Electronic Systems Investigation (ESI)



Electronic Systems Investigation (ESI)
Duration: 4.5 days
CEUs: 3.6
Tuition: $2,875 USD 

This course provides participants with an overview of avionics and electrical systems, and an introduction to the new advanced avionics systems being introduced on modern aircraft. The course will also cover traditional and new sources of data that are becoming standard in industry and could be important in the critical examination phase of the accident investigation.

Participants will have an opportunity to learn electronic systems investigative techniques through group discussions, practical exercises and case studies of actual incidents and accidents. These techniques will include a basic understanding of data recovery techniques and micro circuit root cause analysis. Your instructor is an award-winning specialist with over 25 years of aircraft avionics experience and current field experience with the latest and next generation aircraft technologies.
