These are complex topics, as were the ones in the last module. In this course these topics are introduced to make students aware of them, and of some tools to overcome human factors problems such as decision making frameworks.
Human Factor Basics
Issues and Common Problems
Decision Making and Planning
Human and technical Resources
This awareness course is not designed to require the kind of human resources our Level 1 course and Climbers course involve. All assessments in this course are online and instantly checked automatically, nothing is ever submitted to any instructor.
This module has limited access to human resources but full technical support. There are some limited ways to contact an instructor and to interact with other students.
You can find tools for human interaction in "Module 0", including forums where you can post comments or questions for any part of this course. Each module has a Dropbox feature for sending files to anyone currently in the course.
While we provide minimal instructional human resources we do want to address any technical questions or problems as quickly as possible. In this case contact us using the Dropbox or on the forum.
There are quizzes incorporated into this course which allow students to check their understanding of the material. Quizzes may be taken as many times as desired, either to obtain a higher score or to attempt to ultimately get a perfect score.
Quizzes are all taken and scored online automatically.
Successful completion of this module requires taking all assessments but there are no minimum score requirements to continue to the next step in the learning path.
