This course will teach students entering the aviation industry in a managerial or supervisory capacity an in-depth knowledge of the human performance limitations which sometimes affect individual behaviour, and the ensuing risks to safety caused by such breakdowns. They will learn about possible vulnerabilities throughout the system, and not just in their specialty area and that there are systemic processes in place to mitigate for human performance failures across the aviation system. Having an in-depth understanding of human factors concepts across a broad range of disciplines will allow them to understand human factors implications and how they integrate factors across different elements of the aviation system.
