ISO 13849 - Functional Safety for the Machinery Sector

Instructor-led Training3 DaysBeginner

Today’s industry needs cross-disciplinary knowledge to achieve the maximum quality, reliability and safety. Constantly changing functions in mobile and stationary systems require companies to reach high levels of expertise, particularly with regard to safety, in order to master this complexity. Safety regulations insist that persons with responsibilities in these environments must possess adequate specialist knowledge. TÜV SÜD possesses the needed expertise to train your employees in all aspects of safety of machinery. Our training program involves courses without certification, as well as with certification for customers who would like to demonstrate their qualification externally. The following day after the course you can participate the exam acc. the Functional Safety Certification Program in order to be qualified as Functional Safety Engineer.
