Human Factors

FAA-accepted 16-hour course of instruction on modeling the thought process to pinpoint the decisions that give rise to maintenance errors.

Air travel is one of the safest means of transportation in the world today. Quite often, while examining the cause of an accident, there is a set of simple human errors ("chain of events") that combine to create the incident. Maintenance errors play a key role in that chain of events in approximately ten percent of accidents. By breaking this chain of events at the maintenance level, accidents can be prevented.

During this course, we model the thought process of an aviation technician to pinpoint the decision(s) that gave rise to the maintenance error. Ultimately, reducing accidents by technicians will improve the overall business environment, and the whole aviation industry will benefit.

Several notable case studies are included to illustrate and emphasize the impact of how seemingly small failures in routine maintenance can produce some serious results.

Human Factors Refresher

FAA-accepted 8-hour course of condensed instruction on modeling the thought process to pinpoint the decisions that give rise to maintenance errors. Revisit the benefits of GLOBALJET’s Human Factors course with this one-day class.

This course is designed to refresh human factors basic training and re-qualify the aviation maintenance technician for certification of an aircraft type rating as required by the European Aviation Safety Agency, Canada’s Department of Transport, the Federal Aviation Administration, and other governmental type rating directives. It is also designed to familiarize other aviation-related maintenance support personnel with the elements of Human Factors.
