This program includes six eight-week courses, designed specifically to prepare individuals for certification by the Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics (BCPE). CPE certification is a gold standard ergonomics certification in the United States and matches globally set certification requirements suggested by the International Ergonomics Association.
These courses are ideal for learners with a degree in a related field (Industrial Engineering, Physicial/Occupational Therapy, Kinesiology/Biomechanics, Occupational Health Nursing, Industrial Hygiene, etc.), who may lack Human Factors and Ergonomics (HFE) specific training, or as a refresher for those with a degree in Human Factors.
Not everyone will need to take all six courses, and you should feel free to pick the courses that best fill the gaps of your Human Factors and Ergonomics Education. However, if you have a degree in a related field but no formal training in HFE, we strongly encourage you to take all six courses to optimize your effectiveness in the field and prepare you for certification.
Our goal is to provide experienced 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.
