ARP4761: Safety Assessment Process for Civil Airborne Systems

Understanding the guidelines and methods for performing safety assessments called out in ARP4761, this 2-day course will review the recommended practices associated with showing compliance with certification requirements (e.g., 14 CFR/CS Parts 23, 25, 27, and 29 and 14 CFR Parts 33, 35, CS-E and CS-P) and will provide valuable knowledge for meeting internal safety standards. Primarily for civil airborne equipment, the processes and tools may be applied to other applications.

Guideline information for conducting industry accepted safety assessments including Functional Hazard Assessment (FHA), Preliminary System Safety Assessment (PSSA), and System Safety Assessment (SSA) will be reviewed and discussed. Safety analysis methods will also be presented.

In addition to the seminar handout, a copy of the ARP4761: Guidelines and Methods for Conducting the Safety Assessment Process on Civil Airborne Systems and Equipment standard will be provided to each attendee.
