Course description

Effective Alarm Management -Modular Training Courses

This ‘modularised’ set of training courses has been designed to enable a flexible approach to the subject matter based on delegate experience and learning needs and where your organisation currently stands with regards to your alarm management journey.

Essential Alarm Management (Module 1)

This module is aimed at anyone with a general interest in alarm management appreciation and awareness and is appropriate for attendance by a broad range of delegates from within operations, engineering, projects and senior management teams.

This is a good introduction to anyone who is embarking on their alarm management
journey 

Application of Alarm Management (Module 2)

This module builds and further details the concepts introduced in module one. This will include practical examples to demonstrate the techniques associated with addressing continuous improvement for your alarm systems. This second module is appropriate for delegates who are involved in addressing alarm management requirements within their own operations. 

Advanced Alarm Management (Module 3)

This module will feature enhanced alarm management techniques including peak alarm management and the role of alarms within safety instrumented systems (SIS). This third module is appropriate for delegates who have completed the earlier training modules and whom wish to further enhance their training requirements as recognised practitioners and who are directly involved in addressing alarm management requirements within their own operations.

It is not a prerequisite to attend the previous modules, however it is recommended.
Furthermore, if you attend all 3 modules, you will receive the ABB Alarm Management Practitioners certificate.
