Upcoming Courses

Instructor: Andrew Appleton
October 31 - November 23, 2022
This course meets on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3:00pm to 6:30pm US Central Time.

This introductory course will provide attendees with a solid foundation of knowledge and skills necessary to successfully apply Human Factors Engineering (HFE) and Human System Integration (HSI) to their daily work. Attendees will attain familiarity with and trust in HFE/HSI principles and practices to consider and implement at their workplace. This understanding will provide attendees with the knowledge and skills to inject HFE/HSI at an early stage in the life cycle of their aeronautical products and systems. Doing so will produce a safer, user-centered product that can lower the cost of the product over the entire course of its life cycle.

Earn 28 classroom hours and 2.8 CEUs.

Who Should Attend?

Aeronautical product designers, aeronautical system specialist engineers, aviation system safety specialists, aircraft occupant safety specialists and airworthiness program managers.
