Aeromedical Investigation (AMED)

Duration: 4.5 days
CEUs: 3.6
Tuition: $2,750.00 USD

Course Description:

Aeromedical aspects frequently contribute to aviation accidents. There are multitudes of potential considerations and concerns involving personnel involved in an aviation mishap. This course will equip the student with a basic understanding of aeromedical factors commonly encountered during an investigation.

How You Will Benefit:

You will learn to recognize the hazards of pilot exposure to self-imposed and environmental stress factors and unsafe practices during the operation of an aircraft that may lead to impairment, incapacitation, or death.

You will enhance your knowledge of aerospace physiology and thus improve your ability to assist an aeromedical expert during an investigation. In addition, you must possess the necessary knowledge of aerospace physiology to produce a complete and accurate report to your organization regarding the impact of aviation-related stress and medical factors.
