DO-178C Advanced Training C1740

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

This course is offered in China only and presented in Mandarin Chinese. The course materials are bilingual (English and Chinese).

Participants deepen the understanding of the standard and build on how software engineers, inspectors, and DERs can comply with the standard's objectives. Practitioners engage with the implications and rationales of DO-178C in order to effectively tackle real worked applications. Topics include the concept of certification credits, acceptable levels of safety of airborne software, as well as traceability, change impact analysis and control, requirement and structure coverage, MC/DC and its Masking, Data and Control Coupling. This course also discusses the use of DO-178C core documents in combination with DO-330, DO-331, DO-332, and DO-333.

  • Analyze software testing requirements coverage
  • Analyze software testing structure coverage (statement coverage and decision coverage)
  • Perform unique-cause MC/DC and Masking MC/DC, meet the objective with least cost
  • Analyze data coupling and control coupling
  • Employ decent techniques such as Tool Qualification, Model Based Development and Verification, Formal Method, Object-Oriented in order to better meet DO-178C objectives
  • Utilize DO-178C core document in combination with DO-330, DO-331, DO-332, DO-333

Who Should Attend

  • Airborne software engineers
  • Aviation Certification engineers;
  • Supplier Managers
  • Response for software development/verification /CM/QA in aviation system or equipments
  • Response for airborne system or software certification related work
  • Response for supplier management, especially software suppliers
  • EE


It is recommended that participants have bachelor degree in a technical area. Since the course is positioned as DO-178C Advanced Training, it would be preferable that the participants have already attended the DO-178C Basic Training or have already acquired the basic knowledge of software airworthiness and DO-178C.

You must complete all course contact hours and successfully pass the learning assessment to obtain CEUs.

CTO of Shanghai Aviation Technologies Co., Ltd. 

Mr. Yunming WANG obtained his bachelor's degree from Fudan University in Mathematics Department, his Master's degree from Fudan University in Computer Science Department, his PhD from INRIA in Computer Science Department. 

During his research and working experience in France, Mr. WANG has been deeply involved in software development, software certification and tool qualification.  He has accumulated rich experience in software implementation and certification under the circumstance of airworthiness requirements based on DO-178C standard and its supplements. As a member of SC-205/WG-71, the editorial committee of DO-178C standard series, Mr. WANG participates in the formulation of DO-178C, DO-330, DO-331, DO-332, DO-333, DO-278A, DO-248C and other standards.

Since Mr. WANG returned to China, He has been providing a wide spectrum of high-level training and consulting services for domestic enterprises and institutions by introducing advanced software development technologies, promoting normative software development processes, interpreting industry standards of safety-critical software development and assisting in projects of standard application and certification. He has been offering basic training, advanced training, practical training and DER training of airworthiness standards for years.

Mr. WANG published dozens of technical papers both in China and abroad. In his book " Best Practice for Airborne Software Production Workflow”, he puts forward a mathematical model of lifecycle and a complete set of best practice which is rigorous, standardized and easy to conduct. In addition, he leads a team and develops a software lifecycle integrated development environment to implement his ideas and best practices in the book. It has been regarded as very innovative work and has won high praise from the industry.
