Terms and Conditions


‘Coming onto this course, I wanted to refresh my understanding of accident investigation and it absolutely delivered. Both presenters were great. They made the material accessible and fun, and their down to earth approach was greatly received. I will be sending members of my team through the various human factors and investigation courses RSSB offers.’
