Code Title Description


Improving PSM Performance

Process safety management (PSM) programs have been implemented at many companies for over 20 years, based on meeting regulatory requirements and on the fundamental need to safely manage process hazards at their facilities.  Many companies and facilities, though, continue to have PSM performance problems, potentially resulting in catastrophic incidents, serious injuries, lost business, and high costs.  This course is intended to highlight common performance problems with PSM programs and to introduce proven methods and practical approaches for improving performance.


ISM Code Internal Auditor

A concentrated, three-day course that focuses on the ISM Code and the requirements for the internal audit program. This course is intended for marine companies that are both just starting out with their Safety Management System and those who have already established an internal audit program and wish to improve it.


ISO 14001 Internal Auditor

This course prepares attendees to meet the internal audit requirements of ISO 14001. Delegates will learn how auditors interpret the requirements of the standard and how to plan, conduct, and report on the results of an internal EMS audit. Auditing methodologies are based on ISO 19011:2002, Guidelines for Quality and Environmental Management Systems Auditing, an international standard.


ISO 27001 Internal Auditor

This course is intended to provide participants with the knowledge to undertake internal audits for an information security management system according to the ISO standard. The ISO/IEC 27001:2005 is an international standard that specifies the requirements for establishing, implementing, operating, monitoring, reviewing, maintaining and improving a documented information security management system within the context of the organization’s overall business risks. It also provides a framework for implementing some of the principles given in the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for the Security of Information Systems and Networks using the PDCA (Plan-Do-Check-Act) model and a process approach.


ISO 28000 Internal Auditor

This 3-day course will provide you with the necessary information to audit supply-chain management and security. You will be provided with the background of ISO 28000 and be instructed on how to implement and audit system requirements, assess security and supply-chain risks, and develop a checklist. There will be practical application exercises to assist you in understanding the specification and the audit process. (Note: This is the 3-day ISO 28000 Internal Auditor course. Also available is the 4-day ISO 28000 Lead Auditor course.)


ISO 28000 Lead Auditor

This 4-day course will provide you with the information needed to audit supply-chain management and security aspects that are based on this specification. You will be provided with the background of ISO 28000 and be instructed on how to implement and audit system requirements, assess security and supply- chain risks, and develop a checklist. There will be practical application exercises to assist you in understanding the specification and the audit process.


ISO 9001 Internal Auditor

This course provides an introduction to eight quality management system principles and an explanation of how they relate to ISO 9001:2008. Learn auditing tools associated with the concept of nonconformity and handling nonconformities detected during an audit, the importance of managing the audit, the system approach to an audit, the concept of system mapping and its benefits in planning an effective internal audit program, and the characteristics of an audit report that bear on its quality. Course content includes the need for and importance of positive reporting of the audit results; the importance and nature of effective communication in the audit process; and the possible obstructions or barriers to effective communication, including psychological and cultural issues.


ISPS Code Security Officer

This 3-day course provides a regulatory overview of maritime security requirements applicable to ship, company, and port facility security officers. Its main objective is to present stateof- the-art information, techniques, and tools for the ongoing development and implementation of effective and compliant maritime security programs. For participants having a U.S. focus, requirements of the U.S. Coast Guard regulations are emphasized and supplemented with specific requirements of the ISPS Code where differences exist. The course content assumes that attendees have already submitted their maritime security assessments and are now in the implementation phase of their maritime security programs.

Job Safety Analysis

During this 2-day course, attendees learn the basics of the job safety analysis (JSA) process and ways to enhance the technique. In the basic approach, attendees learn how to identify job hazards and develop safe work practices for a task. With the enhanced approach, attendees also learn to quickly identify and address potential errors that may occur during the performance of the task using checklists of human factor considerations and guidewords. Attendees also discuss strategies for making the overall JSA process more efficient.


Layer of Protection Analysis

Layer of protection analysis (LOPA) is the newest methodology for hazard evaluation and risk assessment. On a sliding scale of sophistication and rigor, LOPA lies between the qualitative end of the scale (characterized by methods such as hazard and operability [HAZOP] analysis and what-if analysis) and the quantitative end (characterized by methods using fault trees and event trees). LOPA helps the analyst make consistent decisions on the adequacy of existing or proposed layers of protection against an accident scenario. The technique is ideally suited for companies striving to meet specific risk targets or to lower risk as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP). Background and prior training in qualitative hazard evaluation methodologies (such as previous attendance at Process Hazard Analysis Leader [110] training or the equivalent) are strongly recommended because LOPA builds on the skills and knowledge needed for hazard evaluations.
