Course Overview

RTCA has teamed with The MITRE Aviation Institute to offer high quality and relevant training for the aviation industry in understanding the requirements and parameters for avionics software development necessary to obtain FAA certification. MITRE and RTCA are using their collective experience and expertise to provide training on the new standards and recommended practices contained in the new DO-178C, Software Considerations in Airborne Systems and Equipment Certification.

In addition to the comprehensive course manual developed by the experts at the MITRE Aviation Institute, each training course attendee receives the new standards developed over a six-year period by RTCA Special Committee 205.

The course will provide a thorough understanding of the requirements and applicability of DO-178C; the fundamental techniques of software development considerations in airborne systems and equipment certification; and an introduction and overview of Software Tool Qualification Considerations, Formal Methods Supplement To DO-178C, Model-Based Development and Verification Supplement To DO-178C, Object Oriented Technology and Related Techniques Supplement To DO-178C.
