Professional Development Courses

Common Training for DPRV Personnel

Sept. 25, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

In the aerospace industry, supplier self-release is a process whereby a supplier has been provided the authority to act on behalf of a delegating organization to verify and release products without additional oversight from that delegating organization.  Currently, each of these delegating organizations manages and conducts a unique training program for individuals responsible for their self-release overcheck process.  For suppliers producing products for multiple delegating organizations, each must then manage the multiple training requirements.  The delegating organizations, recognizing there is commonality among the various training programs, have come together to consolidate their training into a single, common training standard. 

ARP4754A and the Guidelines for Development of Civil Aircraft and Systems 

Sept. 26, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

ARP4754A substantially revises the industry guidance for the development of aircraft and aircraft systems while taking into account the overall aircraft operating environment and functions. This development process includes validation of requirements and verification of the design implementation for certification and product assurance. ARP4754A provides the practices for showing compliance with regulations and serves to assist companies in developing and meeting its own internal standards though application of the described guidelines.

Introduction to Cyber Security for Commercial Aviation

Sept. 26, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Despite the advantages of electronic flight bags (EFB), passenger entertainment and email access during flights, and the ability to access aircraft repair manuals electronically, computer interconnectivity throughout aviation has opened the aviation sector to cyber-attacks that could impact flights, data, and safety. This two-day seminar is intended to introduce aviation professionals to the need to implement cyber security throughout commercial aviation including the supply chain. The course will provide a comprehensive overview of how the aviation industry is interconnected by computers and information technology along with managing those risks of cyber connectivity.

Introduction to Airframe Engineering: Design for Manufacturing, Assembly and Automation
Sept. 26-27, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

This introductory course on airframe engineering will cover the importance of design for manufacturing, assembly and automation in aerospace.  It will review what the key drivers are for a “good” design and some of the key points for manufacturing and assembly of aircraft components.    It will look at how an engineer can combine traditional technologies with new, cutting-edge technologies, to determine the best scenario for success.  In addition, this course will help the participant to identify the best level of automation to be considered for your specific manufacturing, assembly, and automation.

Systems Engineering for Prognostics and Health Management (PHM) Systems

Sept. 27, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m.

Most complex systems are moving toward a “smart” solution, with automated methods for identifying and diagnosing problems.  This course will explore how efficient systems can be designed in an effective manner to ensure that they meet performance requirements.  Because predictive maintenance is important to the aerospace industry, this course will address systems engineering (SE) and review prognostic health management (PHM) and explain how you can utilize them to obtain a better system.  Additionally, it will address requirements management; model-based design; and verification and validation.
