World aviation bodies and regulators have recognized the need for ongoing human factors training amongst safety critical personnel in the aviation industry. Within airlines this human factors training is largely done in-house by facilitators who have a background in human factors training or who are trained up with the skills and knowledge to accomplish this task. Providing a postgraduate qualification which provides a pathway for development of advanced knowledge in this field will be an attractive option for both facilitators and airlines.

This course provides the background of training and teaching techniques often used by in-house airline training departments in accordance with national and international regulatory guidance legislation. Concomitantly it expands students' understanding of adult learning concepts in order for students to develop better practices in human factors training. The course also provides instruction which will lead to a thorough understanding of human factors knowledge assessment and behavioural marker systems.
