MISRA-C Training, MISRA C:2012 Training

MISRA-C Training is designed for  C programmers, engineers and managers working on safety-critical applications for automotive, medical, military, aerospace, avionics,  or other life-critical applications. MISRA-C training covers the MISRA C:2012 guidelines to ensure safe coding practices can be achieved efficiently.  For example in avionics DO-178B/C compliance, developers have to practice coding techniques to be an integrated part of the requirements traceability for assurance and safety and mitigate liability and risk.

Motor Industry Software Reliability Association (MISRA) focuses on safety covering vulnerable to C’s limitations and ways to make C safer.

Learn about MISRA C as set of guidelines for software development promoting C programming language in safety-critical embedded applications with adoption and enforcement of coding standards within multiple domains. MISRA-C was originally was released in 1998 (MISRA C:1998)/C90, and the 2004 version (MISRA-C:2004) was designed to include a host of extensions and improvements to the original version.

Who Should Attend

  • Engineering Manager
  • Project Managers

  • and anyone else need to learn the details about MISRA compliance

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of MISRA-C training, the attendees are able to:

  • Improve understanding of critical systems requirements using C language
  • Become familiar with MISRA C guidelines for the use of the C language in critical systems
  • Understand weaknesses and strength of C language applied to critical safety situations
  • Lean ways to use C safely in critical systems
  • Learn techniques and procedures to produce MISRA C compliant code
  • Apply best practices in your C development using MISRA-C guidelines
  • Understand improvements to reduce the cost and complexity of intended compliance
  • Learn about changes and new extensions in MISRA C:2012
  • Learn interpret the output of MIRS C;2012 checking tools
