Offering extensive facilities to industry and university members alike, The Centre for Elite Performance, Expertise and Training provides complete access to advanced technological resources. These advancements allow the Centre to expand its point of difference for those looking to gain opportunities within virtual reality and simulation contexts, among a host of other possibilities. See below for more detail.
The Macquarie University Simulation Hub draws together a range of simulation devices into one location, enabling CEPET's members and other leading experts from the University and industry to collaborate on translational research across a wide-range of disciplines.
Macquarie University Simulation Hub provides our researchers to:
- a virtual reality space
- driving and flight simulators
- a sports and movement lab
- rooms that simulate a bar, office and therapist's office.
Access to the hub and its facilities is a distinct point of difference for the centre.
EXPERT Intensive Skills Evaluation (EXPERTise)
EXPERTise is a comprehensive, psychological assessment tool that measures the reliability of expert decision-making skills in challenging and critical circumstances. EXPERTise gives in depth insights into how individuals gain information and then utilise it during the process of making an expert decision.
CEPET 'Performance in Practice' Training Courses
Primarily categorised into two main components that focus on improving performance in practice, CEPET’s training courses are comprised of expert advice and insights.
Practical training courses are based on the notions of decision making, human error, the use of communication, stress and fatigue, and situational awareness.
This understanding is represented through evidence-based models that show the connections between multi-disciplinary experiences and psychological factors.
Modules can be taken individually or as part of a longer course, depending upon the needs of the organisation. For more information, contact Professor Mark Wiggins.
