TÜV Rheinland is holding a Functional Safety Training Program, an opportunity for professionals in functional-safety-product development to deepen their knowledge and experience within the area of functional safety, as described in IEC 61508.
The program is for engineers and those developing programmable electronic safety systems and products based on the IEC 61508 standard. The training imparts basic knowledge so developers can effectively implement safety related requirements. Attendees will also learn about important new aspects of the IEC 61508 edition 2.
The program includes three days of training. Participants can take an optional exam on the fourth day to obtain an official verification of their expertise. After passing a final exam, attendees receive a TÜV Rheinland Functional Safety Engineer certificate which is acknowledged worldwide, stating that the student has gained specific knowledge within the field of Hardware/Software Design according to IEC 61508.
The four-day program is slated for June 18 to 21 at TÜV Rheinland’s Chicago office, 2100 Golf Road, in Rolling Meadows, Ill. The $2,950 cost includes the exam. A $2,650 charge omits the exam.
