Fatigue degrades various types of human performance and is inevitable in a 24/7 industry like aviation. It is a very real hazard that is a prime causal factor in many accidents and is associated with many functions of operations. Regulators therefore require that fatigue be included in safety analysis. Consequently, more and more airlines, ANSPs and service providers are actively managing fatigue. 

This eLearning course on Fatigue Management will provide you with foundational knowledge in the domain. You will gain a clear understanding that fatigue cannot be eliminated, so it must be managed.
