Marketing Text Ein Kompetenzprofil, Kursunterlagen, eine Online Schulung und europaweite Prüfungen werden für den neuen Beruf eines ECQA Zertifizierten Funktionalen Sicherheitsmanagers entwickelt.
Summary The functional safety of modern products containing embedded systems has become a first priority in several industrial sectors. The IEC61508 group of standards require companies to have in place "Functional Safety Management". The objective of SafEUr is to create a European-wide accredited training and certification program for Functional Safety Managers, based on a skill card which is compliant to the European Qualification Framework. It will deliver modern e-Learning based training, that is based on practical case studies and best industry practices. This training will be complemented by a world-wide unique web-based integration platform for industry and academia in the domain of Embedded Systems. SafEUr trainers and trainees will be trained and certified all over Europe, assuring a major impact and sustainability of the program. High-impact international dissemination channels to industry and academia will be deployed in order to involve and inform external partners.
The partners specifically target the follwing objectives:
1.) Contrary to the few trainings in Functional Safety competencies that exist today, the training that they wish to have should not be limited to delivering knowledge about standards in the field, but much rather be based on practical case studies, experience, best practices, and sensitization for tendencies and upcoming tools and methods (i.e;, research and pre-development).
2) As described in the IEC61508 family of standards, mastering Functional Safety is an organisation-wide topic, and thus a management issue. Thus, they see a key importance in agreeing on competences required for Functional Safety Managers rather than Engineers.

This research and industry partnership develops a functional safety manager concept which
Although the IEC61508 group of standards require companies to have in place "Functional Safety Management", there are absolutely no training programs available, which
a) is accredited European-wide,
b) has an associated European-level certification,
c) also teaches management competences in Functional Safety,
d) is not high-level, but with guidance, practical detail, best practices, and case studies,
e) and has strong links to cutting-edge knowledge and tendencies in the field, thus allowing to keep certified managers pace with the unequalled rapid development of the embedded systems domain.
The partnership and task forces involved also have members in the German Automotive safety engineering working party of the German Automotive association assuring impact on companies addressing millions of employees in the Eurpopean market.
