Threat and Error Management (TEM) in UAV Operations

Threat and Error Management introduces the concept of “Threats”, those things that are the precursors to errors that may decrease safety margins in aviation. The TEM system uses established behavioural markers that will assist in creating “Strategies” that will prevent threats from leading to errors and negative consequences. The course provides an applied, practical approach to explaining TEM principles. Threat and error management is an invaluable tool in professional UAV operations creation and compliments any effort to identify hazards in any operation. Other Human Factors models are also studied in this course and used in real-life UAV accident analysis. Candidates are guided in three analysis processes of the same scenarios and discover valuable lessons.

This online TEM training uses tutorials, a quiz and an exam to complement the Light UAV Professional Pilot Course offered by the CQFA, at no additional cost. The accidents presented in the course happened for real. It takes 2 hours to complete and presents the origins of TEM and offers the knowledge to implement TEM in your daily UAV operations.
Total time estimated: 2 hours. Study at your pace, your access lasts 60 days. Course available in English or French.
