Explosives Safety | 13-15 July 2021 | Webcast

13 July 2021 - 15 July 2021

This course is designed primarily for individuals who develop, assemble, test, inspect, approve, transport, store or in some other way handle explosive items or material, the Explosive Safety Course is an overview of hazards inherent to explosive operations; associated safety precautions; and methods to analyze, test and obtain approval for explosive activities. This course is going to be offered as a hybrid. There will be limited slots for those that wish to attend in person. This will be on a first come/first serve basis. If you would like to attend at our site, select "Attendance: On-Site" during checkout. Otherwise, you will be registered as a virtual attendee.


Software System Safety Engineering | 16-19 August 2021 | Webcast

16 August 2021 - 19 August 2021

Software System Safety Engineering is an integrated combination of Software System Safety (SwSS) and software engineering technologies as applied to system safety. It describes generic SwSS processes adaptable to a variety of customer needs, and is tailorable to specific projects and software development processes. A 4th day has been added to demonstrate the practical use of the model-based "Medini" tool by ANSYS. This tool provides an efficient and comprehensive process to document functional failure conditions, hazards, safety requirements, and risk mitigations as part of objective safety evidence. **SEE EVENT DETAILS TAB BELOW.

Reliability Engineering | 23-25 August 2021 | Webcast

23 August 2021 - 25 August 2021

The Reliability Engineering training course is designed for professionals wanting to advance their understanding and knowledge in reliability engineering tools and techniques and their application in technical assessments and special studies. **SEE EVENT DETAILS TAB BELOW. IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE REGISTERING.


Probabilistic Risk Assessment | 26 August 2021 | Webcast

26 August 2021 - 26 August 2021

Probabilistic Risk Assessment (PRA) is a comprehensive, structured, and logical analysis methodology aimed at identifying and assessing risks in complex technological systems. PRA is generally used for low-probability, high-consequence events for which limited statistical data exist. This course is intended to provide a better understanding of the PRA process, tools, methodologies, and their applications in assessing the risk of complex technological systems. The material in this course is based on over 30 years of extensive industry and government experience in systems analysis, probabilistic risk assessment, and reliability engineering. **SEE EVENT DETAILS TAB BELOW. IMPORTANT INFORMATION BEFORE REGISTERING.
