Swinburne's Graduate Diploma of Aviation prepares you for aviation management and leadership roles with a focus on aviation safety behaviours. This aviation human factors training program is designed specifically for personnel currently involved in aviation looking to upgrade their skills in human factors in aviation management at a tertiary level.

Build on your understanding of human factors in aviation accidents and what the emerging issues and challenges facing the aviation industry are. Explore safety in operational teams and how to adopt effective communication and teamwork strategies. Identify complexity and provide aviation safety reporting and innovative solutions within a variety of industry scenarios.

Completion of this postgraduate course could lay foundations for further study or lead to roles in aviation management, such as airline or airport manager, flight or ground operator, and aviation safety authority. In addition, you will have skills that can be applied across a range of other resilient organisations and industries, including transport, supply chain and health.
