Functional Safety according to ISO 26262

Training and certification

Are you looking for a comprehensive introduction to the development of safety critical functions in the automotive domain according to ISO 26262? Or are you striving to achieve the certification as Functional Safety Certified Automotive Engineer (FSCAE)? A combination would be perfect? Then you have come to the right place: We offer a hands-on training which optimally prepares you for the subsequent certification exam by our cooperation partner Dr. Graband & Partner GmbH. The certificate is valid for 3 years.

Apart from basic terms, different aspects of the standard, like ASIL, hazard analysis and risk assessment, ASIL decomposition, an integrated view of lifecycle safety, and concepts to avoid and master systematic and random errors, will be presented.

  • Hands-on Training
  • Group Work
  • Up to 12 Participants
  • 3 Days (Excluding Exam), training fee: 2.408,00 €
  • 3,5 Days (Including Certification), training fee: 3.210,00 €
  • Current trainings: 2019, Sept. 24-27 (Stuttgart)

From presentations and group work the participants gain insights into the concepts, which arise from the development of safety related systems and get to know the requirements for release of these systems. Besides this, requirements will be presented, which need to be fulfilled starting with the development of hardware and software until the production in order to receive a comprehensive proof of safety.

The course gives participants a good overview of the standard and enables them to understand the interrelationships of the safety-related development according to ISO 26262, to execute hazard analysis and to develop standard-compliant safety concepts as well as reflecting workflows regarding ISO 26262.
