Course detail: System Safety Assessment for Commercial Aircraft Certification

This course develops the skills necessary to write and review system safety assessments for regulatory compliance to 14CFR 2X.1309 and 23.2510. Class participants are walked through the evolution of the safety rule and specific techniques for compliance through a comprehensive look at the regulations and current regulatory guidance. In-depth reviews of industry standards in system safety such as SAE ARP4761 and SAE ARP4754A, and ASTM F3230-17 followed by exercises, examples, and class discussions strengthens the students understanding of safety for compliance. By the end of the class, students gain the ability to develop meaningful system safety requirements, design safety compliant systems and equipment, and improve their skills in developing system safety compliance documentation.

Please note: This course replaces Commercial Aircraft Safety Assessment and 1309 Design Analysis. Completion of either course counts toward earning a certificate.
