Oxford Research Institute
Certification in Industrial Ergonomics & Human Factors Engineering
ORI Main Page
Oxford Research Institute Inc. (ORI), an IRS approved nonprofit corporation, has a fully instituted Certification Program In Human Factors Engineering and Industrial Ergonomics. In our view, the best measure of the qualifications and competence of professional persons in most technical fields is that obtained by the judgment of peers in that particular field and the quality of technical products produced by the professional. Given this, and the need for evidence of qualification in Ergonomics/Human Factors, the Oxford Research Institute has established a rigorous process for certification based upon a controlled peer review process. Oxford offers three certifications: Certified Industrial Ergonomist (CIE), Certified Associate Ergonomist (CAE), and Certified Human Factors Engineering Professional (CHFEP). Oxford Research Institute is committed to performing these certifications on a "cost" basis.
