Mike Doiron is returning to Alaska, bringing his always unique and entertaining style of teaching.  This year's presentation will be a one-day course covering Human Factors and Decision Making aimed at improving operational effectiveness through individual and team performance.

This course is intended to heighten the attendees awareness of the development of the error chain in personal performance and provide assistance in developing corrective action plans in an operational environment.

Topics include:

  • Threat & Error Management (Real Time Risk Management)
  • Human Information Processing
  • Individual Human Factors
  • Naturalistic Decision Making in Priority Situations
  • Preventing Controlled Flight Into Terrain Accidents (CFIT)

We encourage everyone involved in implementing safety programs, training programs, maintenance program, aviation management and line personnel to attend this training.

This course will be offered twice, so twice the oppportunity to get as many of your staff members involved and trained.  If you haven't taken one of Mike's classes before, you are in for a treat.  If you have, well we don't need to say anything more, other than why are you waiting to sign up.

Mike's extensive experience as an accident investigator for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada and as an aviaiton safety inspector for Tranport Canada gives him a unique insight into the realities of human performance in the aviaiton decision making environment.  Mike remains the consumate Safety professional, providing instruction around the world, and enthusiastically bringing everyone within the aviation community together in the name of safety.
