Introduction to Composites Fabrication and Assembly in Aerospace, Space, and Transportation
September 28, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This course introduces you to composites technologies that have applications beyond aerospace, including such markets as trucks, automobiles, and wind turbines. The instructor defines, illustrates, and describes the innovative manufacturing processes and technologies used to solve the “composite challenge” for aerospace and space vehicles.

Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (Product & Process) in Aerospace
September 28-29, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This interactive Failure Modes and Effects Analysis (FMEA) product and process seminar introduces you to the analytical process by which potential failure modes, failure effects and causes of failure are identified. The severity, occurrence and probability of detection of a failure mode are used to prioritize which failure modes are most critical.

ARP4754A and the Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems
September 28-29, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This seminar provides attendees with an in-depth presentation of the guidelines introduced in the revised recommended practice for aircraft and systems development as well as the critical concepts used in aircraft and systems development processes for certification. The aircraft/systems development process and its interactions with the safety, hardware development and software development processes will be discussed along with the incorporated changes, with special emphasis on new material and development concepts.

Understanding and Supporting Aircraft Accident Investigation and Reconstruction
September 28-29, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
For individuals called upon to serve as advisors or technical representatives to official aircraft accident investigation (AAI) teams, an understanding of aircraft accident investigation and reconstruction methodology and processes is critical to success in this supportive role. This course begins with the basic requirements for conducting proper accident investigations, including investigative philosophies and procedures.

New! Applying DO-254 for Avionics Hardware Development and Certification
September 28-29, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This course introduces the intent of the DO-254 standard for commercial avionics hardware development. The content covers many aspects of avionic hardware including: aircraft safety; systems; hardware planning, requirements, design, implementation and testing.

Fundamentals of GD&T 2009
September 28-29, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
Providing you have a basic understanding of mechanical drawings, this course teaches the terms, rules, symbols, and concepts of GD&T as prescribed in the ASME Y14.5-2009 Standard. Utilizing the expertise of world-renowned GD&T expert Alex Krulikowski, this course offers an in-depth explanation of geometric tolerancing symbols, their tolerance zones, applicable modifiers, common applications, and limitations.

Automated Systems for Aerospace and Space Applications
September 29-30, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm
This seminar introduces you to the critical components of automation necessary to be informed and knowledgeable about the acquisition, installation, and maintenance of automated systems for aerospace and space applications. The instructor guides you through the types, components, operation, application, cost benefits, laws, strengths, and limitations of automation.
