Welcome to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Human Factors Awareness Course.  This course has been developed to introduce FAA personnel with backgrounds in various disciplines to the science and methods of Human Factors.  While the course has been tailored for Integrated Product Team (IPT) members to foster an understanding of the role and contribution of Human Factors in FAA system development, we hope that it will be of interest and use to all FAA employees, students of Human Factors, and the general public.

At the end of this course, students should have an appreciation and awareness of the fundamentals of human factors, its methods, and the importance of having Human Factors specialists participate in FAA projects.

More in-depth information on specific FAA Human Factors programs and research can be found at  Guidance on the role of Human Factors in FAA acquisition programs can be found at
