TUV-Nord's World Renowned Safety Program Scheduled for Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Functional safety engineering group, kVA, gears up for a new training and certification workshop offered this fall in Los Angeles, CA. The event is scheduled to take place September 8-11.

The event is designed for industrial OEMs and suppliers, specifically engineers working with safety-critical electronic systems and technologies.
