During March, the NTSB will offer two courses related to accident investigation and one on accident response and victim family support at its training center in Auburn, Va. The Aircraft Accident Investigation course will run from March 31 through April 11 and is designed to provide 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.

A related course on cognitive interviewing, which is geared to providing the foundational knowledge and skills needed to conduct interviews of participants in, and witnesses to, transportation incidents or accidents, will be held on March 19 and 20.
