FSCP IS A PERSONNEL CERTIFICATION PROGRAMME THAT DEMONSTRATES AN INDIVIDUAL’S PROFICIENCY IN THE ISO 61508 FUNCTIONAL SAFETY STANDARD

TÜV SÜD has decades of experience in functional safety in the automotive industry and offers a special FSCP training program. Online Training.

WHAT IS FSCP?

The Functional Safety Certification Programme (FSCP) is a personnel certification programme that demonstrates an individual’s proficiency in the IEC 61508 functional safety standard. After successful completion of the FSCP programme the expert receives a FSCP certification which provides evidence of their qualification, knowledge and experience in the automotive industry.

WHY IS THE FSCP ACCORDING TO ISO 61508 IMPORTANT?

Gaining an FSCP ISO 61508 certification provides functional safety experts and their companies with multiple benefits:

  • Ensure that you meet the demands of the business and the ISO 61508 standard
  • Demonstrate your knowledge of functional safety with a widely recognised certification and become part of the official TÜV SÜD functional safety expert listing
  • Enhance your career as a functional safety engineer, professional or expert
  • Maintain a competitive advantage by building internal competencies to tackle functional safety projects effectively and efficiently

  • Participants

    Managers, safety managers, software developers, hardware developers, project leaders, quality representatives, test engineers and all who are involved in IEC 61508 projects and lifecycle primarily focusing on the development of programmable electronic safety systems and aiming to implement their developments on the basis of the recognized international standard IEC 61508.

  • Content

    MODULE 1: IEC 61508 TRAINING - INTRODUCTION, DEFINITION OF FUNCTIONAL SAFETY MANAGEMENT, SYSTEM ANALYSIS

    Part 1 of IEC 61508 requires implementation of a FSM (Functional Safety Management) system to provide an organisational framework for the development of safety-relevant electronic systems. After an introduction to Functional Safety and general overview of the sector, the program presents the tasks and methods involved in safety management together with conceptual aspects. The main design criteria of standards and approaches for designing a functional concept and the associated system analysis are explained. The day concludes with an introduction to the requirements which must be fulfilled by Requirements Engineering.

    The content of Day 1 is aimed at management executives, project managers, safety and QM managers and all staff involved in functional safety projects.

    MODULE 2: IEC 61508 TRAINING - DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF SAFETY-RELEVANT HARDWARE

    Module 2 explains how mathematical and analytical methods can be applied to verify hardware designs fulfilling the requirements of IEC 61508 Part 2. A case study is used as the basis for a detailed explanation of the systematic approach to be used in analysis and the method of determining the necessary probabilistic safety parameters.

    The content of Day 2 is aimed particularly at responsible operators and users in the field of hardware and software development, heads of functional safety projects and safety managers.

    MODULE 3: IEC 61508 TRAINING - DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF SAFETY-RELEVANT SOFTWARE

    Part 3 of IEC 61508 presents methods, procedures, documentation and the software safety life cycle, which must all be taken into consideration in developing safety-relevant software. Practical examples are used to introduce the principles underlying the standard and the procedures for dealing with the requirements of this part of the standard.

    The content of Day 3 is aimed particularly at users and responsible operators in software and hardware development, heads of functional safety projects and safety managers.
