NTSB to Offer March Safety Courses

The courses will cover interviewing, transportation disaster response, aircraft accident investigation, and more.

The National Transportation Safety Board will offer three safety courses this month. Two of the courses will be investigative, while one will be focused on family assistance. All three courses will be held at the agency's training center in Ashburn, Va.

The courses will cover interviewing, transportation disaster response, aircraft accident investigation, and more:

  • Cognitive interviewing, March 19-20. This two-day course provides the knowledge and skills needed to conduct interviews of witnesses to and participants in traffic accidents. According to NTSB, the first day will emphasize the cognitive interviewing technique to maximize the amount and quality of information obtained during investigative interviews, while the second day will focus on refining the CI techniques through discussion, demonstrations, and exercises.
  • The Transportation Disaster Response: Family Assistance, March 25-27. This course was designed for commercial transportation officials, representatives of federal agencies, and staffers of non-governmental relief organizations. The course will help them understand how organizations involved in accident response can most effectively support family assistance efforts.
  • Aircraft Accident Investigation, March 31-April 11. This longer course gives participants a detailed overview of the procedures and methods required for investigating an aircraft accident. Participants learn the procedures and methods through recent examples from NTSB investigations.

    The MGC Simple Plus

    The MGC Simple Plus is a simple-to-use, portable multi-gas detector that runs continuously for three years without needing to be recharged or routinely calibrated after its initial charge and calibration during manufacturing. The detector reliably tests a worksite’s atmosphere for hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, oxygen and combustible gases (LEL). Additionally, it is durable enough to withstand the harshest treatment and environments, which is why it has an IP 68 rating. The MGC Simple Plus is also compatible with a variety of accessories, such as Gas Clip Technologies’ new GCT External Pump. Visit gascliptech.com for more information. 3
