This course provides an overview of Layer of Protection Analysis, or LOPA as it is more commonly known, that is geared toward people that will be attending and participating in a LOPA session but are not expecting to lead or document the session.
The online training module includes a lecture video that lasts approximately one hour, along with an online quiz to ensure comprehension of the course materials. After viewing the lecture and successfully completing the quiz, you can download a copy of the personalized course completion certificate.
In addition to the core training materials, a couple of reference documents are provided for you to download and review. The first item is the course workbook and study guide, which contains the information directly presented in the course slides. The second item is the Kenexis SIS Engineering Handbook, which provides an excellent overview on SIS engineering in general.
