WIRRAL, U.K., 9 Oct. 2013. LDRA Certification Services (LCS), in response to recent changes and the criticality of the DO-178C and DO-254 standards to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification authorities, has created a seminar to explain recent changes and to provide in-depth instruction and course documentation.

LDRA, a provider of standards compliance, automated software verification, source code analysis, and test tools, is offering a two-day seminar on DO-178C and DO-254A taught by DO-178C Committee Members and Level A FAA DERs Todd White and Steve Morton.

“In our 40 years of working side-by-side with avionics developers, LDRA has helped more than 200 DO-178 projects achieve certification, the majority of these meeting the most stringent, Level A, requirements,” confirms LDRA Operations Director Ian Hennell. “Such hands-on experience, coupled with committee level participation in the standards bodies, has enabled LDRA to develop superior training, service support, and tools to guide development teams in achieving certification in the safest, most efficient way.”

The DO-178C and DO-254 guidance are globally recognized and applied by companies seeking to develop high-quality, safety-critical airborne software and complex electronic hardware and by those seeking to regulate and certify such devices. The LCS Level A FAA DER instructors will also explain the DO-178C/DO-254 relationships to the aircraft standard, ARP-4754A, and the system safety standard, ARP-4751, giving attendees a comprehensive understanding of compliant systems.

The class, focused on the invocation of DO-178C and the new FAA and EASA guidance that has formed the foundation of the proposed DO-254A standard, will explain the DO-178C processes and show how to apply them across the development life cycle.
Avionics engineers, delivery managers, product assurance managers, avionics hardware design engineers, hardware engineers/managers, project leaders and managers, engineering leads, quality assurance, and certification consultants will learn:

• How to save time, reduce costs and maximize resources in DO-178C and DO-254 projects
• How to apply DO-178C and its relation to DO-254
• To consider the many new dimensions and dependencies among DO-178C supplements
• How to apply AC 20-115C guidance to new software and legacy systems.

In addition, seminar attendees will receive exclusive hard copies of training information, white papers, and technical notes and will experience elite training and participate in technical discussions with LCS.

• November 12-13, 2013 – Melbourne, FL
