Aviation Accident Investigator Training (including IncidentXP)

IncidentXP logo

We all face safety occurrences from time to time. Thankfully the most common ones don’t have catastrophic outcomes on the day. Whilst we would rather they didn’t happen, they do provide opportunities to learn and improve the way we do things. When properly investigated and analysed, these incidents have the potential to facilitate proactive safety improvements without waiting for a catastrophic accident to occur. 


This course equips participants with the practical skills needed to investigate and analyse operational events with a view to developing safety improvements within their organization. It applies the latest techniques in barrier based analysis which integrate elegantly with barrier based risk 

assessment, thus facilitating an environment where safety improvements are continuously made. 

Who is it for?

Any individuals conducting or overseeing incident/accident investigations within their organisation
