Functional Safety training on Automotive – System Design according to ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 (SIL certification)

TUV Rheinland India with cooperation of TÜV Rheinland Industrial Services GmbH, Germany

27/08/2012 - 31/08/2012 Pune

TUV Rheinland is pleased to announce Functional Safety training on Automotive – System Design according to ISO 26262 and IEC 61508 (SIL certification) in India with cooperation of TÜV Rheinland Industrial Services GmbH, Germany.

Increased complexity of the safety functions integrated into vehicles lead to the new Functional Safety Standard ISO 26262. Fulfilling the standard is the only way to avoid problems in case of product liability and reliability due to incidents in the field. Most OEMs are now requiring their suppliers to apply and conform to ISO 26262. For Modules involved in Safety goals compliance with ISO 26262 is required.Tier 1 Suppliers are changing their internal development rules in order to perform developments according to ISO 26262 as soon as their component is part of a Safety goal.


This vocational qualification training of the TÜV Functional Safety Program enables engineers to deepen their knowledge by achieving a worldwide acknowledged know-how, attain practical experience and implement the requirements in accordance with international functional safety standards ISO/DIS 26262 and IEC 61508.

Engineers who have been working in the field of functional safety for many years have the opportunity to obtain an official verification and testimonial of their expertise. By passing a final exam successfully they will receive a TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Engineer certificate.

This certificate, which is acknowledged worldwide, states that specific knowledge within the field of "Automotive" has been achieved.
