FSE 244 – SIL Verification with exSILentia®

Course Information


FSE 244 explains how the exSILentia SILver™ module is used to perform a SIL verification for Safety Instrumented Functions. Students will learn to leverage the tool to model different SIF architectures ranging from simple 1oo1 configuration to more complex examples. This course also covers review of the key parameters that determine the probability of failure of a SIF as well as minimum hardware fault tolerance and systematic capability aspects. It will show the impact of these parameters on the detailed design, implementation, and operation of the SIF. Furthermore, students will learn how to transfer data from the SILver™ module to the Design SRS module and subsequently complete the Design SRS requirements. Finally, the course covers the impact of proof testing and specification of proof test procedures using the Proof Test Generator module.

Course Schedule

 The FSP Exam (SIL verification with exSILentia Specialty):

The exida Functional Safety Practitioner (FSP) program is a certificate program that provides confirmation that an attendee shows competency by retaining the knowledge presented in this course. The FSP program also provides an analysis of where the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses lie, helping participants judge their competency level if interested in obtaining a certification like the CFSE or CFSP. The exam will be given at the conclusion of the training course. The candidate must achieve a minimum of 80% on the exam in order to receive their FSP certificate.
