TÜV SÜD originally developed the first functional safety certification program (formally CFSE - Certified Functional Safety Expert) in 1999. Since 1999 over 1000 professionals in the field of functional safety have been certified by TÜV SÜD.
The original certification program was meant for professionals in the process industry. Today functional safety is such a wide spread subject matter and applied in so many different industries that an expansion of the program has been undertaken. The program is now called the functional safety certification program (FSCP).
The objective of this review course is to train the delegates in the fundamental principles of functional safety and to get their competency in the functional safety standards certified by TÜV SÜD.
Functional Safety Professional is the main qualification from the FSCP and this particular stream of the program is aimed at the machinery and factory automation market.
The Functional Safety Professional is an excellent qualification for engineers that need to deal with functional safety on a project basis. To achieve the qualification they need to meet the following criteria:
• 6 years experience in the applicable industry
• Education gives credits:
Bachelor degree deduct 2 years
Masters degree deduct 3 years
Ph.D. degree deduct 4 years
• Two references
• Attend the training course and successfully pass the associated exam
