It shows that you're running a high standard degree course that attracts students and enables them to gain knowledge across the discipline, using a unique systems approach.


Courses accredited by us are promoted here and in response to enquiries for learning. We only recommend accredited courses to people who ask us about human factors study.


You can use a special CIEHF-accredited degree course logo and the text “This is a CIEHF Qualifying Course” in your publicity for the course, enabling it to stand out from the crowd.
