AFuzion Launches New Intermediate DO-254 Training Course for Avionics Hardware Development & Certification

AFuzion today launched its new “Intermediate DO-254 Training” course. Already AFuzion’s Basic DO-254 Training course has been delivered to 4, 350 avionics hardware engineers worldwide. The new AFuzion D0-254 Trainng course is for engineers with familiary of DO-178C or basic DO-254 and and needing more hands-on DO-254 class training experience. AFuzion’s new Intermedaite DO-254 Training course is for experienced hardware engineers already having knowledge of safety-critical processes, ISO 26262, IEC-61508, DO-178, DO-178B, or CMMI. Less experienced engineers should first review basic avionics hardware development and certification protocols by reading books or papers (available free from AFuzion) prior to attending AFuzion’s Advanced DO-178C training class. If desired, less-experienced attendees or the general public can download free DO-254 tutorial training materials at the Afuzion website

NEW YORK, Jan. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — AFuzion’s new “Intermediate DO-254 Training Course” is now available to private companies worldwide. AFuzion’s DO-254 Basic Training has been provided to 4,350 avionics hardware engineers from 300+ aerospace companies worldwide on five continents. Now, AFuzion’s best-in-class avionics development and certification training is available to more advanced hardware developers or prior AFuzion Basic DO-254 Training courses. Click Here for Details on AFuzion’s Intermediate DO-254 Training course.

For engineers with less experience needing to do a little advanced reading on avionics hardware development and certification for added DO-254 Information, AFuzion’s DO-254 Introduction free whitepaper is available here:

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.
