NTSB holding marine investigation courses

The National Transportation Safety Board is offering two marine safety investigation courses for marine industry professionals.

The first, Accident Investigation Orientation for Marine Professionals, will be offered Oct. 7-8 at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Va. It is aimed at mid- to senior-level marine industry professionals interested in learning more about the safety board's processes and procedures during a major marine accident and the role of an investigation participant.

This is the first time the NTSB has offered this program as a stand-alone course.

The second course, Marine Accident Investigation, will be offered Jan. 26-30, 2009, also at the NTSB Training Center. It provides in-depth exposure to NTSB investigative techniques and methods. This course is particularly appropriate for in-house investigative and safety personnel employed by the marine industry, according to the NTSB. This is the first time the NTSB has offered this course.

Representatives from the NTSB Office of Marine Safety will lead both courses, but other senior professionals from the safety board will serve as guest presenters on a variety of relevant topics, including public affairs, research and engineering, and safety recommendations.

Descriptions of the courses, registration information and cost to attend can be found on the NTSB Web site. (Click on the “Training Center” button.)
