This course will assist you in developing the professional skills that you will need as a Human Factors Engineer. Whilst there are elements of Human Factors domain specific information contained within this course, the course is more about the ‘soft skills’ you will need and how you approach your role as a Human Factors professional, (including your working practises and behaviours).

You will need to have completed the Principles of Human Factors Engineering, Human Factors Theory and Practice and Human Factors in the Design and Development of Systems courses prior to completing this course.

Please contact the course Instructor if you believe you have sufficient background knowledge to tackle this course.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand how to practise Human Factors in an ethical manner, including having a full appreciation of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors (CIEHF) code of ethics
  • Understand how to approach your Continuing Professional Development (CPD) as a Human Factors Professional
  • Know how to work effectively as part of a project team, including an understanding of typical project organisations for projects which include Human Factors

This course has 3 assignments that should take you 1-3 hours each to complete. The assignments will be marked and reviewed by the instructor, who will give you feedback on your progress. A pass mark is required on each assignment before the course can be completed.

Each module also has an ‘open book’ test which requires an 80% pass mark in order to proceed to the next stage of the course.

At the end of the course, a certificate of completion (endorsed by Liv Systems) will be awarded.

This course comes with a PDF booklet.

Human Factors Professional Skills

An excellent course with very interesting topics contained with the modules. The modules were well laid out and the exercises were harder than the previous ones in the other coursework but rightly so. Personally I struggled with the 'Pain Points' exercise but was guided by some helpful advice and support from Chris the tutor. This has enhanced my learning over the previous courses.
