DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training, Guidance and Auditing

DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training, Guidance and Auditing

DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training:

DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training, Guidance, and Auditing –  Hands-on (Online, Onsite, and Classroom Live)

Thorough and high-quality training should be the first step for any organization seeking to become proficient in the complex and nuanced world of airborne electronic certification.  Whether it is hardware or software, it is impossible to just read the DO-254 or DO-178C standards and understand what truly needs to be done. Thus, setting up a low-risk, compliant design flow requires learning from industry experts in terms of “how” to be compliant in the most efficient ways.

DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training covers the following topics:

  • DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training: System Aspects of Software Development
  • DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training: Software Development Processes
  • DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training: Software Verification Processes
  • DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training: Software Configuration Management (CM) Processes
  • DO-178C and DO-254 Compliance Training: Software Quality Assurance (QA) Processes
  • And more…

Thoroughly understanding these standards and developing best practice processes is essential to any company wanting to thrive in the aerospace market. This is where we can help. ENO offers flexible training for every situation. Some companies prefer to train people as a team. Others require bringing new team members up to speed as they join. Some prefer on-site or customized training, tuned to the company’s specific needs.
