Integrate human factors training with medical product development

Are you looking to develop a strong understanding of the HFE process and how HFE fits into medical product development? If so, consider taking our eLearning courses designed to meet your needs. Take a single course, or to earn your certificate in Applying HFE to Medical Technology, take our eight foundation-level courses.

Our courses focus on all the key HFE activities, from user research to use-related risk analysis to usability testing. Completing these courses will help ensure you understand why each HFE activity is required and how to perform it.

In our courses, we share the practical knowledge that our large team of HFE specialists has gained from applying HFE to hundreds of medical products over decades. We draw on this experience to offer authoritative, practical, and enjoyable HFE courses.
