The course is specifically designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the requirement for effective Human Factor Training and build competence with the goal of ensuring that the trainer has the appropriate material to be able to deliver the training in an effective and clear manner, to be able to motivate and to facilitate debate and discussion.


For the most successful organisation to thrive it is necessary to effectively manage human factors within the organization and to do so we need to address the risks and exposures.

Moreover, it is generally accepted that the most effective HF training, is training which is taken into full account-specific organizational issues and has a direct connection with the Quality and Safety System of the organization.

In Fact, all threats need to be understood and appropriate mitigations put into place to address them.

Having your own instructor and organisational instructional methods will directly support this objective.

The course is highly practical and promotes best training practices, it is an industry-specific four-day program specifically designed for the who need to manage, or deliver Human Factors Training.

Aviation Maintenance Human Factors Training has been mandatory since 2006 for all Part 145 Organizations.

The HFTTT course stimulates involvement and provides for powerful motivation. It also introduces the delegate to training skills and provides the confidence which can be developed to deliver effective Human Factors Training within your organizations.

Developing Effective HF training Within Your Own Organisation

When the organisation has in house capability to deliver HF training a range of options is created which for example acknowledges that the HF exposure created by the role of Manager or Supervisor is quite different from that experienced by a Line Maintenance Engineer or a component workshop mechanic. With your own HF Training Instructor, it is possible to develop multiple courses to better meet the organisation’s needs.
