Human Factors Practitioner Programme [HUM-PRG-PP]

  Video lectures
  Case studies with experts
  Practical exercises
IANS has recognised the existing lack of Human Factors (HF) expertise in ATM. As more operational, technical or management personnel are willing to develop their expertise in the area of HF, we support them to be recognised as practitioner in their respective organisation for potential contributions in the domain of HF. This training programme has been developed specifically to fulfil this requirement.

The programme consists of:
  • 2 mandatory introductory classroom courses – HUM-HFA and HUM-DESIGN;
  • 2 mandatory e-learning courses HUM-FAT-ATC and HUM-STRESS;
  • a minimum of 2 out of the following specialised classroom courses - HUM-SFM, HUM-SYS, HUM-HF-CASE and HUM-TRM-A.
Candidates can choose more than 2 optional courses to follow. An optional additional e-learning course is proposed.

By making their selection of 2 optional courses to follow, candidates are encouraged to choose their “specialised knowledge”. This means that in the cases where the participant will be involved in the assessment or development of concepts, HUM-HF-CASE and HUM-SYS courses are the two that fit this profile the best. In cases where the participant will be involved in the delivery of the HF elements of the ATCO refresher training, the suggested courses to follow are TRM and SFM.

I addition to the above, HF Practitioner Diploma is subject of:
  1. Applicant holds university degree in relevant studies (Aviation Psychology and/or Applied Human Factors) or
  2. Submits evidence of active involvement in the OPS application of HF Case or
  3. Submits evidence of active involvement in the OPS application of DESIGN e.g. color scheme definition for the CWP, layout of the CWP .. or
  4. Is active (at least 3 sessions in 3 years) TRM/HF facilitator or
  5. Has completed personal HF assignment (details to be agreed with the HUM-PRG-PP team)
Details of this personal assignment are communicated to participants upon registration to the program.
After completing this training programme, participants will be able to:
  • explain the essential HF concepts for ATM and elements of relevant applied psychology
  • provide support in projects related to HF and better integration of HF in operations.
Participants will also be aware of on-going regulatory developments concerning the role and the responsibilities of an HF Practitioner.
