Automotive Certified Functional Safety Professional Training According to ISO 26262: 2018 Overview


Software and hardware in electronic systems have become key differentiating factors in today’s automobile design and development. With the rising role of electronics in automobiles, functional safety has increasingly become a critical aspect of the overall product design and development. The standard ISO 26262 “Road Vehicles-Functional Safety” is a crucial compliance requirement in the automotive value chain.

Our comprehensive course covers all requirements of ISO 26262:2018.  Exercises and examples are used within the presentation to show how the requirements and concepts of the standard are applied.
