Certificate In Human Performance Technology (HPT)

ITD World’s Human Performance Technology Certification Course equips you with a systemic approach to analyzing and improving workplace performance.


Human Performance Technology (HPT) is the application of scientific principles and technological advances to optimize human performance. Its aim is to analyze and improve human capabilities to perform optimally at work.

HPT has its roots in the early 20th century, with the emergence of industrial psychology and human factors engineering. These disciplines were initially concerned with improving worker productivity in factory settings, but they soon began to be applied more broadly to other domains such as healthcare, transportation, and military.

Analyze problems

Human Performance Technology (HPT) is a systemic approach to analyzing problems and finding lasting solutions. It provides the tools and techniques to solve real problems, in real time, with real measures of improvement.


The Certificate in Human Performance Technology (CHPT) training program is designed to help you address prevalent issues related to human performance in the workplace. Finding solutions to organizational problems is a daily occurrence for most organization leaders. Many will tell you that their solutions often fall short of being totally satisfactory.

Certificate in Human Performance Technology (HPT)

Without a systemic approach to performance issues, the following scenarios frequently occur:

  • What satisfies one group creates problems for another group
  • Today’s solutions give rise to tomorrow’s problems
  • Quick fixes create bigger and more complicated problems

We all fall prey to looking at problems in isolation. A single, isolated problem requiring a single, approach to analyzing problems and isolated solution. This linear approach is convenient. It gives us the satisfaction that we “did something” about the problem. An oil spillage on the shop floor is caused by a faulty gasket and the solution ¡is to replace the gasket. How many will proceed to ask why the plant uses faulty gaskets?
