ARP-4754A Training covers systems and software engineering for airplane systems. ARP-4754A Training explains the governing structure that matches with ARP-4754A, and how it associates with other standards for civilian avionic systems and equipment. ARP-4754A Training discusses the features of the systems planning, execution, verification, and validation protocols together with the particular goals used in each Design Assurance Level (DAL).

ARP-4754A Training also teaches you the strategies for the development of civilian and commercial airplanes and systems and demonstrates how the safety analysis procedure incorporates with the system development and, specifically, how the methods of architectural extenuation can be applied to fulfill the expected safety objectives to recognize the DALs.
