The National Transportation Safety Board course, Marine Accident Investigation, scheduled for Dec. 7-11 at the NTSB Training Center in Ashburn, Va., still has openings for interested mid- to senior-level marine industry professionals.

The weeklong course covers the board's processes and procedures during a major marine accident; reviews human factors, medical factors, and electronic data elements in a marine investigation; offers best practices for comprehensive and thorough interviewing techniques and shares report preparation guidelines.

The course will be led by senior NTSB investigators who will use examples from recent NTSB investigations to demonstrate particular aspects of the investigative process.
