DO-178C Practical Training C1741

Topics: Quality, Safety & Maintenance

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

RTCA DO-178C  is the globally-accepted standard for civil aviation software development and certification. Compliance with the objectives of DO-178C is the primary means for meeting airworthiness requirements and obtaining approval of airborne software in TC/STC/TSO, etc.

Even after study of the DO-178C, many people lack experience producing DO-178C compliant airborne software in real applications. This three-day practical training will provide participants with an in-depth exercise in producing compliant DO-178C software.  The certification of C919 aircraft is key, and in this context, learning how to correctly understand and strictly meet the objectives DO-178C becomes essential.

Learning Objectives

By attending this course, you will be able to:

  • Acquire practical experience developing DO-178C compliant software
  • Bridge the gap between the theory and the practice
  • Master a software lifecycle compliant to DO-178C DAL A
  • Assemble a software approval review, including the stage of  involvement, review methods, review focuses
  • Demonstrate the compliance with DO-178C objectives to inspectors/DERs
  • Identify the basic tailor rules of software lifecycle for different DAL

Who Should Attend

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


It is recommended that participants have more than 2 years of experience in software engineering.  It is also 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.

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.
