Personal Qualification Program Semiconductor Development

The more complex the technology the more experts for Functional Safety are needed. But the question is: who is an expert for Functional Safety? ISO 26262 does not answer this question. On the one hand it demands that only experts assess or manage Functional Safety but on the other it does not specify any of the prerequisites to be met by someone who may be considered an expert.

SGS-TÜV Saar as an accredited services provider now offers you the possibility to impart the technical knowledge for Functional Safety to personnel and to thereby qualify them. As an individual possessing this qualification, you justify or even increase your market value. As a business, you have the opportunity to have your staff qualified by an independent party and to secure this technical knowledge for the long term.


We qualify you or your staff for working with Functional Safety. SGS-TÜV Saar has developed a 2-step qualification program for this purpose. After successful completion of this program the SGS-TÜV Saar seal confirms to the attendee that he/she is an expert for Functional Safety.
