Online training course

This is a new training course that we offer as an on-line course jointly between Brightskies and Doymus on ISO 26262. We usually combine it with the Gap Analysis service to obtain information about the processes, methods and tools that we have to acquire or improve to approach certifiable projects under ISO 26262.

The course is distributed in 4 sessions of 5 hours, combining a theoretical part and another part with a case study, focused on the software part, where different tools and examples of requirements, design, static analysis and testing are shown.

The course content covers the concept phase (Part 3), the systems phase (Part 4), the hardware phase (Part 5) and the software phase (Part 6). The support processes (Part 8) are presented within the remaining parts of the course.

The theoretical part is taught in English while the case study is taught in Spanish once the theoretical part is completed.
