CRSE - Certified Robot Safety Expert

Order number 1T000128 | Expert


CRSE - The Certified Robot Safety Expert course provides you with the expertise to develop and implement safe control systems for integrating robot applications. CRSE is certified by TÜV NORD and is an internationally recognised qualification. As part of continuing training, the course teaches the current requirements from the relevant directives and standards. The course looks at the safety of stationary and mobile robots. Automated guided vehicles and collaborating robots are also examined. You’ll learn the requirements that must be met when commissioning, operating, accessing, maintaining and setting up a variety of robot systems. The two-day training course focuses in particular on the complex robot lifecycle. This includes legislation, standards and technical reports. We will show you how to develop and verify safeguarding measures in work areas that contain robots.

When you pass your exam you will receive an independent certificate issued by TÜV NORD as evidence of your qualification. This certificate is recognised worldwide and entitles you to use the designation "CRSE - Certified Robot Safety Expert".
