The automotive industry faces a paradigm shift. Consumer expectations for connectivity, interoperability, transparency and safety, paired with rapid advancements in electric and autonomous vehicles, require manufacturers to innovate rapidly, stay aware of regulatory requirements and safety standards and build trust in their brand. Knowledge of functional safety, autonomy safety, artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and vehicle homologation processes have become critical to compete in the industry. Both the opportunities and challenges are immense.
UL Solutions offers a broad portfolio of training programs to help automotive personnel gain key knowledge and skills for success.
UL Certified Functional Safety Professional Training in Automotive — ISO 26262
With the rising role of electronics in automobiles, functional safety has increasingly become a critical aspect of overall product design and development. ISO 26262, Road Vehicles-Functional Safety, is a crucial compliance requirement in the automotive value chain. Our comprehensive four-day course covers all requirements of ISO 26262:2018.
UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional Training in ISO 21448:2022
This 2.5-day course establishes guiding principles and best practices for autonomous vehicle safety as described in the ISO 21448:2022 released standard. The relevant certification is for autonomous and semi-autonomous (or automated driver assist) systems, Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) autonomy Levels 1-5.
UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional Training in UL 4600
This 2.5-day course primarily focuses on UL 4600, the Standard for Safety for the Evaluation of Autonomous Products. Discussion topics include safety principles, tools, techniques, and lifecycle processes for building and evaluating the safety of fully autonomous vehicles. Participants will learn how to build a safety framework for autonomous products starting with autonomous vehicles (AVs), autonomous robotics, off-road and fleet vehicles, as well as other areas where AV safety is paramount.
UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional Training in Machine Learning
Today’s automotive original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and suppliers must develop operational and tactical functions — through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) — required to operate a vehicle in on-road traffic that performs driving maneuvers better than an experienced driver. This two-day training on ML for automotive safety provides guidance for the safe development and incorporation of ML components into modern safety frameworks used for automotive, including functional Safety (FuSa) and Safety of the Intended Function (SOTIF). The training includes reference information for new autonomy safety standards, including:
- UL 4600, the Standard for the Evaluation of Autonomous Products
- ISO/TR 4804:2020, Safety and Cybersecurity for Automated Driving Systems — Design, Verification and Validation
- ISO/IEC DTR 5469, Artificial Intelligence — Functional Safety and AI Systems
- ISO/AWI PAS 8800, Road Vehicles — Safety and Artificial Intelligence
- ISO/IEC TR 24029-1:2021, Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Assessment of the Robustness of Neural Networks — Part 1: Overview
- ISO/IEC CD 24029-2, Artificial Intelligence (AI) – Assessment of the Robustness of Neural Networks – Part 2: Methodology for the Use of Formal Methods.
UL Certified Artificial Intelligence Professional Training — Foundations
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) have established key roles in the automotive industry. In the future, AI will play an even greater role. To keep pace, companies need to understand the basics of AI and ML. This two-day training covers the relevant methods and practices around ML while focusing on artificial neural networks, the basis for deep learning.
UL Automotive Homologation Training
This three-day course offers participants the opportunity to gain a holistic view of the complex processes, regulatory resources and testing requirements for homologation. This course is designed for project-level engineers and executives who need to understand the requirements of specific markets better. While geared more toward vehicle manufacturers, suppliers will also benefit from the component- and system-level certification requirements covered in the course.
intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor (Automotive SPICE® v3.1)
This five-day course prepares participants to take the exam for qualification as an intacs™ Certified Provisional Assessor (Automotive SPICE® v3.1). The training covers the Automotive SPICE® v3.1 process assessment model, which is generally used for assessments in the automotive industry.
UL Certified Cybersecurity Professional Training in Automotive — ISO/SAE 21434
Electronics system software and hardware are key differentiating factors in today’s automobile design and development, making cybersecurity integral to the overall product design and development. This three-day comprehensive course offers participants the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the security processes, related standards, and their impact on the automotive industry from an expert at UL Solutions.
UL Certified Functional Safety Professional Training in UL 991/1998, IEC/UL 60730-1 ANX H
This three-day technical training course offers participants 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 participants how to effectively use the standards in a product’s design phase, which is critical to its certification and acceptance.
