The Graduate Certificate in Fatigue Risk Management is a postgraduate course that aims to develop a comprehensive set of skills and knowledge relating to managing the risks associated with fatigue. The course is designed for, but not exclusive to, people currently working in the industry. The units are run by online study and provide blended staff-guided learning including both online engagement and face-to-face interactions.
As a student in the course, you will learn about safety and accident phenomenology, human factors and fatigue risk management.
Upon completion, you may continue your learning by enrolling in the Graduate Diploma of Occupational Health & Safety or the Master of Safety Science (Major) to further specialise in Human Factors Engineering, Accident Forensics, Risk Engineering, Transport Safety Management or Emergency Services Safety Management. By choosing either of these options you will gain full credit for completed studies.
