  • Requirements
     

Learn about pre-requirements from management at company level and project management to achieve functional safety of electronics and its related software according to the state of the art.

The training course "Functional Safety" teaches basics of functional safe systems in the area of embedded systems. It covers items from terms and definitions to objectives of safety in relationship to the basic norm IEC 61508

Specifics of the related norm for automotive vehicles ISO 26262 are discussed in alternating fashion. The training also allows to apply the learned methods generically and according to other norms or standards.

YOUR ADVANTAGES:

Intensive jump start into the topic of Functional Safety

Refresh and intensify your knowledge

Training certificate for participants as to comply with the related standards

Effective preparation for potential exams

You can use the training documentation as a compendium

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