Professional Members of HFESNZ have undergone an application and peer review process assessing their human factors and ergonomics education, supervised training and experience against our society's membership criteria. Certified Professional Members have met all education, supervised training and experience criteria. Associate Professional Members have met the necessary education and supervised training criteria, but have not yet gained all the experience required. Technical Professional Members have detailed knowledge of some education topics and a 'systems' and HFE approach to their work, but will be working in a more narrow field of HFE practice.
All Professional Members are required to abide a Code of Conduct and a Complaints and Disciplinary Process applies. It is a requirement for Certified Professional Members providing consultancy services to hold appropriate Professional Indemnity, Statutory Liability and Public Liability Insurances, and this is recommended for Associate and Technical Professional Members.
Professional Members may have a range of experience, interest areas and fields of expertise so it is recommended that you make enquiries to ensure you find someone with the required skill set.
