Process industry functional safety, cybersecurity, and alarm management provider, exida, created an Alarm Management Practitioner (AMP) Program, a new certificate program that works with the company’s existing functional safety and ICS cybersecurity certificate programs.

The AMP Program is designed to teach end users, integrators, suppliers, and regulators how to realistically apply the most important concepts from the ISA-18.2 and IEC 62682 alarm management standards.

The program was developed by exida experts who were instrumental in writing the ISA-18.2 standard and associated technical reports. It leverages exida’s experience from hundreds of alarm management projects to deliver the most important principles and the keys for success.

The AMP program will be offered in conjunction with the exida Academy Training course ALM 101: Introduction to Alarm Management Practices & Principles, which is offered generically or for specific control systems.

“Exida’s AMP Program was developed to share what the ISA-18.2 and IEC 62682 really mean and how to apply them pragmatically,” said Todd Stauffer, exida director of alarm management and voting member ISA-18.2. “Taking the course and completing the certificate demonstrates that the practitioner is prepared to support key alarm management activities, such as alarm philosophy development, alarm rationalization, and alarm issue remediation.”

A list of AMP certificate holders will be maintained on the exida website.
