Since DO-254 was released ten years ago, the knowledge of software hardware development processes, techniques, and strategies for safety-critical hardware has vastly changed and in some cases improved.  However, there is a large gap between understanding the real intent of DO-254 certification and the minimalist words in the Book. Just as commercial hardware development techniques have advanced, so has the world of aviation hardware development and certification. This Intermediate DO-254 training will provide important knowledge for attendees to rise to, understand, and apply those advancements and new hardware certification requirements for FAA, EASA and worldwide certification agencies.  This Intermediate DO-254 training is intended for persons with basic familiarity of DO-254, DO-178, or safety-critical standards. It can be combined to follow the preceding basic DO-254 course.  The developer/teacher is the principal founder of two of the world’s largest avionics consulting companies and the principal author of several of the world’s most popular publications on DO-254: Vance Hilderman has taught over 11,000 avionics engineers and managers worldwide, including FAA and EASA officials, and engineers from 95 of the world’s largest 100 aviation companies: more than all the competitor’s current trainers in the world, combined.

AFuzion’s training has been provided to over 23,000 aviation engineers from 1,000 companies in 30 countries; more than all other trainers in the world combined. Brief summary below; contact us for more free information.
