Functional Safety Professional Training Course - ISO 13849 & IEC 62061

Face to face Training4 DaysIntermediateOnsite Seminar or Virtual Classroom

Functional Safety Professional is the main qualification from the FSCP and this particular stream of the program is aimed at the machinery and factory automation market.

TÜV SÜD originally developed the first functional safety certification program (formally CFSE - Certified Functional Safety Ex) in 1999. Since 1999 over 1000 professionals in the field of functional safety have been certified by TÜV SÜD.

The original certification program was meant for professionals in the process industry. Today functional safety is such a wide subject matter and applied in so many different industries that an expansion of the program has been undertaken. The program is now called the functional safety certification program (FSCP)

What is the difference between our functional safety engineer and functional safety professional courses?

This course focuses on manufacturing systems and devices for functional safety in the machinery sector, while our functional safety engineer training course is more geared towards machine builders and system integrators handling complete machine function integration.

If this course doesn't suit your needs, our functional safety engineer training course may be more suitable.
