Are you familiar with the changes in the Canadian Electrical Code ? Come take ACM’s LOPA and SIL Verification Workshops in Calgary – August 27-28 & 29-30

We want to inspire change and make the world a safer place. That begins by giving YOU the tools to make YOUR world a safer place. That's the entire reason why we do what we do.


LOPA Workshop and SIL Verification Workshop


August 27-28 and August 29-30
in Calgary, AB


Come learn how to plan, execute and document Safety Integrity Level (SIL) determination studies, (including LOPA), perform SIL verification studies efficiently, effectively and in accordance with the IEC 61511 standard. Did you know the IEC 61511 standard is now part of the Canadian Electrical Code as CSA-C22.2 NO.61511:17 ?

Are you responsible for ensuring that Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) have been designed and engineered to appropriately mitigate an identified high level of risk?

Want to increase your chance of successfully passing the TUV (Rheinland) FS Eng. SIS exam? ACM's LOPA and Safety Integrity Level Verification (SIL-V) workshops are designed as an entry level into the world of SIL & SIS and are used as a gateway into more advanced certification courses. The LOPA workshop provides insight on why SIS are needed and at what stage of facility design they are determined to study. SIL-Verification is an extension of the knowledge gained in LOPA and focuses on how robust each safety instrumented function (SIF) must be to reduce identified risks to a tolerable level within the facility. Each workshop is two days long, they are held ACM in Calgary. The learnings gained from these two courses will prepare you to speak to the justification and design of SIS.

With these 2 workshops, ACM helps participants understand the underlying principles behind two of the most commonly used SIL Determination Methods (Layer of Protection Analysis and Calibrated Risk Graph) and use real-life examples to teach how to design one or multiple Safety Instrumented Functions (SIFs) to meet specified integrity levels.
