Functional Safety Management (ISO 26262) for Hardware

Omnex GermanyOmnex FranceOmnex ItalyOmnex SpainUnited KingdomOmnex Netherlands


This four-day course will give the participant the information necessary to implement the ISO 26262 Functional Safety Management System standard as a Functional Safety Hardware Engineer. This standard is an adaptation of the Functional Safety standard IEC 61508 for the specifics of automotive electric/electronic systems. It is to be applied to Safety Related Systems that include electric/electronic systems that are installed in production passenger vehicles.

Please note, for public training offerings, this class will run Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. If you would like, you may attend the Wednesday session at a discounted rate. The Wednesday session is primarily targeted at Systems Engineers and will cover Part 4 – System Level Development in greater detail.



This course is E/E & HW Project Managers, HW Developers, Hardware Design Engineers and Functional Safety Engineers.


Attendees should have a working knowledge of their organization’s New Product Development Process.



Each participant will receive a seminar manual including case studies.
