Fundamentals of Automotive Functional Safety Control Systems Using ISO 26262 - Gasoline

AFSB - Gasoline - Banner

Kick start your career by learning how to implement engine control strategies and safety processes using the ISO 26262 standard.

The Automotive Functional Safety bootcamp is six weeks of intense, hands-on training and coaching that will get you ready to face and implement the newest safety standards in the automotive industry. This program is designed for any engineer who is ready to take the next step to become a controls engineer and work in the connected transportation space. 

What Will You Learn

This course, based on the ISO 26262 standard for automotive Functional Safety, gives students a foundation for implementing embedded control systems in automotive and industrial applications.  Students learn and practice "soft skills" throughout the course for success on a modern engineering project team.

Students learn CAN and the SAE J1939 protocol for inter-ECU communications.  Using Simulink-based automatic code-generation software, students implement an electronic throttle controller (ETC), design engine minimum-speed and maximum-speed governors, and, finally, implement and calibrate an engine controller with engine speed control and CAN communications.

At the end of the course, students are able to explain ISO 26262 automotive functional safety concepts, using examples from the course's Electronic Throttle Control project; use CAN; and implement and calibrate embedded control software. This course gives students the skills, confidence, and experience to contribute as an engineering professional from the first day on the job.

Why ISO 26262?

The time is coming when every automotive supplier, from a wide range of industries, must follow the ISO 26262 Functional Safety standard. There will be a shortage of engineers in the workplace that has the skill set and knowledge base to implement, test, and verify the newest standard for vehicles.

The ISO 26262 Standard will be integrated with the LHPU Controls Course to include:

  • Basic concepts and overview of ISO 26262/Functional Safety
  • Introduction to ISO 26262 important workflow and deep understanding of work products
  • Safety Plan, Safety Case, Functional Safety Requirements (FSR), Technical Safety Requirements (TSR)
  • Understanding and developing HARA (Hazard Analysis and Risk Assessment) and ASIL (Automotive Safety Integration Level) determination
  • Understanding of real world fault detection and analysis for ETC system
  • Introduction to Validation/Testing of the safety requirements and work products such as Test Cases, Traceability Matrix etc
  • Introduction to Configuration and Change Management
  • Understanding of Tool Qualifications Process and importance of using robust/error free tools for requirements, design, development and testing

6 Week Full-Time Program

The full-time 6-week program is designed for anyone who is currently job searching, between jobs, or who has just finished a university degree. This program mimics a full-time, 9-5 work environment for participants to collaborate in teams to find effective solutions.

Students will perform Modules 1 – 6 over a 6-week,
full-time Monday – Friday schedule.


Nights & Weekends

The nights and weekends program is designed for engineers who are looking to develop their professional skills after hours; whether it’s after your 9-5 job, university studies, or busy schedule, this program will allow you to train in a new skill set while maintaining current responsibilities.

Students will perform Modules 1- 6 over an 8-week period of Wednesday evenings and Saturday/Sunday sessions.

Tuition & Fees


At LHPU we understand that higher education costs can be overwhelming. That is why we offer 2 flexible payment plans with features that ease the burden.  With the Pay and Learn Plan, pay 100% of the tuition upfront, before the start of the class, and receive a substantial discount off the list price. Alternatively, you can choose the Learn to Earn plan which allows you to make a small deposit to reserve your spot in one of our trainings, then pay a low $25 monthly payment upon completion of training.  Once you secure qualifying employment, you’ll make larger, yet still manageable, monthly, interest-free payments until your entire tuition is paid in full.  All payments made go toward your balance. It's that easy!
