The Functional Safety Training covers the principles of safety for control electronics and software and deals with state of the art techniques.

You learn about the requirements for accomplishing electronic system and software safety as defined by corporate and project management.

You get an overview of the measures to be taken in an overall system, e.g. crane including crane control, or IoT systems, so as to assure electronics safety.

You understand the measures to be implemented in state-of-the-art projects to accomplish safe electronic systems and software for your work products, as well as the procedures to develop these work products.

You know how to apply the related international standards, perform risk and hazard analysis, differentiate between safety-critical faults and avoid them.

You learn about fault monitoring and handling techniques.

Your advantages:

You get an efficient and compact entry into the overall safety context

You can refresh and intensify your knowledge

You get a training certificate complying with the related standards

You benefit from efficient exam preparation

You can use the training documentation as compendium.

The functional safety training addresses development engineers and managers as well as project managers and engineers dealing with safety-related topics.
