LDRA announced the addition of training in the ISO 26262:2018 functional safety standard to its growing education portfolio. The new courses complement existing courses in the MISRA language subsets, consultancy services relating to the application of ISO 26262 and SAE J3061, and the LDRA tool suite for Automotive.
LDRA’s global offering of ISO 26262:2018 courses follows the success of similar courses in India. Still under development, the subject matter covered in these LDRA courses could range from a software-specific focus on Part 6 to the full scope of the standard. ISO 26262 recommends the use of the MISRA language subsets, and LDRA’s in-house MISRA expertise will complement that element of the courses. To finalize the details, LDRA is actively seeking feedback on the needs of the automotive safety- and security-critical development community.
LDRA’s long-time commitment to support the international development, adoption, and enforcement of rigorous software standards that ensure the safety and security of software-based electronics systems makes the company an ideal provider of such courses. LDRA’s support for industry safety standards includes representation on the committee responsible for ISO 26262:2018 with LDRA technical specialist Andrew Banks. LDRA is also represented on learned committees across the world including several DO-178C subgroups, BSI committees, and the secureC, MISRA C, and MISRA C++ language subset committees. Such experience informs the development of tools and the provision of consulting services at LDRA and, more recently, the company’s emergence and growing reputation as a training provider.
