The ISO 26262 Functional Safety Training and Certification Program (FSCP) is a personal certification program. The program trains professionals to have complete understanding and updated technical knowledge of the safety related systems that the standard accounts for. It aims at building a basic understanding about safety-related functions with respect to electrical and electronic systems to minimise risks and failure in the automotive sector. It applies from the concept phase, design phase, product development, commissioning to decommissioning phase. So, basically it covers the complete lifecycle of the automotive product. Implementing ISO 26262 in the initial phase, helps to ensure that no such risks surface at a later stage of production, when it becomes expensive to fix the problem.

Any professional who is interested in understanding the functional safety-related electrical and electronic systems consisting of hardware and software components in automotive vehicles, working or willing to make a career in the automotive industry sector must attend the program. The course can be taken up to have a clear understanding and practical experience of how safety- related systems must be operated and controlled to mitigate risks and avoid errors. They may include managers, safety managers, software developers, hardware developers, project leaders, quality representatives, test engineers and all who are involved in ISO 26262 projects and lifecycle primarily focusing on the development of programmable electronic safety systems and aiming to implement their developments on the basis of the recognised international standard ISO 26262 2nd Edition.

Frequently Asked Questions regarding the main topic of the training:
What is the significance of ISO 26262 in a Functional Safety Training Program?

ISO 26262 functional safety is an international standard that regulates functional safety in electrical and electronic systems consisting of hardware and software components of road vehicles. Compliance to ISO 26262 is crucial for the OEMs, automotive suppliers to ensure human safety and automotive development.

What does the ISO 26262 Functional Safety Standard specify?

ISO 26262 functional safety standard specifies a framework for safety- related systems to be applied to assist the development of electrical and electronic systems that are installed in road vehicles, excluding mopeds. ISO 26262 sets an outline for measuring risk and determine risk classes known as ASILs (Automotive Safety Integrity Levels, or ASILs) and aims to reduce possible hazards in automotive systems. It defines the safety lifecycle from the concept phase until the decommissioning of the automotive product or system. It tracks and measures risks to ensure that an acceptable level of safety is achieved in the automotive product.

Why is it important for an individual to have Functional Safety Training in ISO 26262?

ISO 26262 Functional Safety Training and Certification Program trains individuals to have the technical knowledge and practical experience in understanding safety-related systems in road vehicles. When the individual has complete knowledge of the safety related systems, they can take more informed steps on the ground and avoid mishaps and risks. This would ensure steps to be taken at the initial stages and avoid any undue limitations at later stages that would lead to saving both time and money. It would also ensure employee, company and customer satisfaction to the highest levels.

Frequently Asked Questions regarding the examination:

What is a proctored exam?
A proctored exam is an assessment supervised by a proctor or test monitor.

What is an online proctored exam?
An online proctored exam is a timed assessment via an online platform in which the candidates’ activity, webcam video, and audio are monitored. In our case, there is a human proctor that supervises the exam taking place via a webcam to ensure the authenticity of the test taker and prevents them from cheating.

What is a proctor?
A proctor is simply an invigilator whose job is to overlook test takers during examinations for the main purpose of ensuring that they don’t cheat. This is done with the help of a real-time test proctor present online during the duration of the assessment via webcam surveillance.

What is proctoring?
Also known as invigilation, proctoring is the act of supervising candidates during an examination. The purpose of this is to ensure that the exam process is fair and equal for all candidates. When the stakes are high, it’s crucial to guard against cheating, impersonating a candidate, or copying questions to share with others.

How do proctored online exams work?
Online proctored exams are timed exams that are taken online while the proctor monitors the test takers’ computer browser activity, webcam video, and audio during the exam.
But before the test begins, the candidate is required to fill in their details like name, date of birth, age, and gender to ensure their authenticity. The test taker is expected to show ID proof for facial recognition. In the same step, the microphone and webcam are tested to avoid any errors during the assessment.
Once the ID verification has taken place, checks are conducted on the candidates’ exam environments to prevent any cheating from taking place.
The rules of the online proctored exam are explained to the candidates. This typically includes things like no speaking, referring to notes, using other software on a computer or copying down exam content to share with others. Once that is done, then the real assessment can begin.
During the assessment, the candidates are monitored to ensure that they follow the rules.
Each of these steps is designed to ensure that the assessment is completely fair and prevent any test fraud from taking place.
The proctor will authenticate students’ IDs, keep track of time, and watch students to make sure that they are following test guidelines and instructions.
