Create Human Performance subject matter experts within your organization’s own workforce

Inspired by TOPGUN

Modeled upon the framework of the Navy Strike Fighter Tactics Instructor program (TOPGUN), CAVU’s Human Performance Instructor (HPI) Course is a five day course designed to create Human Performance subject matter experts within your organization’s own workforce.

This course isn’t for “just anyone.” The HPI certification is meant for those within your organization that demonstrate a high level of motivation, commitment, and competency. Prior to being nominated by their supervisor to attend the in-person course, the student must first fully complete CAVU’s Leadership PRO Online Course and pass a Leadership PRO test to demonstrate mastery of the subject matter.

Upon graduation, HPI graduates will be able to perform high-quality engagements within their teams to sustain human performance training on-site and maintain a high level of operational excellence.

The graduates will become part of the HPI alumni and receive discounted annual subscription to the online Leadership PRO Course system where they’ll receive new training
material and tools regularly.
