DO-178 and DO-254 Training

DO-178 and DO-254 training courses are designed by TONEX to cover a combination of DO-178C (software) and DO-254 (hardware) guidelines associated with civilian and commercial avionic systems.  We will teach you the precise applications of each of these guidelines, their components, and their requirements. We also introduce you to the best practices of DO-178 and DO-254 and effective executions of them. You will learn about the background, evolution, and transition of both DO-178C and DO-254, as well as the benefits of these recent guidelines compared to their previous versions.

 Through DO-178 and DO-254 training courses, you will obtain the necessary knowledge to initiate a project in regards to safety, methods, quality assurance, and configuration management.

Moreover, we will deliver adequate training on DO-178/254 compliant requirements, design, execution, and verification processes. We will discuss the common mistakes and teach you the approaches to avoid them.

All the DO-178 and DO-254 training courses are delivered in both theoretical and practical modules. The most majority of the trainings is dedicated to the practical activities including several labs, individual/group activities, and hands-on workshops.

Below are the courses that TONEX is offering on DO-178 and DO-254. Browse through our catalogue to find what fits you best:

 DO-178C Training | Workshop

This training workshop will teach you all the features of “software considerations in airborne systems and equipment certification”, which is the original guideline for civilian and commercial avionics software development. Such certification is adopted, applied, and supported by FAA and EASA, ED-12C.

You will comprehend the compliance characteristics of the DO-178C and understand the goals and expectations of DO-178C as the key tool for complying with the reliability specifications in order to get the FAA and EASA approval for the software used in civil aviation products.

Below are the major topics this course will cover:

  • System Considerations in Software Life Cycle Processes
  • Software Development Processes
  • Software Verification Processes
  • Software Configuration Management (CM) Processes
  • Software Quality Assurance (QA) Processes
  • Software Life Cycle Data
  • DO-330 Tool Qualification and DO-331 Modeling

 DO-254 Training | Design Assurance of Airborne Electronic Hardware

This training course will discuss the rationale, goals and standards you need to know in order to design hardware for design assurance of airborne electronic that meets with the requirements of DO-254. DO-254 is also known as ED-80 if defined based on Eurocae.

Do-254 Training teaches you the process features of airborne electronic hardware from the very beginning, which is conceptual design, through initial certification and then final safety verifications. You will learn about the DO-254 objectives that are required to meet by all the avionics parts producers based on EASA and FAA standards.

During the 2-day of training, we will give you an inclusive overview and discuss the applications of DO-254 as mandated by the existing FAA and EUROCAE ED-12C / ED-109A protocols.

You will learn the most recent guidelines of FAA and EASA relevant to the DO-254 in airborne systems. DO-254 training also covers the RTCA DO-254 levels of criticality. These five assurance levels are mandated for all the civil and commercial avionic electronic hardware. In addition to the civil avionic systems, we will give you the military applications of DO-254 in the avionic systems. The following are the major areas we will cover in this training course:

  • DO-254 Requirements Capture
  • DO-254 Conceptual Design
  • DO-254 Detailed Design
  • DO-254 Implementation and Production Transition
  • DO-254 Verification and Validation
