Qualify as a Functional Safety Professional on our Renowned Certification Programme

Are you an engineer, tester, project lead, or quality representative involved in machinery safety? Improve your expertise and career with our Functional Safety Professional training course. This four-day course, offered both onsite and virtually, equips you with essential skills for work in the machinery and factory automation sectors. Functional Safety Professional is the main qualification from the functional safety certification program (FSCP).

Course Testimonial: "The Tutor has a wealth of knowledge in Functional Safety. He allowed for open discussions about real-life scenarios from attendees without cutting short the discussions. The course was well paced and ensured that all the content was sufficiently covered."

When and How to Participate

This course runs multiple times a year, providing flexibility to fit your schedule. You can choose to attend in person at our training facilities for a hands-on experience or opt for the virtual classroom setting if you prefer remote learning. Both formats are designed to be interactive and are led by experienced instructors from TÜV SÜD, a leader in safety certification since 1999.

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.

TÜV SÜD additionally offers the opportunity to deliver this training as a dedicated in-house course, delivered solely to your organisation to meet your needs and requirements. To receive a quote and find out more information, please contact us.
