  • Roles and responsibilities of different agencies in an investigation
  • How we use occurrence investigation information
  • Causal factors
  • Interviewing techniques during occurrence investigations
  • Remaining objective and avoiding cognitive bias
  • Scene investigation
  • The content of a basic report
  • The criteria of what is acceptable and not acceptable in an investigation report
  • Strategies for feeding information from a safety report back to an organisation.

You’ll receive comprehensive guidance material and access to all the latest CAA safety resources and support.
