Safety, cybersecurity, and alarm training in North America.

ISA training has had a reputation, perhaps undeserved, for being out of date and maybe a bit staid or old-fashioned. However the Society does manage to produce excellent and up-to-the-minute courses. One such area is in that of security and safety. A recent announcement highlights this sector and will help to reach more of the audience for training in this nowadays very necessary of automation..

aeSolutions has signed an agreement to market and deliver the International Society of Automation’s (ISA) series of safety, cybersecurity, and alarm management courses. The agreement allows aeSolutions to offer the following ISA courses throughout North America:
Several of these courses are part of ISA’s Safety and Cybersecurity Certificate Programs
(ISA84/IEC61511 Safety Instrumented Systems and ISA99/IEC 62443 Cybersecurity) which allow participants to obtain certificates to demonstrate competency in the ISA/IEC standards and associated engineering techniques and procedures.

The ISA approved instructors for the training courses include aeSolutions’ safety, cybersecurity and alarm management experts Mike Scott, John Cusimano, and John Bogdan. The first courses (EC50 and IC32) are scheduled for the week of July 7th in Anchorage, AK. A full schedule of classes is available on the AESolutions website.

“We are very excited about the opportunity to partner with ISA on their Safety, Cybersecurity, and Alarm Management training and certificate programs.” said Brian Merriman, President & CEO, aeSolutions. “This agreement allows us to offer our customers industry-recognized training plus an independent certificate program using our own expert instructors.”

Patrick Gouhin, CEO & Executive Director, ISA, notes, “Working with aeSolutions provides ISA a valuable opportunity to expand our reach using aeSolutions’ established presence, while also securing the talent of aeSolutions experts who have served ISA through their leadership in ISA18, ISA84, and ISA99 standards committees and their involvement in developing and instructing several of the ISA training courses included in this agreement."
