Act with Confidence, Communicate Openly, and Lead Successfully
Cockpit Meets Medicine
At the end of the 1970s, NASA made an amazing discovery – scientists identified the human error as the primary cause of serious aviation accidents. The weak point wasn’t malfunctioning technology, but the highly qualified pilots.
What Had Happened?
In a critical moment, the pilots failed to communicate effectively, assess their own abilities, and make sound situational decisions – all things that had been neglected in training up until that point. And all things that since then – under the term “human factors training” – have played a pivotal role in flight crew training and today are even required by law.
It’s all about the team – our IC training strengthen medical professionals’ interpersonal skills.
IC training is based on the Lufthansa Group’s human factors training for flight personnel – so you’ll learn from the best.
Successful airlines, particularly the Lufthansa Group, have continually improved these training courses in recent years, thereby significantly reducing the rate of errors caused by human factors.
One-of-a-Kind Expertise from Airline Operations
Through its Interpersonal Competence Training program, Lufthansa Aviation Training makes this one-of-a-kind expertise from airline operations available to you. Together with experienced doctors, nurses, risk managers as well as medical educators from the DGOU, our human factors trainers have applied and adapted the findings from aviation to clinically relevant situations.
