Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics

...and now for another Human Factors Minute! The Board of certification in professional ergonomics provides professional certification for practitioners of human factors/ergonomics and user experience (HF/E/UX) who demonstrate expertise and comprehensive understanding of the discipline. Employers and consumers know they are working with a professional who has met a rigorous standard. BCPE provides the gold standard of HF/E/UX certification, recognized nationally and internationally. Although they provide one professional certification, practitioners work in many different domains and the term for HF/E/UX varies by domain. No matter what the area of focus, the underlying knowledge and systems approach remain the same. BCPE certificants obtain professional level of certification through one application process and exam. Certificants choose the designation* that reflects their work focus, either:Ergonomics, Human Factors, or User Experience.

Nick Roome

Nick is currently a Senior UX Researcher at Turvo in the Pacific Northwest, focused on developing innovative solutions and optimizing human performance for SaaS based supply chain logistics programs. Alongside colleague and friends, Blake Arnsdorff and Barry Kirby, Nick hosts and produces Human Factors Cast, a weekly podcast that investigates the sciences of human factors, psychology, engineering, biomechanics, industrial design, physiology and anthropometry and how it affects our interaction with technology. Nick’s other areas of interest include, but are not limited to virtual, augmented, and mixed reality, systems engineering, and artificially intelligent systems.

Nick Started Human Factors Cast in early 2016 as a side-project. He believed that the way Human Factors concepts were being communicated is broken and saw a way to fix it. After getting initial traction, Nick moved to work on the Human Factors Cast Digital Media Lab and began assembling a multi-disciplinary team to test out new concepts in Human Factors communication.
