Continuing Education

The Ergonomics Program periodically offers courses through COEH's Continuing Education program. For registration and more information on upcoming courses, visit their website, or contact them directly.  Below is a list of annual courses organized by the UC Ergonomics Research & Graduate Training Program.

Summer Institute Workshop

The UC Ergonomics Research & Graduate Training Program, the UC Center for Occupational and Environmental Health, the Bay Area HFES Chapter and the San Francisco ASSE present a 2-day course on the latest updates, techniques and tools to assess physical exposures in the workplace.  Advancements in technology and well known and risk assessment tools have evolved and allow for more precise exposure assessment and interpretation. This course includes seminars and hands-on workshops for participants to learn about these new technologies and approaches to measuring physical exposure and assessing risk for musculoskeletal disorders. (Annually during the 2nd week of July)

Online Ergonomics  Program

This program is designed to provide expertise in the core competencies required for CPE Certification by the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE). These courses are ideal for learners with a degree in a related field (Industrial Engineering, Physical/Occupational Therapy, Kinesiology/Biomechanics, Occupational Health Nursing, Industrial Hygiene, etc.) or as a refresher for those with degrees in Human Factors. Our goal is to provide experience and emerging (new) Ergonomists with the latest knowledge, best practices, and preparation so they can get their CPE certification and have a significant impact on worker health and productivity.
