UL Certified Autonomy Safety Professional Training in UL 4600

Categories Safety Relevant Development , Automotive Functional Safety Professional

General Information
2 Days

This 2.5-day training course is heavily focused on UL 4600, the Standard for Safety for the Evaluation of Autonomous Products. Discussion topics include safety principles, tools, techniques, and life cycle processes for building and evaluating the safety of fully autonomous vehicles.

Throughout the course, 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.

Upon successful completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • understand safety case frameworks
  • gain familiarity with AV development considerations for safety
  • develop an understanding for effective techniques to overcome common pitfalls

• Introduction to AVs and the associated technology• Introduction to AV safety frameworks

  • The UL 4600 approach for autonomous vehicle safety
  • UL 4600 scope and definitions
  • Why safety is critical to success
  • Risk assessment
  • Interaction with humans and road users
  • Autonomy functions and support
  • Software and system engineering processes
  • Dependability
  • Data and networking
  • Verification, validation and test
  • Tool qualification, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and legacy components
  • Life cycle concerns
  • Maintenance
  • Metrics and safety performance indicators (SPIs)
  • Safety assessment
  • Other relevant AV safety standards
  • Wrap-up and discussion topics
Target audience
  • AV hardware and software developers
  • Simulation engineers working with advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and AV verification
  • Test and validation engineers
  • Project and product leaders
  • Compliance engineers

Participants who complete all 2.5-days of training are eligible to take a two-hour certification exam in the afternoon of the third day.

Those who pass the exam are individually certified as a UL-Certified Autonomy Safety Professional (UL-CASP) in UL 4600. Upon the successful completion of the UL-CASP exam, participants will receive a certificate and badge that they can use to demonstrate their competence in the UL 4600 AV Safety Standard.

The certification is good for three years, after which individuals may recertify.
