Register to Participate
Have you ever thought about where to go to improve your ergonomics knowledge or skills? Is there ergo information you’re seeking but can’t find a resource to provide it? At HFES and AES, we are here to share information from our experts and help you sharpen those skills. In this session, you will learn about three university-based continuing education training programs. Representatives from Ohio State University, University of Michigan, and North Carolina State University will share information about their programs (material, objectives, target audience, format, etc.). You will have an opportunity to ask questions and join in a discussion of the benefits and training needs of those who apply ergonomics in the workplaces.
