 day course is aimed at Safety Instrumented System professionals and focuses on functional safety aspects of the process industries. The main objective is to provide all engineers involved in safety instrumented systems (SIS) with vital knowledge about functional safety, based on the leading international functional safety standards IEC 61508 and IEC 61511.

….. So Why Should YOU Attend?

IEC 61508 ed2.0, released in April 2010, clearly indicates as a ‘normative’ requirement, that anybody  involved in safety lifecycle activities shall be competent to carry out the activities for which they are accountable.  The standard has gone from advocating a recommendation to being a requirement.

This course provides you with the opportunity to gain certification by the TÜV Rheinland to prove to your clients, peers and management, your knowledge and competency in the field of Functional Safety.

Success in the final examination certifies your functional safety knowledge, adding great value to your professional career.

Participant eligibility requirements:
In accordance with the FS Engineer (TÜV Rheinland) Program the course requires an entry criteria of either:-

  • Minimum 3 years experience in the field of functional safety.
  • University degree (Masters or Bachelors degree in Engineering) or equivalent engineer level responsibilities status certified by employer.

Course duration is 3.5 days with a 4 hours closed book exam in the morning of the on the final day.

Please contact Exloc Instruments directly for further details.

Tino Vande Capelle will also be speaking at the forthcoming Hazardex Conference and Exhibition in Runcorn on 26th February, presenting the paper “Why Is It so Difficult to Learn From Someone Else’s Mistakes?” The seminar will begin with a short overview of some of the major accidents in process safety, followed by a discussion on how these accidents have influenced the safety standards & culture.
