Adelard ASCE Advanced Course

ASCE Advanced
Adelard's ASCE (Assurance and Safety Case Environment) is a powerful, flexible and intuitive system for development and maintenance of assurance cases and delivery of assurance case reports. We offer a one-day ASCE course (the Foundation course), provided at our offices in London. For more experienced users, this can be extended into a two-day course (the Advanced course). Note: attendance at the Foundation course is not required to attend the Advanced course. However, a good level of proficiency in using ASCE is highly desirable to get the most from the Advanced course.


The ASCE Advanced training course builds on the Foundation course and develops the concept of “living” assurance cases, including aspects of: Collaboration Modular assurance cases Dynamic evidence linking Project management techniques Other notations At the end of the course you will have a deeper understanding of the full range of ASCE capabilities and how they can be applied.

The training is provided as a mix of presentation, product demonstration and hands on user exercises with ASCE itself. Must either complete the ASCE Foundation course or have equivalent level of experience. Prerequisites: Experience in ASCE equivalent to the Foundation Course followed by practical application of ASCE on real problems.

Nova provides support to the UK company in Australia.
