Human Factors in Training

Human factors practitioners working in the field of training are involved in training development and research. The technology of training has advanced dramatically in recent years with the advent of such developments as low-cost computer-generated visual displays, training approaches using artificial intelligence, and networking of computers for training.

The human factors practitioner is an important part of a team responsible for designing and implementing training for large systems and training devices. Specific activities include the following:

  • Developing user profiles that match equipment characteristics

  • Developing user interfaces, controls and displays, and technical information to train in operation and maintenance

  • Developing, evaluating, and implementing innovative technologies and approaches for training

  • Testing prototypes

  • Evaluating training techniques and programs of instruction

Learn more about human factors in training through peer reviewed papers, media sources, and books.
