Professional Practice

The Humaneering Institute is a self-regulatory organization (SRO) with accountability and responsibility for the content, application, and practice of humaneering technology. This accountability and responsibility includes the education, qualification, and conduct of people and organizations who represent themselves as knowledgeable about and expert in the application of humaneering.

Similar to physical-science based engineering technology, human-science based humaneering technology promises many positive results for its users and for the people impacted by its use. Alternatively, the misunderstanding, misrepresentation, or misuse of humaneering technology can be damaging.

To assure the quality and authenticity of humaneering technology and its effective and ethical use, the Institute is in the process of developing a rigorous program for the accreditation of education and training programs, licensing of individuals who want to practice humaneering professionally, and the certification of products and services that are designed and produced consistent with the principles and methods of humaneering technology.

More information on the professional practice of humaneering will be made public when it is available..
