Three-Day Course Overview

This three-day technical training course will give you in-depth exposure to industrial functional safety standards UL 991:Standard for Tests for Safety-Related Controls Employing Solid-State Devices, UL 1998: Standard for Software in Programmable Components, and IEC/UL 60730-1 Annex H: Standard for Automatic and Electrical Controls for Household and Similar Use.

This course teaches how to effectively use the standards in a product’s design phase, which is critical to its certification and acceptance. During the course, the concepts covered by the Standards will be applied to a cross-industry technology topic, highlighting the fact that different standards used in different industries use different metrics for assessing and testing functional safety.
