Fatigue Systems Specialist (FSS) 4-Day Workshop

CDue to the ongoing Covid 19 crisis, we will be rescheduling our Vancouver FSS workshop towards the end of the year with a date yet to be determined.

In the first workshop of its kind, students learn how to establish a clearly-defined and measurable in-house Fatigue Risk Management System (FRMS) as well as how to assess and mitigate fatigue-related risk using scientifically-proven, evidence-based tools and strategies. To receive certification status and FSS Designation, participants will be evaluated during course activities and must submit documentation to demonstrate their knowledge after completion of the course. All participants will be provided with access to the FSS portal, filled with additional research and support resources.
