Course Overview: 

This is a 4 day course delivered in partnership with Horiba-Mira.  This functional safety training course draws on direct practical experience of applying the standard with delegates benefiting from HORIBA MIRA’s collective experience of automotive functional safety and ISO 26262 which currently totals over 200 years gained in vehicle manufacturer and supplier environments.

“Learn about this important standard from the world’s leading international functional safety experts who are directly involved in preparing the standard.”

This course is newly updated for Edition 2 and provides the latest insights and updates on the standard from the world’s leading international functional safety experts who are directly involved in preparing the standard.  Since the publication of ISO 26262 in 2011, it has been rapidly accepted as the ‘state of art’ in developing safety-related electrical and electronic systems in road vehicles.  Edition 2 of the standard is now close to publication with scope extensions to the majority of road vehicles (trucks, buses and motorcycles are now all in scope) as well as additional guidance on application of the standard to the design of semiconductor devices.
