2/8/2018: Safety Engineering & Analysis Center Continuing Education & Training

The Safety Engineering & Analysis Center (SEAC) is debuting two new training classes in 2018; Reliability Engineering & Risk Management for Safety Engineering.

Reliability Engineering is designed for professionals wanting to advance their understanding and knowledge in reliability engineering tools and techniques and their application in technical assessments and special studies. This course is taught by Dr. Fayssal Safie who recently retired as the NASA Technical Fellow for Reliability & Maintainability Engineering.

Risk Management for Safety Engineering provides an overview of the underlying processes used to manage risks and demonstrates the common elements that can be applied to any sector of our economy. This course is taught by Tom Pfitzer & Tom Delong who combined have over 75 years of experience as safety professionals and risk management practices.
