3 Day Course

In-Company Course Only

This programme can be run at your premises and adapted to your specific requirements. Contact us if you’d like to discuss this further.

Who should attend?
If you’re a reliability or safety engineer, or a specialist who is responsible for the design of systems that require demonstrably high safety, reliability or availability, then this course is for you.

Why attend?
FMECA is one of the most established and powerful methods for identifying hazards in new plant and ranking them according to the frequency and impact of their occurrence – it has a fundamental role in any safety or reliability study. FMECA gives organisations the ability to improve performance, demonstrate safety integrity and reduce costs.

An understanding of FMECA is essential if you’re involved in the design, construction or operation of high capital value plant and you need a way of identifying which equipment faults or failures present the greatest engineering risk to your business.
