Courses on interviewing, transportation disaster response and aircraft accident investigation to be offered by NTSB in March

February 27

The National Transportation Safety Board is offering two investigative courses and one focused on family assistance at the NTSB's Training Center in Ashburn, Va., next month.

Cognitive Interviewing (March 19-20) provides the foundational knowledge and skills needed to conduct interviews of participants in, and witnesses to, transportation incidents or accidents. Learn more at http://go.usa.gov/BJBP.

The Transportation Disaster Response: Family Assistance course (March 25-27) was developed for commercial transportation officials, representatives of federal agencies, staff of non-governmental relief organizations and emergency managers and is instrumental in understanding how any organization involved in the accident response can most effectively support the family assistance efforts. Learn more at http://go.usa.gov/BJBG.

Aircraft Accident Investigation (March 31-April 11) provides participants with a comprehensive overview of the procedures and methods used and the skills required to investigate an aircraft accident. Examples from recent NTSB investigations will be used to demonstrate particular aspects of the investigative process. Learn more at http://go.usa.gov/BJKW.

Information about the NTSB Training Center, course registration information and a complete listing of all public courses offered is available at http://go.usa.gov/gfEA.
