Course Offerings - Seminar and On Demand
BCPE Prep Course
We are the only organization that provides seminar and web-based preparation courses for the BCPE certification credentials. However, the seminar is available only by special request for companies and organizations who can fill a class. Our courses and mentoring programs are designed to improve confidence, and provide you with a focused format to devote your time to study and resource review. However, what separates Ergo-Online from other web-based training is the one-on-one mentoring that we provide our participants. We have documented results of our participants successfully passing the BCPE examinations since 1998. To review the BCPE Core Competencies review this page.
We do not teach the test or the test questions; we focus on making sure participants understand the logic and thought processes specific to becoming a certified human factors/ergonomist/user experience professional. Don’t accept the current 35% pass rate of first time exam takers. Join those who have worked with us, to achieve a 98% pass rate on their first attempt taking the exam.
The Certified Physical Demand Analysist training provides individuals with the skill set to accurately analyze and document the physical demands of jobs. Although often confused, Physical Demand Analysis and Ergonomic Risk Analysis are two completely different types of analysis that quantify job tasks in very different ways. Physical demand analysis quantifies the physical requirements to perform essential functions of a job does not attempt to quantify or associate risk of injury. Physical demand analysis supplement traditional job descriptions by providing quantified data for job tasks. Our physical demand analysis process is unique in that it emphasizes Visual Documentation™ techniques unique to our process. Physical demand reports are commonly used for return-to-work, post-offer / pre-hire testing, fit-for-duty testing, functional capacity evaluations (FCEs) and the develop of job specific functional testing protocols. Participants will learn how to define, measure, collect, and successfully document job physical demands. Individuals who complete the Certified Office Ergonomic Analysist training and pass the required exams will be certified to perform physical demand analysis.
Certified Functional Test Developer
The Certified Functional Test Developer draws upon a complete understanding of a physical demand report to develop task specific functional testing protocols. Tasks specific testing protocols closely replicate job specific tasks and seek to identify individuals who can and cannot perform essential functions of the job efficiently and safely without risk of injury to themselves or other workers. Functional test protocols can be used for return-to-work, post-offer / pre-hire testing, fit-for-duty testing or functional capacity evaluations (FCEs). Individuals who complete the Certified Functional Test Developer training and pass the required exams will be certified to develop functional testing protocols.
