ISA and the Automation Standards Compliance Institute (ASCI) have introduced three certificate programs the organization say will increase knowledge and awareness of the ISA84 standard.
Each certificate program includes specialized training on ISA84 and an exam offered through Prometric testing centers. Those who register for the training course and the certificate program and successfully complete the exam will be issued an ISA certificate stating they have successfully completed the specified program.
The three certificate programs available for ISA84 are Safety Instrumented Systems Specialist, Safety Integrity Level Determination Specialist and Safety Instrumented Systems Hardware Design and Analysis Specialist.
All ISA84 Safety Instrumented Systems Certificates must be renewed every three years. To renew a certificate, applicants must complete an application and document a minimum of two years of work experience in process safety. ISA and ASCI define a year as 1,500 hours of active employment, which equates to a cumulative total of 3,000 hours of documented work experience during the three-year renewal period, and successful completion of the ISA84 Certificate Program Renewal Seminar (online web seminar).
