Method Functional Safety

An Introduction to Functional Safety Training Course

Our =MethodIntroduction to Functional Safety” training course is run as a public live online course, alternatively it can be delivered as a closed “in-house” classroom course at your site. Closed “in-house” courses can be entirely customised to your needs. We decide together what you need from the training and then design something that is just right for you and your team.

You may want to turn the course in to a marketing and sales activity and invite your customers to the training too. We would incorporate suitable sales messages in to the material.

The course is typically 4-hours long and covers the essential elements of the functional safety lifecycle and functional safety management.


The Course is delivered in-house only. It normally takes 4-hour but can be extended or shortened to meet your needs.
