Training courses for RAM and safety engineers

Whether you have just started your professional career as a reliability engineer, safety engineer or instrument & automation engineer, or you have many years of experience, you might be interested in expanding your knowledge and skills to improve your Reliability, Availability, Maintainability and Safety analysis.

In 2022, TotalEnergies and the GRIF team opened new training courses for RAM and safety engineers to meet the growing demand from within and outside the company and to ensure the high quality of the courses provided by skilled trainers certified by TotalEnergies. Examples of training courses are shown in the table below, to receive a detailed program of training courses, please contact us via the contact form


For beginners and
for advanced GRIF users


On-site, On-line and 
Customised programs

grif_te_logov_rgb_2.pngAbout GRIF
GRIF (GRaphical Interface for reliability Forecasting) is a software suite of excellence that determines the fundamental indicators of reliability and dependability (Reliability - Availability - Performance - Safety). The software suite is composed of 12 modules combined in 3 packages that offer GRIF users various modelling techniques to solve the system under study (block diagrams, fault trees, Markov graphs, Petri nets, bowties...). The different modules allow to evaluate the reliability of safety systems (HIPS, SIL loop, …), the availability of production systems and to perform risk analysis for any fields of activity. The result of more than 40 years of Research and Development within TotalEnergies, GRIF features mature, high-performance calculation engines with modeling capabilities that will meet the requirements of all your reliability studies.
