Participants will gain practical knowledge and understanding of safety engineering issues when specifying, designing, testing, operating and maintaining hardware and software products as components of safety-critical systems in regulated industries.

Participants are exposed to important concepts of system and software safety, including hazard and risk analysis, failure modes and analysis, formal methods for safety assessment, and safety-critical system development assurance and certification. Use of mathematical modeling is oriented toward showing its contribution on production of high integrity hardware/software systems. Issues of testing, verification, validation, and certification including applicable industry standards (SAE ARP 4754A, SAE ARP 4761, RTCA DO-178C, and RTCA DO-254) are discussed.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of the course, the participants shall be able to:

  • Understand the essential concepts of system safety, dependability, and fail-safe operations.
  • Describe the role of safety analysis as a part of high integrity hardware/software lifecycle.
  • Derive and apply basic models and techniques of hazard and risk analysis.
  • Determine types of faults and describe the concept of fault-tolerance.
  • Identify methods of testing for safety and related verification and validation issues.
  • Become familiar with the certification process in aviation and related industries.


Systems, safety, software/hardware, and aerospace engineers and managers engaged in development of systems for aviation and related industries that may require formal certification. This course is tailored toward individuals actively involved in their organization's development of safety-critical systems.

Certificate of Completion

The participants attending all three days will be awarded a certificate attesting that they successfully completed the requirements of classroom and practical training for “System Safety Engineering and Certification” and will be awarded 1.8 Continuing Education Units (CEU’s).
