The knowledge and experience of the instructor (Craig Geis) is amazing. The class answers many questions we have as officers out in the field.
Craig Geis is a master of his craft. All of his topics were relevant, informative, fascinating and very applicable to so many aspects of life, including flying.
There are always three parts to an incident/OIS: The officer, the perp, and the truth/science.
Along with Street Survival, this is THE BEST CLASS I have attended in years. A MUST GO TO class for supervisors all the way up the chain.
Craig Geis is exceptional! In 10 years, this is probably the best training I have had. Such expertise and information for multiple professions, especially law enforcement.
This was one of the best and most relevant courses I've taken since attending the FBI National Academy.
This course (Human Factors Advanced Aviation) is ideal for any flight instructor or flight instructor candidate. It is also critical that any upper management take this course to connect better with their maintenance and flight crews.
Best class I ever attended. It made behavior we've all seen for years make sense.
It is astounding how versed Craig Geis is in the area of neuroscience and how it relates to human behavior.
I attended the Human Factors in Safety Management System (SMS) Analysis course at HAI delivered by Craig E. Geis, LTC, US Army, ret. The course was excellent. I should have taken this class a while ago. I am currently an SP in my organization, and this course will continue to pay dividends for progressions to come. Additionally, there were maintainers and safety personnel there, who took away more than expected from the course.The course looked in depth on the human factors aspects of errors in aviation and ground accidents. Mr. Geis also gave examples to remedy culture, training, and mental preparedness so as to prepare for anticipated high-stress situations.From an Army perspective, he built upon the rote memorization, and gave it a better understanding and meaning of human error. He included recent examples of civilian and military accidents to show how to analyze the crews' response, not to armchair quarterback, but to provide lessons learned into accident prevention.Mr. Geis will break down the components of the brain and how it all works, so we can better understand its effects on us during extreme stress. He will show how the most advanced aviators (10,000-hour guys) make catastrophic mistakes under extremely stressful situations based on human brain functions, not skill.He will show your instructors how to change their teaching techniques so as to prepare ground and aviators alike for high-stress situations.This is a great training opportunity, and I am also guiding my command into an on-site seminar for our organization.Highly recommend this class. It will include all aspects of aviation and ground operations. Make sure you include 1st responders at your organization.
