Mentor Graphics offers several types of DO-254 training, both for DO-254 applicants (i.e., project teams that must comply with DO-254) and DO-254 certification authorities.
DO-254 Compliance Overview Course
This two-day training class provides an overview and application of DO-254 as defined by current FAA guidance. Students will learn current FAA and EASA guidance on the application of DO-254 in airborne systems, including how to:
- Navigate and understand the RTCA/DO-254 document
- Apply the DO-254 lifecycle and supporting processes
- Understand system safety assessments and the DAL
- Set up a project correctly through proper planning
- Follow the current guidance for DO-254 projects
- Identify and avoid common pitfalls in DO-254 projects
- Review and use the FAA AEH Job Aid
Who should take this class? Project managers, process managers, design, verification, and quality assurance engineers and managers working on projects requiring DO-254 certification.
About the instructor. Tammy Reeve, of Patmos Engineering Services, Inc., is a full-time, level A FAA Designated Engineering Representative (DER) with more than 10 yrs experience in review and approval of CEH and more than 20 yrs in airborne systems and certification.

Methodologies & Tools for FPGA & ASIC Development
Taught by subject matter experts from Mentor Graphics, this course covers the basics of today's hardware design methodologies and tools. The course can be tailored to fit students' needs, and can range from a one-day workshop with hands-on exposure to FPGA design to a multi-day class covering traditional and modern FPGA and ASIC design methods.
Who should take this class? Design engineering representatives (DERs), process assurance engineers and others who are involved in the DO-254 certification process but not necessarily on the design team.
Modern Methodologies Discussions
Mentor Graphics offers less formal one-on-one discussions, usually at no charge, to help students understand modern FPGA and ASIC design methodologies, and address how they apply to DO-254 compliant programs. Discussions can include advanced verification methods, C->HDL-based design flows, co-simulation methods and model-driven development.
Who should take this training? Design engineering representatives (DERs) involved in DO-254 compliant programs.
