Course summary

The Threat and Error Management (TEM) course will introduce the TEM model as a valuable tool for managing operational threats and human error in normal operations. TEM provides an important foundation for improving aviation safety, both at an organisational and individual level. In a similar way to road vehicle drivers learning 'defensive driving' techniques, TEM gives pilots and other aviation safety critical personnel the tools to more proactively identify and manage operational threats or hazards.

TEM is a proactive approach to managing aviation safety risks and complexity within the operational environment. In this course, you will gain skills in applying TEM to proactively manage everyday operational situations, and understand how the model can be used in measuring and improving the safety of normal operations. The course is also a valuable foundation for further study in our high performance skills course, which explores in greater depth the countermeasures used to manage threats and errors effectively.

This Threat and Error Management course is specifically designed for pilots, and is relevant for those working across a wide range of different operational and flying environments. It is appropriate for both trainee or cadet pilots and more experienced flight crew. The course is also highly relevant to pilot trainers, managers, incident investigators, and aviation safety professionals.
