Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) Training

Risk Management Fault Tree Analysis TrainingFAULT TREE ANALYSIS TRAINING OVERVIEW:

The PathWise Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) training course uses concepts and steps that align with ISO 14971 and ICH Q9 guidance related to Quality Risk Management. The Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) is a tool used in risk based systems to identify any pertinent factors that contributed to an undesired event.  The tool is an effective tool in order to identify potential causes or pathways to the event or failure.


Attendees of this course learn to:

  • Explain how a Fault Tree Analysis can fit within a Risk Management System
  • Create a Fault Tree Analysis to include failure identification, analysis, and event probabilities

Integrated into the course is the completion of an actual Fault Tree Analysis to reinforce the concepts being presented to the class participants.

These course steps include:

  1. Top event (failure/outcome) defined
  2. Identify possible immediate causes or failure modes leading to top event
  3. Analyze each cause/fault mode to identify how the failure was caused
  4. Complete tree
  5. Estimate probability of the head event
  6. Determine if further actions are necessary


  • Identify potential causes of failure
  • Analyze a failure that has already occurred
  • Analyze systems with many interfaces and interactions



The pictorial representation leads to an easy understanding of the system behavior, and the factors included, which can help identify the potential cause of event failure.

Fault Tree Analysis is a one-day course appropriate for individuals who are regularly called upon to assess risk. Examples include research and design engineers, quality assurance, and regulatory and compliance personnel.

Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) Training is one day of Instructor Led classroom training.
