Human error is a part of everyday life - and often the cause of problems in Aviation, which is why we offer human factors training courses. Build on your current knowldege of Aviation, and learn the strengths and limitations of humans to help build more robust and foolproof infrastructure and processes.

When you graduate from human factors in aviation training at Swinburne, you’ll understand the history of human error in aviation and be prepared to help prevent it in the future.

Learn to design systems that anticipate, predict and cater for human errors through a combination of theoretical and practical learning.
