A Brief History

Jay Hopkins has provided Error Prevention Training to an amazingly diverse group of clients over the past 25 years. In the late 1980s, Jay provided Aircrew Coordination Training to all branches of the U.S. military. In the early 1990s, he trained many Emergency Medical Services flight operations across the country. Then in 1995 he started the Error Prevention Institute, training hospitals, fire departments, and law enforcement agencies, along with a variety of companies and government agencies. Starting in 1998, EPI began to focus primarily on corporations involved in various aspects of aerospace manufacturing, assembly, test and launch operations.
