The Learning Pathway:
This is a unique professional development learning pathway, the first of its kind, developed specifically to address a business need for human factors skills. It includes the eLearn, Level 1 and Level 2. In addition, you'll become more of a specialist in two areas by moving to the Full Pathway. The Pathway is supported by the requirement for a mentor who will help you boost your professional development and get the most from the activities you'll need to carry out as you move through the Pathway.
Why you should take this Pathway:
- Human factors is a vital component of any business but people knowledgeable and skilled in the discipline are in short supply. This Pathway offers a route to attaining those competencies.
- The Pathway allows you to gradually build up a pragmatic, flexible and transferable skill set in human factors so you’ll become a confident and sought-after asset for your organisation.
- The Pathway signposts a comprehensive set of resources for self-study in a variety of formats that includes written guides, textbooks, standards and briefing notes, together with podcasts, videos and webinars. The majority of these resources are freely available.
- Alongside these resources, the Pathway provides you with sets of activities to carry out so you’ll be able to apply the methods, tools, and techniques you’re learning, building up your skills and confidence as you go, so you should never feel out of your depth.
- Built into the Pathway are a number of support tools that allow you to assess your knowledge and understanding at the start and throughout the course of your study.
- A mentor, fully-qualified in human factors, will be on hand to offer practical support and guidance, so you’ve always got someone to talk to if you’re unsure how to proceed or you want reassurance about your progress. They will also help you to put together your application for Technical Membership along the way, so you’ll be ready to submit it as soon as you’ve completed the Pathway.
- A handbook is provided that will take you through the Pathway step-by-step but you set the pace so you learn at a speed that works for you and fits comfortably with your current commitments, ensuring you have time to benefit fully from the knowledge you’re gaining.
- The Pathway leads to eligibility to apply for recognition as a Technical Specialist of the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics & Human Factors.
The Pathway unfolds over 3 levels, each one delving deeper into the topics and giving you a more thorough understanding. After you’ve completed each level, a set of multiple-choice questions will allow you to consolidate your knowledge, therefore you will need to understand the information at each level before moving on to the next.
- Free Human Performance eLearning - provides an introduction to human performance for the energy sector, which can be completed within 1-2 hours.
- Human Performance for the Energy Sector – Certificated eLearning - provides an introduction to human performance for the energy sector, which can be completed within 40 -80 hours and once completed awarded with a certificate.
- Human Performance for the Energy Sector - Level 1 introduces the individual topics, giving you a high-level overview of each. For example, in the task analysis topic, you’ll learn what a critical task is and how to identify where mistakes could be made. Activities include walk-throughs, observations and discussions.
- Full Human Performance Learning Pathway for the Energy Sector - This is a unique professional development learning pathway, the first of its kind, developed specifically to address a business need for human factors skills. It includes the eLearn, Level 1 and Level 2. In addition, you'll become more of a specialist in two areas by moving to Level 3. The Pathway is supported by the requirement for a mentor who will help you boost your professional development and get the most from the activities you'll need to carry out as you move through the Pathway.

How long does Level 2 take to complete?

Who is this Pathway aimed at?
Anyone who needs to apply human factors in their organisation. You could be a Safety Engineer, a Process Safety Engineer, an engineer working in project or you could be an Operations Specialist. Whatever your job, you’re unlikely to have a role centred only on human factors, therefore the Pathway has been designed to be flexible enough to accommodate your normal working duties and the time you have available.
The Pathway could be included in your plan of work with the understanding that the practical activities set out in the Pathway are likely to take place as part of your on-the-job professional development.
How will it benefit me?
On completion of the Pathway, you’ll be eligible to apply for membership of the CIEHF as a Technical Specialist, ensuring that your hard work and accomplishments are formally acknowledged. This means that you’ll be recognised as having the competence and capability to coach colleagues, to inform senior level discussions, and to apply, integrate, and deliver programmes of work in human factors using the tools and techniques you’ll learn about on this Pathway.
